A kindergarten teacher that grew up in the little state of Rhode Island, USA. A few months after graduating college, Alex had a conversation with a friend living in Berlin. After a bit of convincing, he booked a one way ticket to Berlin, having never been to Europe in his whole life. Once there, he found a job, took some German classes and decided to stay for the long term.
A filmmaker and voice over artist that grew up in California, USA. After graduating high school he went on several backpacking tours through Europe and eventually decided to move to Vienna, Austria to learn the German language for a few months. This eventually put him on the path towards Berlin and those few months turned into many, many years.
Alex and Geoff met in Berlin many years after each moved separately to Germany. In the summer of 2019, while enjoying some (many) beers at the Prater beer garden, their girlfriends gave them the absurd suggestion of creating a podcast. After some thought, they realized it might actually be a fun idea considering how much they both enjoy giving advice to other expats who've recently arrived in Germany. The last step was to make it unique from other "living abroad" podcasts that already existed. Whiskey was the answer.
