The Podcast

Americans in Germany Drinking Whiskey is a podcast for expats, by expats. Alex and Geoff discuss the various aspects of their lives living as foreigners in Europe, with the ultimate goal of providing an equal amount of advice, insight, and entertainment. 

The hosts of AGDW met in Berlin many years after each moved separately to Germany. This new friendship helped them to realize their shared passion for giving advice to prospective expats and newly arrived expats and hence, the podcast was born.

 

Each episode focuses on a different aspect of German and European life, culture and people - all from an outsiders point of view. They use their combined 15 years experience living in Berlin and their unique chemistry to not only give advice, but due so in a fun and casual way. However, this is not your average “living abroad” podcast. It has been infused with another international element - whiskey. During the introduction to each episode they open a new bottle of whiskey, which is then “tested” throughout the episode. The show is then wrapped up with a brief review of that week’s bottle. This is what led to the very practical title of, “Americans in Germany Drinking Whiskey.”

Topics Include:

• Myths about Germany

• Cultural differences between Germany & USA

• The difficulties of being an expat

• European Scams

• Food

• And more!

The Hosts

Alex

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.

Geoff

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.
