Introducing The Anywhereist Podcast
Maybe you’re a full-time expat, or a flexpat who lives part of the year in one place and part in another. Perhaps you’re traveling full-time while working remotely or freelancing. Maybe you’re running a business as a digital nomad.
Whatever the style of your Anywhereist life, you’re not afraid to start something new . . .
After years of writing content on the web, I’ve done just that — by starting a podcast for anywhereists.
Not sure what a podcast is? Here’s a definition. . .
I’ve mentioned podcasts before — I get some of my best ideas while walking and listening to other people’s podcasts.
For The Anywhereist Podcast, I teamed up with the young woman who’s been helping out on the monthly Live Q&A Sessions, Kitty Navias.
Kitty and I have some similar ideas and ideals, but very different perspectives. I’m close to retirement age, and Kitty’s a millennial. I’ve lived overseas and traveled a little, Kitty’s traveled a lot already.
I’ve spent the last 8 years developing a business that lets me live and work anywhere. During that time I’ve moved 7 times, and worked from hundreds of locations at home and abroad.
Kitty is a millennial who balances a lot of creative pursuits: she’s a writer, musician, and photographer.
Between the two of us, we feel like we have a lot to offer.
Why Should You Listen?
If you’re not accustomed to listening to podcasts, you may be wondering why you should spend time listening to it. What’s in it for you?
Each segment of the podcast will feature some aspect of how to live, work, and thrive anywhere. Sometimes it will be informational, sometimes we’ll interview someone who’s got an interesting Anywhereist experience to share.
Kitty loves coming up with productivity tools, techniques, and resources, so in each episode she’ll be providing us with tips and resources to keep our lives under control and moving in a forward direction as we become Anywhereists.
We aim to make the podcast informative, entertaining, and helpful.
As I mentioned before, I like to listen to podcasts when I’m out walking. I grab my phone and my earbuds, and head out the door. I also listen while I’m driving. I know people who listen to podcasts while they’re cooking or washing the dishes. It’s a great way to get information when you’re not in a position to sit still and read it.
Here’s some of what you can look forward to.
Episode 1: (Published) Insights on how you can choose the best place for YOU to live, along with a PDF you can download to help you develop your own roadmap for getting from your personal point A to point B.
Episode 2: (Coming June 12) An interview with a US expat who spent two years traveling around Mexico and Central and South America with her husband. On their way to Asia, though, something interesting happened. . .
Episode 3: (Coming June 17) Part 1 of a two-part series about how to start a profitable blog.
Episode 4: (Coming July 3) Part 2 of the profitable blog series.
Episode 5: (Coming July 10) An interview with someone who’s been a digital nomad since before that phrase existed in our vocabulary, and the incredible changes she’s seen during the past 10 years as working while traveling becomes mainstream.

Please Support the Podcast
I have to say, we’re having a lot of fun with the whole podcasting thing. So much fun, in fact, that I’d love to be able to scale back some of my other activities to devote more time to it. However, like all of you, I only have 24 hours in the day and limited financial resources.
If you enjoy the podcast, please support it in two ways:
- By doing business with the companies, products, or services we feature. (Yes, we have one “ad” per episode.) It helps us bring in needed extra revenue. I never recommend a company or product that I haven’t used myself, and it will always be something that’s useful for Anywhereists.
- By leaving a review in iTunes or the podcast service you use. That makes it easier for others to find, increasing the listener base and making it possible for us to spend more time coming up with great episodes for you.
I hope you enjoy listening to each episode as much as I enjoy making it.
