Update: No episodes of Rootabaga have been uploaded but we still want to share our journey with you as I travel the globe to collect interviews, we edit and get ready for launch. It will take some time but the adventure is a blast so far and we’re confident the end product will be worth sticking around for. Until the final interview episodes are finalized please do stay tuned for some teaser episodes, photos and blogposts about the journey. Brandon
Rootabaga is a podcast in production. Join me as I travel the globe to bring you interviews with some of the amazing expats I’ve been lucky to meet in my 23 years as an English teacher, drummer and financial editor in Asia and Canada. You’ll meet a Swedish indie pop singer who found a second fame in Korea (and find out how we became drinking buddies and I became his drummer for a year). You’ll hear from two fellow Alabama boys who decided to show a country famed worldwide for its own barbecue how to do BBQ southern style. If I can track her down – you may find out why one vivacious young Ukrainian has chosen to live her life out of a backpack for almost three years now as she hitchhikes from Eastern Europe to who knows where. Then there’s my dear Korean friend who also happens to be a political dissident and spiritual guru who lives off the grid in Hawaii, South America and a remote mountain cabin near the North Korean border. People like me who couldn’t resist the urge to put down roots in a place far away from home.
