Rootabaga Teaser: a little taste of coming episodes

Your one-minute crash course in Rootabaga – a bi-weekly podcast about expats with unusual stories or unusual jobs. Follow me as I travel the globe to tell their stories.

Coming in episode #3 – a Frenchman’s long career making violins in Korea

Coming soon in Episode 3 I meet up with my old friend Marc Chavaneau in South Korea where he has been making and repairing violins and cellos for a long 20-year career. We hand out in his instrument-filled atelier where he helps a young player with her posture, makes some repairs on her violin and tells all about his sometimes zany experiences as a craftsman doing business in Korea.

Deciding on a new logo is tough work

Been trying to choose a logo for Rootabaga. It’s tough. But at least the office is comfy – on the island of Koh Rong Samloem, Cambodia. After quitting my job in Hong Kong, I needed a little vacay before starting more interviews in Korea and the US. This was the perfect spot.


Calling Hong Kong quits to do a podcast

Only one way to do a podcast with face-to-face interviews in a bunch of different countries – pack up and go. 🛶

In this case it means putting everything in storage, giving up the comfy apartment, and calling it quits in Hong Kong. Off we go Feb. 20.




Good bye cozy rooftop..
