In love with the podcast

Hey I’m Cynthia, and I have to say, I’m in love with your podcast. I went to Germany a few years back and really loved it there, but from a tourist point of view but starting this year I started thinking about moving there with my wife. Your podcast is so on point and just nice to listen to. I’m fr…

Great source of information and compelling stories

I am planning to move to Germany soon and found this podcast super helpful. But I listen to this podcast also because I just enjoy hearing the compelling stories and the thoughtful interviews.


Kind of a great chat. But ... (the German here) as to humor: everybody has a different view on it. But being German _I_ would say that a lot of humor, if one could call it that, in the US is primitive "Schadenfreude". People tumbling and falling. What is humorous about that? That is definitely not…

Grateful soon to be Auslander...

Thank you Shaun and all contributors! We're a family of Americans who will soon be making a corporate move to Germany. This podcast was the first we found while preparing to move, and it's been a gentle and relatable introduction to German culture. We've taken your book recommendations and other me…

I found this podcast whilst I was searching for idioms in German since I am learning the language, and now I listen to this podcast all the time, I am not someone who is really listening to podcasts but this one is really fun and interesting. I am from England and I live in Austria, I wish there wa…

A wonderful escape during my mundane job

Sitting in my job in Ohio and dreaming of going to Europe during the Coronaviruses, this podcast gives me a nice retreat, well done

Entertaining and infuriating

Found this podcast by accident and got curious about what immigrants think about my country. The show is quite entertaining, although somewhat infuriating. After ~60 episodes I'm convinced this whole thing is an elaborate scam with the sole purpose of triggering German listeners by sneaking in smal…

Great vibes from expat's experiences, nice to have a good time without all the drama

A wealth of knowledge and humour

I came across this podcast when I was part of the parkrun group interviewed for one of the earlier podcasts. I have become a regular listener (having never really been a podcast listener before). I have lived in Germany for 7 years and to listen to other people’s experiences and realize that I am n…

While I might be tolerated as a tourist, welcomed even, my age alone would prevent me from being long term German resident potential. Nevertheless, I am bingeing on episodes of The Germany Experience thanks to the fascinating, entertaining guests What an amazing cross-section of people—I hope there…

50 Years Later

I love hearing these interviews, and comparing the experiences of modern-day expats with mine from the year I spent in Germany in the late 1960’s. Shaun and his guests approach the subject of adapting to life in Germany with humor, exceptional insight, and a display of sentiment. Thanks to all of t…

Excellent podcast!

Each episode has something that speaks to me... I love it! I found the Fasching episode interesting because not all of us are big fans of it. There are pros and cons to wherever you live. Dankeschön 😊

Great Perspective on Germany

I’ve been a fan of this podcast for a few months now, and it’s only getting better as Shaun settles into a unique style and direction. He’s got a great radio voice, and takes the time plan out his interviews and topics well, with impressive editing. I’m excited to see what he’s got in store for…

Lots of practical advices

Very lively podcast with a whole bunch of stories and practical advices. Way to go Shaun!

Story-sharing in a fun way!

So many different stories of people with diverse backgrounds end up discovering the joys (and sometimes woes) of living in Germany. Thanks to Shaun we get to hear and learn from them! Hope to enjoy many more new episodes... :)

From a Germans perspective:

This podcast lets me appreciate my home country more and more. Shaun does a great job as a host, has a good voice, and I like his eyes.

Funny, relaxed and informative

Love this podcast. Gives a good overview and tips. Shaun is a super Host and very likeable. Will be waiting and listening out for the next episodes. Thanks!


Great Podcast, very entertaining and funny host! 👍
