Season 3, Episode 6. Today, the expats in Germany podcast worlds collide - because Shaun from Expat Life Germany is a guest on The Expat Cast! If you're not already listening to his show, get ready to hit subscribe, because Shaun hosts a fantastic weekly podcast where he shares interviews, resources, and thoughts about living in Germany as a foreigner. If you like this show, you'll love his.
Now, the tables are turned, and we get to know more about Shaun as he steps into the role of guest, rather than host. Shaun moved to Germany from South Africa years ago with his wife, in search of adventure and new experiences. Little did they know they'd fall in love with Germany and end up staying there permanently. They now have German citizenship and are raising two - soon to be three! - kiddos in their rural German village.
Their oldest son has a special need called SYNGAP-1, and Shaun shares with us how they've navigated the situation as foreigners and second-language German speakers. From doctor's visits to learning what resources are out there for kids like their son, it's been a whirlwind that's left them more in love with life in Germany than ever.

I just did a bunch of research to choose my first-ever German credit card, and I ended up choosing N26.
