Season Two, Episode Four: The Expat
Reid Whitten, an international trade lawyer, willingly moved to his firm’s Brussels office. Three years later, expat life has turned out to be lonelier than he anticipated.
In a case of life mimicking life, I’m facing the very same issues as Reid. I wrapped my interviews with him way before leaving New York for Atlanta last month, and now my situation mirrors his. Listen on to find out just how, exactly.
The next time you hear from me, I’ll be one year older. The Lonely Hour is taking a little break, so I can get my bearings here in Atlanta and we can all enjoy the holidays. We’ll be back in late January, after my birthday.
Until then, I want to know: What does loneliness mean to YOU? Drop me a voicemail with your definition on Google Voice; dial (415) 663-5901—that’s 41LONELY01. Just make sure to include your name and an email address so I can get back to you, because I might use what you said on a future episode.
