In our podcast “Understanding Train Station”, we (Josh and Feli) explore the intricacies and pitfalls of living between cultures. The title is derived from the German idiom “Ich verstehe nur Bahnhof” which literally translates to “I only understand train station”. Similar to the English saying “It’s Greek to me”, it is used to express a lack of understanding which is an all too common feeling when dealing with another culture and living abroad. Feli (aka “German Girl in America” on YouTube) is a German living in the U.S. and Josh is probably the most “Germanized” American you’ll ever meet. We share our personal experiences, opinions, and tips about living abroad and want to help our listeners grow from only “understanding train station” to becoming comfortable with and excited about different cultures and living in a foreign country. While the main focus is on cultural differences between Germany and the United States, we frequently have guests from all over the world to broaden the conversation and share their experiences to see where there are similarities and interesting differences. Welcome aboard, we’re glad you’ve decided to join us! Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/understandingtrainstation/support
