It’s been a little over a year since we started this podcast. In this interlude episode of sorts, we talk about our podcasting experience thus far, read some reviews, comments and thoughts people have sent us this past year, and talk a little about ourselves.
In the third installment of our interview series featuring intercultural and/or interracial couples, “Kidist” & “Dudley” take us through their fifteen year journey of love and friendship, and share their thoughts on the cultural similarities and differences between Jamaicans and Ethiopians.
In our second of a series of episodes on intercultural coupledom, we interview Elsa and Tom, an Ethiopian-Chinese married couple living in Canada.
In our first of a series of episodes exploring intercultural relationships, we interview an Ethiopian and Lebanese/Palestinian couple. High school sweethearts who are now on their 11th year of marriage with two children, the couple tell us about the beauty of their intercultural marriage and the challenges they faced along the way.
It’s a fine line between culture shock and “FOB” moments. What was confusing and painful in the moment– whether that’s mishaps of language, cuisine, hygiene, or social etiquette–becomes, in retrospect, a hilariously cringe-worthy anecdote. We have collected some of these for you in our fifth episode. Our own stories and those of contributors who, understandably, prefer to remain anonymous!
Follow “Senait” and “Kifle” on their journey from a small town in Ethiopia to America. They may not speak perfect English but they have a beautiful story to tell – one of love, sacrifice, pride in their hard work, gratitude for the little things, and dreaming big, despite having to start anew from almost nothing.
So you find yourself the Eve in the Garden of Vegan during tsom (lent). What if that juicy burger and cheesy pizza in the office lunchroom, forever tempting you, could speak? Here’s our dramatic reading of the conversation.
The subject of sex is taboo in many cultures, as it most certainly is in Ethiopian and Eritrean cultural norms. We asked a few Ethiopians and Eritreans living in the U.S. and Canada a few questions to learn more about this.
