Episode Five – A Trio of Expats


This episode is a bit different to what you’ve heard from us in the past, as it features not one but three interviewees in one single episode.

The reason for having three people in one episode is that I wanted to round off the first “season,” which by the way is a concept we will be moving away from, by getting multiple perspectives on what Luxembourg means to expats, what brought them here, and how they find life in the Grand Duchy. In short, what their experience of moving here and settling in has been like.

Episode Three – John-Paul Gomez (wurst.lu)


Hello all,

This episode features John-Paul Gomez, or JP, of wurst.lu fame. Originally from the US, JP has lived in Luxembourg for over a decade. He has become something of a local celebrity through his satirical news blog, wurst.lu, through which he shares is rather sardonic views of life in the Duchy.

We talk about the Wurst, of course, but also news in Luxembourg more broadly, what brought him to the Duchy, neighbours who don’t say Moien, and much more.

Hello all,

We are hard at work bringing you the first season of the podcast, but there is a while to go yet. We are still recording interviews, and we are still (and always) looking for people to talk to. If you know anyone who might have a story to share, or if you do yourself, please do feel free to drop us a line. In the meanwhile, you can listen to the very first little trailer of the podcast above. There will be lots more to listen to in due time, so do stay tuned.

Best,
