There's nothing like a complete political meltdown in your home country to make you feel utterly alone in your adopted one.

Tiffany opens up about her feelings of isolation in the wake of the Kavanaugh debacle raging across the pond. When you are consumed for weeks on end with a political story that no one in your day-to-day life understands, it's easy to feel cut off.

Sometimes all you want to do is walk into your office and commiserate with your colleagues about the latest insane thing that has happened in the news, but life is a bit more complicated when you're an expat.

And what happens when things start to look so bleak back home that you're not sure you want to go back there...maybe ever?


Mentioned on the show:

Episode 137: Election – Katy and Tiffany react in real time to the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Episode 150: Resist – An interview with Indivisible's Ezra Levin.
