We are Hanson and Izzy, two Chinese expats living in Berlin, possibly the best city in the world with its rich history, culture, and amazing people. We are a long way from home and decided to start our new life here. Why?
Growing up in China, we have chosen certain ways for success in a society that values conformity. But as we start to experience more in the world, we began to realize that identity is a choice, that the patterns for success we have chosen as children could serve us no longer, that we are desperate to adopt a new dream and a new strategy.
This weekly podcast is our attempt to become the people that we are meant to become: open, curious, fully alive. It's a journey to discover some answers to our burning questions, a way to process our past, a lens to understand our present, and a compass to our future.
Thank you for joining us on this journey!
