300: Living Internationally: Lessons From 300 Episodes

300 episodes—I truly can’t believe it!  In many ways, it feels like yesterday when I recorded the first episode of the Expat Money Show. At the same time, my life and this company have changed drastically since that day. 

Today, I decided to invite my good friend and colleague Marc Clair—who has known me for nearly as long as I have been doing this show—to flip things around, act as my co-host this week, and interview me about how Expat Money and my own life have evolved over the 300 episodes of this podcast.




  • Take a peek behind the scenes and see how Expat Money isn’t just a one-man band with me in an office doing everything – I’ve now got a staff of close to 30, including today’s co-host. 
  • Listen to fill in the gap from my often-discussed early childhood & leaving Canada as a teenager to 17 years later when I started Expat Money. 
  • Where did the idea for Expat Money come from? Discover why I decided to combine my hobbies and interests and launch the Expat Money Show.
  • Uncover a simple truth about content creation: your content is going to suck flat-out when you start (and why you should embrace that!)
  • Why does my newsletter come from MikkelThorup.com and not ExpatMoney.com? I always get asked this, and there is a story behind it…
  • Find out which of my early podcast guests became a mentor and a crucial part of my own growth – a name many listeners will recognize!
  • Learn why I am anti-Malthusian when it comes to children—I recommend having as many children as possible! 
  • Tune in to hear Marc and I discuss how many people worldwide are realizing they have been lied to and that our governmental and educational systems, by and large, do not have our best interests at heart. 
  • Is imitation really the best form of flattery? Find out about the string of Expat Money posers and straight-up plagiarizers that have sprung up as Exapt Money has gained greater notoriety. 
  • Lastly, for those new around here who may think Expat Money is just a podcast, learn about everything else we do here, from our blog to our newsletter to our free webinars, annual online summit, in-person trips and conferences, and so much more in the years to come.

It still boggles my mind that I’ve done 300 episodes of the Expat Money Show. I had barely been doing the show for more than a year or so when I first met Marc Clair. As one of the longest-running listeners and an accomplished podcaster in his own right, Marc was the perfect person to join me in reflecting on how things have changed in my life and this business over the course of these 300 episodes. 

Whether you’re brand new to the show or you’ve been following me since that first episode, I am truly grateful to have you as a listener. Every single one of you who tunes in to this show helps me accomplish my personal and business goals. I hope that – whether through this program or one of the various other products and services we provide at Expat Money – I can do the same for you on your expat journey. 

I’ll see you next Wednesday for episode 301!
