It's never too late to reach out

It's never too late to reach out
In this episode of The Seoul Patch Podcast, the guys discuss the idea that it's never too late to reach out to those in the past that we used to be close with. When you live an expat lifestyle, it's easy to let friends from high school, college, your 20s, etc. slip from your fingers. Sometimes we grow apart, and sometimes we just put off writing that email. What Ryan discovered during his trip home is that the other party is often wanting to reach out to you, and it just takes one person taking the initiative in order to reestablish contact with that close friend from the past. Let us know if you have experienced this at podcast@theseoulpatch.com.If you like the outro music, check out Ryan's album here:https://thatsspanishfor.bandcamp.com/album/the-moo-moo-choo-chooYou can find The Seoul Patch Podcast listed on Feedspot's 25 Best South Korea Podcasts.

The Great Kakao Meltdown of 2022

The Great Kakao Meltdown of 2022
This week, the guys talk about the fire at the server farm that put Kakao Talk out of commission for a few days. The guys talk about how that disruption affected them and how much they actually do depend on one app during their everyday lives. The guys also briefly discuss Korea's bid to host of the 2036 Olympics. The guys will be well ensconced in their 50s and in Jack's case almost 60s by the time that comes to fruition. Overall, it was a pretty slow news week in Korea, however, the boys tried their best to keep things poppin. Heeding advice from the old adage 'quality, not quantity', The Seoul Patch will be releasing episodes biweekly (or bimonthly, I'm never sure what these actually mean.) We'll be bringing you the latest stories from the news and our lives on the Korean peninsula twice a month from now on. Catch you on the next Seoul Patch!

Shaw English YouTube Channel Creator, Robin Shaw

Shaw English YouTube Channel Creator, Robin Shaw
In this week's episode of The Seoul Patch Podcast, Jack and Kevin sit down with big time YouTube teacher Robin Shaw of YouTube's very own Shaw English. Robin was generous enough to sit down with the guys and tell his story. He talked about how he began his life in Korea as a teacher. Then, he went on to talk about his time as a recruiter, a university professor, and ultimately a YouTube personality. With more than 1.7 million subs, he has one of the largest English language YouTube channels in the world. Of course in typical Jack fashion, he booked Robin on the show and then almost forgot to ask him about his YouTube channel until the interview was over. Talk about burying the lead! As expected, Robin handled the situation gracefully, and ultimately, the guys were left with a really interesting interview that anyone interested in English education will enjoy.You can find The Seoul Patch Podcast listed on Feedspot's 25 Best South Korea Podcasts.
