Expat Life in Panama – IL Interviews Roberto R HernandezThis episode provides a glimpse into my expat life in Panama. It’s an interview of me produced for International Living Magazine. I recorded the conversation as a backup for the interviewer, and decided to feature it here for you. It’s not the typical content for this podcast, but it does speak to the journey of two digital nomads (me and my wife).

I hope you enjoy it!
