Hi old ChinesePod friends!

I wanted to share the new podcast I'm doing... kind of like the Dear Amber of New York City.  It's called 'NYx2'.  Basically it chronicles the funny things about life as a foreigner (Canadian!) in NYC.

Just finished our 3rd episode on minty run-ins with NYC airport security guards, a bathroom dilemma, and Purim, (aging) hipster-style. Also, some dialect lessons and Colt 45 from the Queen of Queens, and subway life, on location in Grand Central Station.

Please come listen and 'like' us on Facebook if you like:!/NYxTwo

Would love to see you all again there!

Looking forward to having a listen Amber. Your old Dear Amber podcast provided me with some great insights, so I'm sure your new show won't disappoint.

"Basically it chronicles the funny things about life as a foreigner (Canadian!) in NYC."

Another funny thing: It wasn't that long ago that we Canadians weren't considered foreigners in the U.S.A. :)

Nah, you've always been foreigners. We even filmed one of our great war epics about brave American resistance to Canadian aggression. ;)

Heh heh, that Bud Boomer was quite a guy. We burn him in effigy every 1st of July. Seriously, that scene where they have to translate the anti-Canadian slogans to French--Magnifique!!

I love your Dear Amber show. I use it as my listening materials. It's funny and interesting to listen foreigners talking about Chinese culture.
