About the Host

Nicole Palazzo

The Expat Cast is hosted by Nicole, an American living in Freiburg, Germany. Nicole decided to start the podcast in order to create a community for herself and others feeling similarly stressed but blessed in their life abroad.

Since moving abroad in 2017, Nicole has leaned in to many aspects of German life. She visits multiple bakeries per week, can open a beer bottle with a lighter, and regularly repeats the phrase, "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing" as she bikes to work through sun, rain, or snow.

She's a librarian by day and a podcaster by night. Her favorite activities include asking strangers slightly invasive questions about their personal lives and frolicking about in nature, be that via hiking, running, traveling, or taking a scenic nap.
