About the Show...

Every Monday on The Bittersweet Life, hosts Katy Sewall and Tiffany Parks add a new episode exploring the wonder and frustration of living as an expat or repat. New episodes every Monday.

They have two very different points of view on the bitter dolce vita. Katy Sewall is a newby expat/repat who lived in Rome for a year. Tiffany Parks moved to Rome twelve years ago, intending to stay, though she had no plan.

Whether you’re living overseas, or not — or not yet — join us weekly for unadulterated conversation. Get to know Rome. Laugh at our embarrassments and insights. Most of all, imagine the possibilities for your own life.
