We launched The Bittersweet Life in 2014 and are now on our eighth season. In our vast archive of over 400 episodes and mini-episodes, we cover everything from moving abroad and expat life, to portraits of Rome and travel adventures, from interviews with famous authors and other notable guests to spontaneous discussions of life’s questions, big and small.
If you’re new to the show, we recommend you start at the beginning and take the journey with us. You can also browse our entire archive of episodes below, search for something specific, or browse episodes by topic.
A private yacht called the Sea Star, a handful of strangers who would soon be friends, the inland passage to Alaska, and a few whales that like to show off—these are the ingredients in Katy’s first post-pandemic trip.
Although observing humpback whales in the wild has long been a dream of hers, she had no idea how much she would enjoy the actual trip, sailing the tranquil inland waters that stretch the entire length of British Colombia and beyond, making friends with her fellow passengers and learning to live together in such close quarters, having a complete break from all forms of technology in order to truly commune with nature. Here all about it in her own words on this week’s episode.
