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.
This week, Tiffany’s son Aurelio starts first grade! What is Italian elementary school like and how is it different from elementary school in the US? Will native English-speaking Aurelio have to study English as a second language? What about religion? How much homework is assigned? Do they have to go to school on Saturday? And what’s up with those blue smocks all the kids wear? Tiffany explains it all on this mini-episode.
