LivAway Cultural Exchange
LivAwayers are a batch of warm-hearted local Chinese and Expats with an international background.
We organize intercultural exchange events on a weekly basis. By working on a specific task shoulder to shoulder, we would like to build real friendships and connections between expats and locals.
This week, Toni also joins Jed and Marshall on the Millennial Nostalgia Berries Podcast to discuss Mulan and other Disney films.
Millennial Nostalgia Berries Podcast is another Shanghai-based podcast, created, produced, and hosted by expats. It is a podcast about American popular culture from the 80s, 90s and early 00s.
