What does it mean to be foreign in a globalized world? Join us, a diverse team of curious-minded expats, as we delve into the fast-paced world of Shanghai, and explore what it means to be a laowai (or “foreigner”) in China in this bi-weekly podcast. Through stories from expats, Chinese locals, and everyone in between, we look at the laowai experience from every angle. This season, we explore themes ranging from friendship and dating, to culture and racial dynamics.

We’re a small team of four laowai: you’ll probably be familiar with Hannah and Toni, the voices of the show, while Ali and Averill are quieter presences, working behind the scenes of the podcast.

We’re always looking to welcome open-minded and creative people to our small team. If you’re interested in writing, researching, audio-editing, or anything else, we’d love to hear from you!

If you’d like to get involved, or have something you’d like to share, or simply want to know more about us, please get in touch with us at lookingforlaowai@gmail.com.
