This is the last episode of the first season of Looking for
Laowai! This week we talk about the transient nature of friendships
as an expat in China, how people deal with this, and how they
approach new relationships. Hannah and Toni are joined by friend
and producer Averill, whose departure from Shanghai coincides with
the end of this season. We’re sad to see you go, Averill, but we
wish you the best of luck with the future!
This episode is dedicated to all our friends, new and old,
here and back home. Thank you so much for all you have shared with
us. Thanks also to every one of our wonderful interviewees for your
time and for your golden nuggets of stories. And lastly, thank you
to all our faithful listeners for your continued support and
positive feedback. Looking for Laowai would not exist without you
