Category: The Brexit Brits Abroad Podcast!
Our fortnightly Brexit Brits Abroad podcast raises awareness of the key issues facing Britons living elsewhere in Europe as the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union. It answers questions about who the British living and working in Europe are. It highlights what led to their migration. And it considers the implications of Brexit for their everyday lives. Keeping a finger on the pulse of the negotiations, the series responds to issues as they unfold, providing up-to-date information and expert advice.
It is hosted by Dr. Michaela Benson and produced by Emma Houlton at Art of Podcast.
