Episode Info: Third Culture Kids refers to people who have spent a significant part of their childhood living in cultures other than that of their passport country. They often find it challenging to define their own culture, or even to decide where in the world they belong. In this episode, Kathleen talks about being a TCK born into a globe-hopping family, growing up on five different continents, and struggling to share her story with those in her passport country who simply find it difficult to relate to her experiences. Later, as an adult, she decided to write about her richly diverse life of global adjustment in her book, Expat Alien. Marcia and Lisle reflect on their own experiences with cultural adjustment and reverse culture shock.
