About the show
A show about finding your place...in a place you’d rather not be.
Hey I’m Hannah. I’m from the States, and I live in London. Objectively I know I’m lucky to be here, but if I can be honest...I’m just not feeling it.
I’m not the kind of person to settle for “it’s ok I guess.” So I’m going to be taking my relationship with London to the next level by bringing some new people into the mix. I’ll be asking interesting people to show me the places in London that represent what they love about the city. Hopefully, they can help me figure out what it takes to really live in London...instead of just being an under-funded long term tourist.
I am a podcast junky. While I get great information out of all the shows I listen to Hannah’s work is exceptionally professional. Her editing is excellent and her programs get right to the point to deliver meaningful content while being personable and intelligent. I was excited to see another podcast by Hannah and listened to the trailer immediately. I was not disappointed and eagerly await the first episode.— Apple Podcasts Review
Listened to the sneak peek @hannah_rfh and ready for more! And also excited to see how many of these I visited on my recent 3 week grad museum and cultural heritage tour of London! And I guess I need to book my return trip already to get to whatever I haven't done yet.— Miryam G.
I listened to the sneak peak this morning and I loved it! I can’t wait to see what comes out of this podcast.— Katey L.
