Imagine living the good life in an exotic location that offers the best of everything: sunshine, beaches, art, culture, architecture, world-class restaurants and entertainment.

Now, imagine living it, along with your spouse, for less than $1,500 a month, all-in.

That’s the appeal of retiring overseas.

That’s what this week’s “Money!” podcast is about. We’re going to talk to Kathleen Peddicord, publisher of Live and Invest Overseas, a publication offering advice to current and potential American expats, about what it’s like retiring overseas and how to do it.

Ever picture yourself in paradise? You’re about to find out how to make that dream come true.

As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit.

Sit back, relax and listen to this week’s “Money!” podcast:

Not familiar with podcasts?

A podcast is basically a radio show you can listen to anytime, either by downloading it to your smartphone or other device, or by listening online.

They’re totally free. They can be any length (ours are typically just under a half-hour), feature any number of people and cover any topic you can possibly think of. You can listen at home, in the car, while jogging or, if you’re like me, when riding your bike.

You can listen to our latest podcasts here or download them to your phone from any number of places, including Apple, Spotify, RadioPublic, Stitcher and RSS.

If you haven’t listened to a podcast yet, give it a try, then subscribe to ours. You’ll be glad you did!
