About the AmeriNZ Podcast

The AmeriNZ Podcast is my personal journal podcast. I posted the first episode on March 28, 2007.

My name is Arthur Schenck, and I’m a gay American-born New Zealander. I moved here in 1995 to be with my partner, Nigel, who is a New Zealander. I was born and raised in Illinois, and lived in Chicago before moving to New Zealand.

I talk about my life, about being an expat, about New Zealand and some of the things I see looking at America from overseas. Politics, history, culture, life in New Zealand, and being an expat are the main subject areas I cover. Being gay also figures into all that, but it’s not my main focus.

Guests on the AmeriNZ Podcast have included other podcasters, bloggers, friends, and expats of various kinds—a married American couple in Wellington, an American guy who lives with his Kiwi wife and son in Auckland, and a gay Kiwi guy who lives overseas with his American partner. A special guest was Kiwi singer-songwriter Monique Rhodes (Episode 91), who I found through social media.

Many episodes have been inspired by questions or requests from listeners, and I’m always willing to explore the topics that listeners are interested in.

The AmeriNZ Podcast is released periodically, and not on a set schedule. I also post videos to the AmeriNZ YouTube Channel, which I also share on this site.

To contact me, send an email to me at arthur[at)amerinzpodcast.com, or post a comment on the shownotes for any episode. There’s also the AmeriNZ Facebook Page is for my Blog, Podcast, and Videos.
