The NYLESA Podcast


This Podcast is an initiative of NYLESA - New York Local Expatriate Spouse Association, to support its members and UN spouses living in New York. Through different episodes, the show will cover different topics such as things to do when you first arrive in New York, interviews with experts concerning taxes and banking, or work permits, or informal chats when the hosts discuss subject matter that might be burdens or concerns of fellow expat-spouses, both topical and not easy to talk about.
