Hello and welcome back to Non/Native, the podcast that shares conversations between female immigrants, expats and interlopers. For this episode – the final installment of this series – I was joined by Alix O'Neill, a journalist who moved to the South of France in 2019, in search of great food, country living, and a slice of the good life.

Alix and her husband are both Irish but had been living in London prior to their move in early 2019. We chatted in June while she was staying with her family in Belfast and working on her memoir, 'The Troubles with Us' which will be published in 2021. We discussed what it's like to give birth in a different country, how Brexit played a part in Alix's decision to move abroad, and the importance of attempting – if not mastering – speaking French.

Thanks to everyone who has listened to this season of Non/Native – keep your eyes peeled for season four, coming later this year.
