This is the second episode of Small Town Expats. We’ll be laying the groundwork for the rest of the series in this episode, drawing on our experiences in a variety of urban centers to explain what a city is (at least as we describe it).

  1. What counts as a city?
    1. Large absolute number of people
    2. Density of people
  2. Why move to a city?
    1. The benefits of density
    2. There are more, and more kinds, of people (for friendship, love, or whatever)
    3. There are more, and more kinds, of jobs!
    4. Colleges and schools near or in cities have better networking opportunities
  3. Our experiences
    1. Daniel – grew up on a farm, went to Harvard College in Cambridge, MA, has lived around Boston
    2. Andrew – grew up in a small town, went to Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, has lived around Cincinnati
