In this episode we talk with Hannah Jones about her move to Indianapolis, and how her transition from a small town was apparent in the adjustments she made to her new culture and workplace.

  1. Hannah possesses an undergraduate and graduate degree from Indiana University, and currently works in downtown Indianapolis in graphic design.
  2. We discuss how people from small towns and cities aren’t that different at a base level, and how their environments incentivize different behaviors apparent in both places (or, how all God’s children are terrible).
  3. Hannah’s takeaway points for moving to a city are related to cultural adjustment:
    • Be patient–you’ll be a fish out of water at first, but continuing to deliberately meet new people will eventually generate a new network of friends and contacts.
    • People in the city are stereotyped as being cold or unfriendly, but this isn’t true.
    • Mean mugging (or: weaponizing RBF for fun and profit).

Send us any questions, comments, or suggestions that you have, either for Hannah or us! You can email us at contact@smalltownexpats.com or here.
