How a TCK uses his difference to make a difference [The Culture Guy Podcast]

In this episode Christian talks with Tayo Rockson, whom some might label as a poster-child third-culture kid (TCK).

Tayo was born in Nigeria and grew up in several different countries, among them Sweden, Burkina Faso, Vietnam, and the United States. He is the author of “The Ultimate Guide to TCK Living: Understanding The World Around You” and host of the podcast “As told by nomads.

On this episode Tayo shares how he became a Millennial entrepreneur (he runs UYD Media and BrandEDU) and a media professional (he contributes to The Huffington Post, Among Worlds Magazine as well as Global Living Magazine).

During his conversation with The Culture Guy Tayo explains how a near-death experience fired him up to follow his passion and why he and Christian are unlikely to see eye to eye when it comes to football/soccer.
