It's October already and our German gardener Erika tells us more about what you can still plant in your garden for winter growth. She also talks about saving your own seeds and how they will grow better the second season.
Today we are looking at frozen pensions from Jim Tilley in Australia, winter fuel payments and voting rights for expats from Brian Cave in France. These topics are of major concern to all expats and we hope you will contact us with your opinions.
On Monday we shall be speaking to Brian Cave of http://pensionersdebout.blogspot.com/ about the lack of representation in the UK for British citizens living abroad. As always, your opinions are highly valued so please do talk to us and send us your questions. You can contact us via the contact link on every page of the Expatsradio.com website.
I don't know about you but I'm quite shocked to hear that payments to pensioners who are also expats may be limited becaue they live abroad. If you are living away and would like to tell us how the rules from the UK government are affecting you we'd be pleased to hear from you.
Today we spoke to Katya Barry of Katyabarry.com who helps expats make the most of their lives abroad. You will be able to hear what she said later today. Kayta will be joining us for regular features to make sure you are well prepared for your new world.
Expatsradio is working hard behind the scenes to bring you not only great programmes but also offers from our sponsors to save you cash.

Hello everyone. We thought it was about time you heard from us here at the studios on Dartmoor. As you will have seen by now, we are adding not only more programmes but also linking in video too. Lots more coming from our usual presenters but also from new countries too. We now reach not only the UK, France and Spain but have extended our listenership into the USA, Switzerland and Holland. We have our sights on many other expat favourite countries and will keep you up to date as we progress.
Thanks to all of you who are coming back to view the new site and listen to our programmes. The comments have been very supportive but there have also been some questions about how things work including where the music has gone. Well, it is in the lifestyle section and now has a player so that if you go onto your computer you can just leave it to play all the music shows. You can also skip one by just rolling down in the player and hitting the next one you'sd like to hear. Keep sending us your questions and we'll keep on making the site better for you to visit and enjoy!
Expatsradio is at it again! We're so happy to have our new site that we thought we'd invite some of our sponsors to offer prizes just for you. We're starting with the chance to win one of three super food hampers, 5 Moon Gardening starter kits and ten CDs of children's nursery rhymes brought up to date in our own studios. We've also got a 1960's compilation CD on offer. More to come so watch out for more information in the competitions section.
Expats radio was started at the end of 2005 as a small test website to see if anybody would actually be interested in talking to us or listening to what we had to say. The answer? A resounding yes! Since then through a number of exciting developments and collaborations we have become even better. Read more
