at the 16:05 mark, he mentions "double pop". you might need to scroll back 1 minute for more context.

i'd appreciate someone explaining this to me in simpler terms.

I think he just means that both foreign holdings will go up in their local currency, and their local currency will go up relative to the USD, so you get a double effect if your foreign investments are not currency hedged.
