I know...I know...we also cringe at the term "trailing spouse"
but when titling podcasts...what's an equally and understood
term? Can we start making "traveling partner" a thing?
Or "freelance partner"? Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org

recently became a naturalized American, he loves a spirited
geopolitical discussion or a museum on any topic but misses his
back home dearly. Luke met his wife while working in Afghanistan
and has traveled to
another 40 countries. Without any formal social accreditations
besides being the President

his cross-cultural awareness
and aptitude. At the same time, as someone who genuinely believes
in the mission of American
diplomacy and who appreciates living abroad in challenging
environments, he is keen to share
his self-deprecating experiences that might benefit others.
