FS on the Radio

Posted in Foreign Service Life at 10:12 am by graceandpoise

NPR has just launched a new series of reports that focus on life in the Foreign Service, with each individual report focusing on a different aspect of life as an American diplomat. I’ve just listened to the first of them (focusing on security issues), and I think I can safely say it’s a pretty accurate depiction of some of the realities people face in this career. I’m looking forward to hearing what they have to say in the next few reports.

Update: The text version on the web is not as good, but the audio version of the second report is worth listening to (click the “listen” button on the website).  Oddly appropriate for the day all of my belongings get packed up and moved.

    You were right, probably should have skipped the one on security!

    Thanks so much for that link. In spite of being plugged into NPR non-stop, I managed to miss it.
