Guest: Donald Nieman, PhD, Presidential Historian, Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Binghamton University, State University of New York Fresh off the national President’s Day Holiday and the start of Donald Trump’s second month in office, let’s look at the question of “acting presidential.” A fair amount of criticism lobbed in Trump’s direction during the campaign - and since his inauguration - relates to his unorthodox approach to the presidency: he calls people names on Twitter; he holds rambling press conferences in which he complains at length about how the media is covering him; he’s turned his nose up at Camp David in favor of retreating to his ritzy private club in Florida every weekend since he took office. Is it all just a matter of individual style? Or might President Trump learn from the way some of his predecessors behaved in office? Read Donald Nieman's article from Newsweek here.

An American Family's Ex-Pat Life in India

18 MINS

Guest: Paul Frost, Foreign Commercial Service Officer, US Department of Commerce, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Tracie Frost, Student of Accounting, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton It’s a rare American family that has the opportunity to uproot and move overseas to live and work. It’s an even rarer family that accepts a long-term post to a place unlike home in every imaginable way. India was that place for Paul and Tracie Frost who had never lived abroad as a family before Paul left his banking job in North Carolina to join the foreign commercial service and took an assignment in New Delhi. Their four kids were 2, 6, 9 and 12 years of age. Paul and Tracie Frost have just returned from two and a half years living and working with their family in India and are now living in Florida.
