After being raised in a military family, he became a combat paratrooper and went on to serve and work in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Bosnia, Panama, St. Criox, Nigeria, and Korea.It was while working as a Special Agent for the U.S. State Department in Korea as part of a visa/passport fraud detection unit that he came across a connection between many of the people they were investigating – just 5 IP addresses.

He had found the cause that would drive his work going forward.Mary Kate and John take this opportunity to discuss:• The surprise at finding himself on humanitarian missions while in the Army• Why transitioning out of the military can create such a feeling of insecurity and instability for Veterans• Just how pervasive and close to home the problem of human trafficking is todayAdditional Links & Resources:Learn more about Veteran Voices here: https://supplychainnow.com/program/veteran-voicesSubscribe to Veteran Voices and other Supply Chain Now programs here: https://supplychainnow.com/subscribeLearn more about Vets2Industry: https://vets2industry.org/This episode was hosted by Mary Kate Soliva.

Lauren Groff in Conversation with John Freeman

Books & Ideas Audio

Of all the attributes Lauren Groff possesses, range is surely one of them. Her “all-conquering” 2015 novel, Fates and Furies, was a literary masterpiece about a modern day marriage, creativity, and perception. Florida brought storms, snakes, and sinkholes to lurk at the edges of everyday life in strange, affecting stories. And her latest work, Matrix, a finalist for the 2021 National Book Award, explores the raptures and hardships of life in a 12th century convent, as told by seventeen-year-old Marie de France. USA Today called it "a relentless exhibition of Groff’s freakish talent." Hear from this fascinating mind—and one of our finest writers today—in a sold out conversation with author, poet, and editor John Freeman from the 2021 Vancouver Writers Fest.
