Iowa Citizen Diplomacy and Ambassador Dan Mozena

We start the program with a conversation with Dan Mozena, member of the United States Foreign Service, currently U.S. Ambassador to Bangladesh – a post he has held since November of last year. Mozena was born and raised on his family’s dairy farm in northeast Iowa near Dubuque.  He graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in political science and history. Dan Mozena has served in many other countries –in Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Pakistan, and Angola.  Later, what is it about Iowa that has spawned so many U.S. Ambassadors?  We look at the tradition of citizen diplomacy and engagement.
