It’s 4th of July week! And what could be more American than sharing an immigrant’s journey to the United States? Simon Lomax is an Australian ex-pat, a recovering journalist, and, most importantly, a U.S. Citizen. In this week’s episode, we talk about his career as a journalist in Brisbane, Australia, what brought him to the United States, working as a reporter in the Deep South, and, notably, the process of becoming a fully naturalized U.S. citizen. Simon likes to tell me he frequently gives pep talks to Americans about being American, and this is a perfect way to celebrate our nation’s birthday.
