True story. Several of my podcast guests have been Digital Nomads. Many of them prefer to be called "Citizens of the World".

Interesting content (have listened to several episodes) but it's a painful experience. There is way too much noise underneath the speaker and/or used to "illustrate" the information being presented. Unfortunately, with this episode, I have finally been driven away and will be unsubscribing.
