The Story Behind Milspouse Matters - Episode 9

By Jen McDonald

In this episode, we're turning the tables and Jen McDonald is being interviewed! Find out more about Jen's story as a military spouse of three decades, which led to her writing a book for other spouses and starting the Milspouse Matters podcast. Lana Simmons, cohost of the Reinventing Midlife podcast, puts Jen on the hot seat.  We'll talk about feeling like a fish out of water as a new military spouse, adapting to the quirks of military culture, all the moves, living overseas, raising military kids, deployments, her family's homeschooling journey, and the second career she's found.  You'll want to tune in to this fun episode, where Lana does her own "quick 5" questions and we talk about that one time Jen met Chris Hemsworth and her brief (and of course, embarrassing) encounter with legendary "Stormin' Norman" General Schwarzkopf.
