“The combined efforts of the NSA, CIA and NCIS could not stop true love.”

Amanda Matti, former NSA analyst in Iraq and the author of her amazing true life story, “A Foreign Affair,” joins the Mean to cover it all!

“When 22-year-old US Navy Intelligence Analyst Amanda Matti deploys to Baghdad, Iraq in the summer of 2005, she does her best to prepare mentally and physically to face the horrors of war. What she isn’t prepared for is to fall in love…with someone on the ‘ther side.’ For Amanda and her Iraqi translator Fahdi, it’s love at first sight. While serving together near the front lines of the Iraq War, the two realize their connection transcends cultures, countries and politics. Amanda knows she may have to choose between Fahdi and her career in the military, but actually finds herself at the center of an international criminal investigation spearheaded by a trifecta of US government agencies – the NSA, CIA and NCIS.”

“I’ve always been magnetically drawn to innovative ideas and the people who turn them into realities. That intrigue was the genesis of ‘The Golden Mean.’ I hope you'll tune in here for one-on-one interviews with a broad spectrum of dynamic personalities and interesting thinkers. Give us a listen!”
