Many of you may know Sean Parnell from his first best-selling book, "Outlaw Platoon." That book details Sean's time in Afghanistan commanding the Army's 10th Mountain Division, and we get into some excellent stories about the brave men he served with as Sean joins us in studio for this hour. We talk about the disconnect between some of the leadership of the Army that is stationed in Bagram Air Base not seeing the level of combat as the boots on the ground experiencing the fight first hand....

9/5/2018

It's hard to believe that we're already in September of this year, but as a I reflect on 2018 thus far, we've had some incredible guests on this podcast. When it comes to spec ops guys in the Army, we've had a wide array. So on this episode, I spotlight several of those guys from previous episodes in 2018. We start off with Nate Boyer. Nate's name is back in the news heavily with the recent signing of Colin Kaepernick to Nike, so we revisit Nate's open letter to Colin, followed by an...

Always a wide array of topics when former Marine and writer Alex Hollings joins the show, and you won't be disappointed by Episode 383. On here we discuss information operations, into how propaganda and urban legend can become cited as fact. We get into Europe, Asia, and The U.S. at length, as well as conflict in the Middle East.

Luke Ryan is back on SOFREP Radio, and earlier this month he released a new science fiction book titled, "The First Marauder." It will be the first in a trilogy from the former Army Ranger. If you're a fan of shows like "The Walking Dead," or books and movies like "World War Z," it fits in with that same end of the world genre, but with Luke's personal take drawing from his own real life experiences that you'll hear him discuss on here. Luke has a love for creating new fictional universes...

Kurt Troter served as a Marine, and later went on to volunteer fighting with the Peshmerga in Kurdistan. He's a favorite of the show, and today I get him on to discuss two of his most recent articles.

Ep. 379 - L. Christian Bussler (USMC)

8/17/2018
More
Every job in the military has it's negatives, but even with the high risk involved, many civilians look back on their lives wishing they'd served their country in some capacity. They often glamorize titles like Sniper or Medic, but I don't think anyone would envy the title of Mortuary Affairs Marine. However, that is the job that was given to L. Christian Bussler, and many of the horrors serving in that position followed him after his military career, leading him to drink, and desiring a...

Ep. 378 - Royce Gracie

8/15/2018

It would be a fair statement that there is no name more synonymous with mixed martial arts than Royce Gracie, and no family with the impact on the sport than the Gracie family. The Gracie family created Brazilian jiu-jitsu, were integral in starting the competition among different forms of self-defense now known as mixed martial arts, and Royce fought in all of the early major UFC events. The Gracie's continues to introduce fighters to the sport, now including a 4th generation member of the...

Ep. 375 - Metal Talk with Shawn the Butcher & Pat McNamara

8/3/2018

The last time Pat McNamara was on the show, he gave the most passionate review of his experience seeing Judas Priest play NYCB Live/Nassau Coliseum. Ever since than, I knew we had to get the former Army operator and current shooting instructor back on to talk metal a little more in-depth. Well, who better to bring on for that discussion than my friend Shawn the Butcher? Shawn's the voice of Ozzy's Boneyard, and a host on Liquid Metal, both on Sirius XM Radio. I got him to walk over from...

Charles "Sam" Faddis is a former CIA operations officer and national security commentator with extensive experience on the ground in the Near East and South Asia. He's also one of the guys you'll see on the intelligence edition of Inside the Team Room which we're currently rolling out in segments on The Spec Ops Channel. Since Sam has written for the site, but hasn't been on the podcast, I figured no better time than now to have him on. On this episode we get into some of the recent...

Ep. 372 - Revisiting Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-370

7/25/2018
More
Back in March of 2014, Sean Spoonts wrote an excellent article for SOFREP that gained a great deal of traction titled, "Alright, Goodnight - Does Malaysia Want to Know What Happened to Flight MH-370?" As some of you may remember, a great deal of conspiracy theory immediately surrounded what happened to that infamous flight, and it has not gone away due to the lack of any sufficient evidence that we can draw much of a conclusion from. For example, Fox News contributor and former Air Force...

We always keep a versatile list of spec ops guests, but we actually haven't had a Navy SEAL on the program in quite a few months. So it was a treat to have Jack Carr join us in studio. We actually shot this full episode for Youtube as well, in the new studio, and hope to do this on a regular basis. So please subscribe to the SOFREP channel on there for much more content to come.
