Ep. 283 - Vasilis Chronopoulos (Greek SOF)

It’s been over 100 episodes since we’ve had our Greek SOF veteran writer Vasilis A.K.A. Bill on. Coincidentally, the last time we covered Turkey shooting down a Russian plane, and we start this episode off with the news of Turkey buying the S-400 missile system from Russia in a deal for nearly $2 billion. From there we get the Greek perspective on news that Vasilis has been covering, including the rise of self-described “anti-fascist” groups in America which Europe has seen the spread of for...

Ep. 282 - National Preparedness Month

Yes, National Preparedness Month is in fact a thing, and although there certainly are an abundance of national holidays and months where we recognize all sorts of things in America, it actually makes perfect sense to get the public on board with being prepared for the month of September. Between commemorating the anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took place on 9/11/01, and the current ongoing national disasters happening right now, it is very important to drive home the message of...

Ep. 281 - A Photographer Among Forces Fighting ISIS

In studio with us is Joey L., you may have read his photo essay “Welcome to Raqqa” here a few months back, which got a lot of love from readers of the site. Joey is a professional portrait photographer who’s done a lot of his own work shooting the action happening in Syria, and getting to know those on the ground fighting. You’ve probably even seen some great shots he’s taken of Jack Murphy when he’s been over there. What we get into specifically though, is Joey’s documentary “Born From...

Ep. 280 - Benedetta Argentieri

Back on SOFREP Radio is journalist/filmmaker (and as many of you may know, fiancé of Jack Murphy) Benedetta “Benni” Argentieri. Benni has contributed her work to some of the most well-known news agencies and publications ranging from Reuters to Al Jazeera, and most recently wrote a piece on female soldiers in Iraq and Syria for The Telegraph (titled "Meet the female soldiers in Syria and Iraq fighting for gender equality as much as freedom.") It’s always a kick having Jack and Benni in...

Ep. 279 - Q&A w/ editor-in-chief Jack Murphy

With our growing audience as we stream live on Facebook and YouTube for select in studio episodes, Jack Murphy and I decided to give you the listeners a chance to interact with us, and ask any questions you had for the editor-in-chief on the spot. We also get into the guilty verdict on a very disturbing case involving VA physician’s assistant Mark Wisner, who was accused of sexual molestation by male veterans using the Dwight D. Eisenhower VA Medical Facility in Leavenworth, Kansas. Jack...

Ep. 278 - Jim West recaps Mayweather VS McGregor

Many of us enjoyed watching Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Conor McGregor, the competitiveness was a surprise to a lot of the viewing audience, and who better to give a recap of what went down than Special Forces decorated veteran Jim West? After all, Jim has trained boxers and some of the early UFC fighters like Steven “3D” Graham. As a student of boxing and MMA, Jim gives his take as we sit down with Jason Delgado, and Jim tells us why he wasn’t at all surprised by the result. We get into the...

Ep. 277 - Chris Fussell

One thing that can be learned working with someone as well-respected as General Stanley McChrystal would without question be great leadership ability. That’s something that Chris Fussell has learned as a partner of The McChrystal Group, heading their Leadership Institute, as well as from his experience prior to that as a Navy SEAL with 15 years of service under his belt. It was an honor having Chris join Jason Delgado and myself in studio for this episode as we discuss his time in the...

Ep. 276 - Anderson Harp

Jason Delgado is with me, and in studio this episode we have 30-year Marine Corps veteran and military fiction author Anderson Harp. Kicking off this episode however, we get an update from Derek Gannon who attended the recent protests in Dallas to cover the situation involving Antifa, BLM, as well as pro-Trump supporters. There was a surprising clash that went down between what many would think would be ally groups, and you can read about that in the article, “ANTIFA, unwelcome by...

Ep. 275 - Ami Toben

Joining Jason Delgado and myself in studio is Ami Toben, author of “Surveillance Zone: The Hidden World of Corporate Surveillance Detection & Covert Special Operations.” Ami grew up on a kibbutz in Israel, and got conscripted into the IDF. He moved on from there he has been working in private sector security, in particular for the tech industry in the Silicon Valley region. He currently does security work for his company HighCom Security Services. Ami’s line of work is considerably...

Ep. 274 - Kristin Beck

Clocking in at well over two hours of unfiltered talk, this very well may be the longest episode of SOFREP Radio ever recorded (any members care to fact-check me on that?) Well, with the horrifying events that took place in Charlottesville this past weekend, having Kristin Beck back on the show for the first time in years, and Jason Delgado making an unplanned in studio appearance, the time really flew by. Derek Gannon hosts this episode, and we start off with Frumentarius to react to what...

Ep. 273 - CJ Ramone (USMC)

CJ Ramone of the Ramones comes on this episode, former Marine (yes, the bassist for arguably the most iconic punk band who was with them since 1989 was in fact a Marine.) CJ talks about touring the globe the past few years, hitting countries like Cuba and Argentina in support of his solo work (his latest of which is the “American Beauty” album that came out earlier this year, go pick it up!) Then him and Brandon get into some of the political polarization going on in the punk rock...

Ep. 272 - Lou Moreira

Very special guest this episode, Lou Moreira joins us, who is training to be on the 2018 U.S. Olympic bobsled team. Lou has a very interesting background, not only serving as a combat vet with the 82nd Airborne, but he was also an All-American hurdler and NPC‘s 2014 Mr. Texas, so to call Lou a versatile athlete is an understatement. We get into different techniques that helped Lou to reach his potential as an athlete, his training regimen, diet, and more. Lou pursuing this goal has been a...

Ep. 271 - BK, Air Force PJ

Between BK‘s weekly News Roundup articles and his own News Roundup podcasts, it’s safe to say he’s grown a cult following of readers and listeners who enjoy his no-holds barred take on the news that doesn’t ever cater to the culture of political correctness. This appearance on SOFREP Radio is no different as we get into everything from healthcare to the transgender issue, as well as some of the pop culture related news of the week. B.K. also touches on some of the training needed to become...

Ep. 270 - Coriolanus attends DEFCON

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our favorite hacker and all-source intelligence analyst. Since the people demanded, we have some more Coriolanus! Well, no better time to bring him on after him attending DEFCON and Black Hat in Las Vegas this past weekend. You’ll hear all about what it’s like to be a part of a conference attended by some world-famous hackers, and although what got the most media attention from the weekend was the voting machine hacks that took place, there was a...

Ep. 269 - Danielle Bizier

Danielle Bizier is a former intelligence specialist and instructor who’s worked in the Defense Intelligence Agency, and she joins us in studio as Jack Murphy hosts this informative, entertaining, and at times laugh-out-loud hilarious episode of SOFREP Radio. Danielle personally worked in intelligence with Edward Snowden, which she wrote an article for us at on. She even made a recommendation for him long before any of us heard that name. Find out what her experience was working...

Ep. 268 - Colonel Mark Boyatt

Joining us for the first time on the program is Colonel Mark Boyatt, the highly respected former Commander of 3rd Special Forces Group. Mark is the author of “Special Forces: A Unique Asset,” a book that Jack Murphy reviewed last year and was extremely impressed by. You’ll see why that is once you hear Colonel Boyatt’s strategies for fighting terrorism, and also nation building. He makes a great case as he lays out failed strategies of the past, criticizes the U.S.’s history of arming the...

Ep. 267 - The Power of Thought: James Altucher

This episode we’re switching things up, and doing something a little different than usual. If you’re wondering how so, you may have heard Brandon Webb in recent weeks talk about launching an all new podcast called “The Power of Thought,” and may have even seen the livestream we did Thursday on Facebook and YouTube with entrepreneur and best-selling author James Altucher. Well, this is that show in its entirety to give you a feel for what will be over on that channel which will include new...

Ep. 265 - Jim West

Green Beret and martial arts expert James “Smokey” West is no doubt a favorite of the show, and when we have him in studio with Jack Murphy, it’s always a real treat. There’s no shortage of things we get into during this discussion that extends over an hour, and we start where left off last episode talking secretive Special Forces groups Det A and Det K. Jim West has some history in his own family with these practically unknown groups that he gets into. From there the conversation takes a...

Ep. 264 - Bob Charest, Detachment A

It’s often said on this podcast that we try to strike a balance between having on A-list guests with major names in the community, and bringing on guys with incredible stories that we’ve tracked down and that you’ve almost certainly never heard from before. Bob Charest most definitely fits that second category, and his time in Detachment A is fascinating. Up until very recently, there was nearly no information to be found on the Special Forces unit in Cold War Germany comprised of American...

Ep. 263 - John Stryker Meyer

Jack Murphy is back in studio, and it’s been nearly a hundred episodes since we’ve heard from our MACV-SOG writer John Stryker Meyer. There is no shortage of things to talk about with John. For one, he has an article out detailing how the current administration has completely ignored the POW/MIA issue and in particular is yet to name a director for the DPAA (Defense Prisoner of War/Missing in Action Accounting Agency) after a year. There are still 1,607 unaccounted for POW/MIAs from the...
