  • This week’s podcast was recorded in July 2017 with Kurdish fighter Joanna Palani. Joanna is currently in prison in Denmark due to their laws against Danish citizens traveling to Syria to fight. Joanna’s family is from the western region of Iran. She was born in a U.N refugee camp in the desert of Ramadi, Iraq. 


    Growing up there were sections of the road her brother and his peers traversed en route to school that was littered with IED’s. During a commute to school, he was killed by a roadside bomb. Eventually, her immediate family moved to Denmark where she spent several years living before dropping out of college to go join the uprising in Syria. If you want to hear from a woman on the ground this is a must listen.

  • GRP 128-The 20 Year Journey of a Navy SEAL Sniper: Jack Carr

    On for this week’s podcast is former Navy SEAL Officer turned author Jack Carr. He led special operations teams as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander. Over his 20 years in Naval Special Warfare he transitioned from an enlisted SEAL sniper specializing in communications and intelligence, to a junior officer leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was on a pre 9/11 training deployment on Guam when the Twin Towers were hit. His team immediately deployed to the middle east to take over ship take down operations against Saddam Hussein from SEAL Team 3 who rotated into Afghanistan.

    Jack has written a fictional novel called “The Terminal List” and has a second book on the way called “True Believer”. Enjoy.
