More than 600 episodes in, our SOFREP radio had humble beginnings. We were a ragtag team with a mission to empower the military and veteran community with conversations that matter to us.
So, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, here are the top podcast episodes we published during our first years.

This episode is a “Best Of,” featuring recent clips of Derek G. with Jack Murphy, and Travis Lively talking with Brandon Webb.
We also have a few clips of Brandon guest-hosting The Wilkow Majority for Sirius XM Patriot, including interviews with Dave Fernandez and Mike Ritland. We’re not able to put up the Wilkow show guest-hosted by Brandon, but here’s a taste of it for those who didn’t get to hear it and some great moments from the show to enjoy again for those who have.

Brent Gleeson, a former Navy SEAL, is here to discuss NBC’s Stars Earn Stripes and some of the behind-the-scenes shenanigans on the show. Tune in to hear Brent and Brandon weigh in on the controversial new book “No Easy Day.” The book was written by a former DEVGRU Operator and provided a first-hand account of the UBL raid. If you’ve ever wondered how the release of this book has impacted the SEAL community, then don’t miss this candid discussion.
There are also two big announcements for SOFREP….No Easy Op and the SOFREP World Report. Listen in as BWebb breaks everything down.
EP 78: American Sniper Co-author Scott McEwen Interviewed & SOFREP Marks Its 2nd Year
In this episode, Jack Murphy fills in for Brandon Webb. Most of you, of course, know him by now, but for the new listeners, Jack is a former 75th Army Ranger and Special Forces soldier, and founded the site with Brandon.
EP 256: Exclusive SOFREP Interview with Navy SEAL Team Six UBL Shooter Robert O’Neill
For the first time, Robert O’Neill, best known for Operation Neptune Spear, the raid which resulted in the killing of Osama Bin Laden, sits down with fellow SEAL Brandon Webb for an exclusive in-studio interview. We get into everything with Rob, from his wanting to join the Marines and being swayed by a recruiter to join the SEALs despite a lack of any background in swimming to his involvement in Operation Red Wings, which helped to save Marcus Luttrell as told in “Lone Survivor.” Of course, we also hear the details of what went through Rob’s head before, during, and after the Bin Laden raid, and some of the zen warrior focus one must have in these moments of extreme tension.
EP 105: A Green Beret’s Perspective on ISIS in Iraq
Jack Murphy hosts this episode and gives you a very legit US Army Ranger/Green Beret’s perspective on ISIS in Iraq. Jack trained the indigenous people fighting alongside our troops in Iraq and has covered the terrorist group for quite some time. His insights are based on years of his own experiences.
EP. 246: Pearl Harbor survivor Navy Lt. Jim Downing recalls a day that will live in infamy
We hope everyone celebrating enjoyed their Easter; it was a true honor to be joined in this episode by a survivor of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, Navy Lt. Jim Downing. Jim is the author of “The Other Side of Infamy: My Journey through Pearl Harbor and the World of War,” and though Jim is 103, he’s still able to bring us back to that infamous day on December 7th, 1941. We talk PTSD, keeping America safe and strong, and living past 100 with this true American hero.
EP. 370: Navy SEAL Jack Carr pens his first thriller
We always keep a versatile list of spec ops guests, but we haven’t had a Navy SEAL on the program in quite a few months — it was a treat to have Jack Carr join us in the studio. We shot this full episode for YouTube as well, in the new studio, and we hope to do this regularly.
