Joining us on the show for the first time is Scott Mann, a Green Beret and author of the book “Game Changers: Going Local to Defeat Violent Extremists.” In the book, Scott discusses his solution to Islamic extremism based on his own experience. His focus is on using the village stability program implemented by Special Forces during Vietnam. This book serves as not just another critique of current foreign policy in the war on terror, but gives tangible ideas that have been historically effective in fighting this very real threat.

Brandon and I also discuss some current events, and we thank all of you for your heartfelt comments and feedback to the 9/11 special we released last week. Keep an eye out here at and also at for some great content in the works.
