Guest Name(s): Scott Kelly, Derek Gannon
Brandon Webb is in studio this show along with a very special guest, Scott Kelly. We start off first though with SOFREP writer Derek Gannon giving a very important update on the recent events in Niger resulting in the tragic death of three U.S. Green Berets. Although U.S. presence in Africa comes as some sort of shock to much of the mainstream media, readers of SOFREP have seen our writers including Derek cover the region for years. Brandon also gives his reaction the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
We then bring on Scott Kelly, retired Navy Captain and NASA astronaut, who has an incredible memoir coming out on October 17th entitled “Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery.” Kelly set a new record being in space for 520 days in 2015. We ask Scott about his origins, privatization of space exploration, and even have some fun after seeing his response on Twitter to rapper B.O.B. currently setting up a GoFundMe to somehow prove that the earth is flat… good luck with that. Pre-order his book, you will not be disappointed! Part 2 of this interview will be posted next week on Brandon’s The Power of Thought podcast, so be sure to check that out when it drops, and you can find that in the Education category of Apple Podcasts.
