This week on SOFREP Radio we welcome SOFREP Editor in Chief Jacob Sotak.

Jacob is a U.S. Army veteran who served in Afghanistan in the early 2000’s as part of a Civil Affairs team. After his service, which included a stint at the Presidio of Monterey Defense Language Institute where he studied Arabic, Jacob relocated to New York City. In New York he worked for the New York Times and several other companies before joining forces with SOFREP as Editor in Chief.

In this sit down with Jacob, we hear some stories from OEF and how he came to lead the team at SOFREP. Moreover, we get a glimpse at where SOFREP is headed and how the publication will refresh itself in the new year.

Be sure to tune in as we put Jacob on the hot seat!
