Guest Name(s): Mark Slaughter, Jake Zweig
Brandon is back from Eastern Europe, and discusses the situation on the ground in Ukraine and the Obama administration’s lack of leadership on the conflict. Brandon also gives his thoughts on the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
We also talk about Jack Murphy’s post Why The White House Hasn’t Released Photos Of Osama bin Laden’s Corpse. This post has been the source of a ton of controversy throughout the media in the past week. We also get into your e-mails.
Our first guest is a favorite of the podcast, former Navy SEAL Jake Zweig from Dude You’re Screwed and Top Shot. We talk about his experience at the premiere of Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story at South By Southwest, the documentary by CNN Films revolving around transgender former SEAL Kristin Beck, who served as Christopher Beck. Jake also gets into what else he’s up to, and his take on Flight 370.
We wrap up with Mark Slaughter of the band Slaughter. who many of you know from their hits which include “Up All Night” and “Fly to the Angels.” Mark’s newest song though is Never Givin Up, available now on iTunes and Amazon.com. Part of the proceeds from the song’s sales will go to benefit The Red Circle Foundation. We get into how the connection was made, Mark’s support for the military over the years, and what inspired the song.
Mark will also be doing a video for the song and had a suggestion which we are entirely on board with: any of our listeners downrange who want to be a part of this video, send over any photos or footage holding up signs reading Never Givin Up or #NeverGivinUp, and Mark will consider using them for the video, because that’s who this song is all about – the American war fighter and the wounded warrior in particular. Send those over, along with any of the usual questions and e-mails to [email protected]
