Joining us this episode is freelance journalist Benedetta Argentieri. She is from Italy and has been reporting on wars and foreign affairs for major media outlets such as Reuters. Her newest piece was even picked up by The New York Times, titled From Brides to Battlefield, Women Taking Up New Roles with Islamic State. She discusses the role of females in combat being used by ISIS.

Jack Murphy and I discuss reader emails (send them to [email protected]). We touch on PTS therapy through sports, and even the controversial topic of Jade Helm. Jack gets into some of the history behind the military doing a public show of force during major events and the reasoning behind it.

We appreciate the continued support for the show and the site, and urge you to join us for our next episode – it will definitely be our most explosive interview to date.
