Tim Crockett met me in Athens, Georgia to tell me about the monumental feat he is undertaking. Tim is going to row, BY HIMSELF, across the Atlantic Ocean. He’ll be miles from the nearest boat or assistance. He’ll have limited supplies. The guy is absolutely crazy in the best way possible. Come along to hear how he’s going to do it.

Two US Army defense contractors met me in a secret location in America to discuss what it’s like to go work for the government on foreign soils. They both work as contractors in stations all over the world and they gave a first hand account of how much waste goes into our imperialism. It was an interesting look into the life of a hired grunt in the middle of a war zone.
