Our guest this episode is Justin Carroll, a former MARSOC operator with an impressive background in privacy and security operations with USSOCOM. In the modern age, cybersecurity and evaporating privacy are of huge concern for virtually everyone, and Justin gives us some expert analysis on what people should be aware of. We talk about smartphones, social media, and even the future consequences of modern technology in the hands of a tyrannical government. Justin has written a great deal about these subjects, and his latest co-authored book titled “ComSec” is a must read. Justin has also co-hosted on The Complete Privacy and Security Podcast, but tells us he’s currently more focused on his latest venture, the Across the Peak Podcast. Beyond these pressing topics, you’ll also get a look into Justin’s time with MARSOC. It is rare we get a guest on from the newest member of the US Special Operations community.
We also respond to an email sent to [email protected] regarding China. We give our analysis on President Trump’s recent comments of “falling in love” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, and why we found them to be very disturbing. We also talk about the latest Medal of Honor Recipient Ron Shurer being in the fight for his life battling lung cancer. Friends and family have set up a GoFundMe to help pay these costs for the Green Beret war hero, and we encourage you to give back. With that, we have just added a Facebook page for the podcast at facebook.com/sofrepradio. Be on the lookout for a new website devoted to the show as well as a new app.
