“The Long Road Home” with Tom Secker – Ep 36

Read

We have our first t-shirt for sale!!!  Click here to check it out.

Today, I sit down with Tom Secker of spyculture.com to discuss the National Geographic series The Long Road Home.  Here, Tom and I note its lack of discussion on the historical and cultural questions surrounding the massive battle in Sadr City, known by veterans of the battle as Black Sunday, and the military questions I have as a soldier who was fighting against the same Mahdi militia in southern Iraq at the same time.

Thanks again to Tom for chatting with me.  He wrote an amazing piece of analysis with journalist Matthew Alford on the influence of the Pentagon and the CIA in American films and television.  It’s called National Security Cinema: The Shocking New Evidence of Government Control in Hollywood.  Definitely pick up a copy!!  And don’t forget to subscribe to Tom’s podcast, ClandesTime.  He recently did a review on Executive Decision, the Kurt Russell/Steven Seagal film from 1996.
