Thaddeus Russell Interviews Danny Sjursen

by | Aug 18, 2020

Below is a link to my latest appearance on the Unregistered podcast with host Thaddeus Russell:
Check out my particularly interesting conversation with Thad, a great historian, former Columbia professor, and author of A Renegade History of the U.S.
From the show notes: The ongoing U.S. wars are as far from the news as ever, which is why I brought combat veteran and antiwar journalist Danny Sjursen onto the show. We discussed his road from a working-class Staten Island family of right-wing cops and firefighters to West Point and then leading scout platoons with Armored Cavalry regiments in neighborhoods across Baghdad and in the especially volatile Kandahar Valley in Afghanistan.
