We interview ‘Jay,’ a Green Beret, for the first episode of Half Percent Podcast. In a fascinating, wide ranging discussion, Jay takes us from West Point to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Kyrgyzstan. Along the way, Jay digs into the mindset and psychology of what it takes to become a Green Beret, dealing with the stress of combat while carrying out orders effectively and accomplishing the task at hand.

The Half Percent Podcast is a show that delves into the lives of the men and women who choose a career in the armed forces. About one half percent of the population of the United States is active duty military at any given time. Each show is an interview with a member of the military, whether active duty, reserve, or veteran. We dig into the background, motivation, personality, and job (and some crazy stories along the way) of an individual who has chosen to serve in one of the branches of the armed forces.

    I’m thrilled to have @nickp join the Ricochet Audio Network with this amazing podcast. He has done six episodes so far, so we will be rolling them out over the next few days and then we’ll settle into his once a week schedule.
