Episode 33 - Matt Eversmann - Black Hawk Down, James Patterson and helping our veterans
1:16:33This week The Pack is thankful for American Hero Matt Eversmann (@EversmannMatt on Twitter). The former Army Ranger was featured in several books and films depicting his time in the Military and was the lead protagonist portrayed by Josh Hartnett in the hit "Black Hawk Down". Matt now writes with James Patterson and helps veterans who are struggling to transition to civilian life. First Sergeant (ret) Matt Eversmann personifies the qualities of duty, courage, and selfless service to succeed when ordinary circumstances become extraordinary challenges. On October 3, 1993, Matt was placed in charge of a group of Army Rangers to lead a daytime raid against an eager enemy militia. His inspiring story of survival was immortalized in the epic film, Black Hawk Down, which recounts the harrowing experience. For his actions on the battlefield, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor device. During his remaining time in uniform, he worked at the Army War College, taught at The Johns Hopkins University, and was finally deployed to Iraq where he lived with the Iraqi Army for 15 months during The Surge. He remained on active duty until May of 2008 when he retired after 20 years of service. His frustration with the typical hiring process for veterans fueled his desire to help others avoid the “veterans predicament,” where great servicemen and women are overlooked because of a broken hiring system. Since his retirement from active duty, Matt has worked in several industries in mid-level to senior-level positions. He was an operations officer in healthcare, an executive director in a non-profit, and a VP of leadership development for a data management company. Eversmann Advisory is a veteran-owned and operated organization with a diverse range of strategic partners who develop employment initiatives and strategically embed talent. We train exceptionally talented men and women to be more competitive in the market. Matt is also the co-author of two books with James Patterson yes that James Patterson E.R. Nurses: True Stories from America's Greatest Unsung Heroes They save our lives every day, and we’ve never heard their stories. The life-or-death intensity of working on the front lines, from America’s greatest unsung heroes. Walk-in My Combat Boots: True Stories from America's Bravest Warriors These are the brutally honest stories usually only shared amongst comrades in arms. Here, in the voices of the men and women who’ve fought overseas from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, is a rare eye-opening look into what wearing the uniform, fighting in combat, losing friends, and coming home is really like Matt is featured in the 2008 PBS documentary “Send Me” "Send Me" follows as he returns to combat with the U.S. military in the fight against ISIS and the Taliban. The film provides an insider's look into the lives of active-duty U.S. military personnel stationed in far-flung outposts overseas. But what Former first Sergeant Eversmann is known for and detailed in two books and a movie you may have heard of The Battle of Mogadishu: First-Hand Accounts from the Men of Task Force Ranger with Dan Shilling Day of the Rangers: The Battle of Mogadishu 25 Years On by Leigh Neville, The Movie You May have heard of – Black Hawk Down The story of 160 elite U.S. soldiers who dropped into Mogadishu in October 1993 to capture two top lieutenants of a renegade warlord but found themselves in a desperate battle with a large force of heavily-armed Somalis. https://www.linkedin.com/in/matt-eversmann-a7647b4/ https://eversmannadvisory.com/

1:00:43On this week’s episode, The Pack gets a little weird for Halloween. We are joined by former UK Ministry of Defense Undersecretary in Charge of UFOs, Nick Pope (@nickpopemod on Twitter). Nick Pope ran the British Government’s UFO Project from 1991 to 1994. Among his other duties, he led research on and investigations of UFOs, alien abductions, crop circles, and other strange phenomena. The media called him “The Real Fox Mulder”. His government background and his level-headed views have made him the media, film, and TV industry’s go-to guy when it comes to UFOs, the unexplained, and alien conspiracy theories. Nick Pope has consulted on and helped to promote a number of alien-themed movies, TV shows, and video games. He has hosted, consulted on, and contributed to numerous TV shows, has written six best-selling books, and lectures all around the world. The Pack asks Nick one of the most important questions for mankind: “Are we alone?” We dig into what Nick is allowed to discuss, hear which counties are helping us in the search for alien life, and learn what would be the worst-case scenario should aliens exist... or visit. From crop circles to government admissions, we cover it all. Pour yourself a tall brimming glass of Romulan Brandy, sit back, and enjoy.

Episode 27 - Alan Dershowitz - The case for mandatory vaccines, getting you ”Liberal Card” pulled and did the glove fit?
1:07:26This week the Pack goes outside the world of finance. We are joined by constitutional scholar and Emeritus Professor of Law at Harvard, Alan Dershowitz (@alandersh on Twitter). Alan speaks freely and comfortably about a little bit of everything, his past, his beliefs, current events, past clients, the scourge of woke-ism and cancel-culture, the rough texture and dissonant tone of our times. Alan Dershowitz has long been celebrated for his work in U.S. constitutional and criminal law. The youngest full professor ever at Harvard Law School, he taught from 1964 through 2013, where he was appointed as the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law in 1993. Dershowitz is a regular media contributor, political commentator, and legal analyst. Throughout his long career, he has written more than two-score books, at least one every year. His latest is coming soon, The Case For Color Blind Equality In The Age Of Identity Politics. Dershowitz has always believed in maintaining his sharpness in the courtroom as well as classroom, and has always undertaken complex, high-profile, and often unpopular cases, causes, and clients. He has represented a long list of luminaries on both sides of popular sentiment, including Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Leona Helmsley, Julian Assange, Jim Bakker, O.J. Simpson, Jeffery Epstein, and Harvey Weinstein. In 2018 he agreed to represent President Donald Trump, Dershowitz winning his latest landmark case. This and many of his recent pronouncements rubbed wrong the American Left, which had always been his fan-base, neighbors in New York, and social peers. What so many of them misunderstood, and what Alan explains so well in this wide-ranging conversation, is that he took and won the case in defense of the US Constitution, the protections and rights provided by which he sees as increasingly under dire threat from that same Left that once so warmly embraced and now so churlishly scorns him. So often the great among us are left to walk alone... join the Pack as we keep this brilliant mind and brave man company for a while in comfortable conversation.
