James Stejskal was recruited from the 82nd Airborne Brigade into an elite military special forces unit, the green berets, to operate espionage and reconnaissance hundreds of miles behind the Iron Curtain in Cold War Berlin. In this podcast we discuss the role of US special ops – US Army Rangers, US Navy SEALs, Delta Force, Green Berets – and their UK equivalent – Special Air Service (SAS), Special Boat Service (SBS), the Royal Marines Commandos, etc – as well as James’s unit’s highly covert mission behind enemy lines during the Cold War.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and James

C – James, how are you brother?

J – Very well, good morning Chris, well it’s proper afternoon where you are.

C – Hey, the way my head is it could be morning, noon or night?

J – It doesn’t really matter to me at the minute with this Corona thing going on, I’m stuck in the house no matter what.

C – It kinds of bring home the importance of routine.

J – It gives me a lot of time to work on my writing.

C – Of course. I think writing and podcasting are the two disciplines the flourish under these conditions. I call it a fiasco.

J – It certainly does, I don’t have the technical skills down for this, but I’ve been participating in a lot of Zoom calls, more in this last year than in my whole entire life, which is quite a few!
