Transcript from ‘Britain’s Elite Pathfinders’ podcast

Steve – There was one time we were out in Afghanistan and we’re heading towards a town. We’re getting to an obvious sort of choke point and this is dodgy, but we’ve got to go through it. You can’t just turn off a mission because you think it’s dangerous. Obviously the mission is dangerous by nature and while we’re doing that, the guy picked up a transmission on the radio and someone said they are coming.

Chris and Mike

C – Mike, how are you brother?

M – Excellent, excellent Chris thank you and thank you for having me on for the chat.

C – Wow, thank you for joining us. I always like a man with a bookcase behind him. Says a lot about you.

M – Lot of cook books!

C – Haha, I thought you were going to say 1984, Brave New World and Wild Swans.

M –  They’re in the other room.

C – More importantly did you come tooled up?  (Chris shows Micheal a primary colour water pistol!)

M – Yes I did, I’ve got my NERF gun. When you’ve got a son in the house you have to be properly prepared. Like a leopard crawling around the house, clearing rooms. He interrogates me from time to time.
