    #373 | Steve Stratton | Author and Former Green Beret

    Episode 373 with Steve Stratton!  Wow, thank you ALL for the support of The Protectors Podcast TM!    We not only talk to a great author but we also get into the craft of penning a thriller.  A big thanks to my awesome cohost Eric Bishop (author of The Body Man) as well!  
    This episode supported by Ranger Point Precision. 


    About:  Steve Stratton started his military career at the White House Communications Agency. His work took him around the world introducing him to new cultures, ways of thinking, and the various agencies tasked with projecting and protecting American interests abroad. The jump to the US Secret Service was an easy transition but after several years and an election campaign, Steve left for the commercial sector.

    Steve was awarded his Green Beret in 1986. From the 80’s through 2000 he deployed with 20th Special Forces on counter-drug and training missions in the SOUTHCOM region. His civilian contractor time includes support for USCENTCOM, USSOCOM, and several intelligence agencies. Today he develops cyber security products that support the warfighter and intelligence community.

But it could have gone much differently.

Smooth and professional

Jason has such a smooth, calming radio voice but I think he might have a face for Hollywood also! Love his podcast. Great guests and such a variety. Can’t wait to hear more from him!!

snowflake behavior

i enjoyed this podcast until i saw they were harassing another podcast with the word “protectors” in the title. no reason for that kind of sensitivity for someone who claims to be a “protector”!!!

AmaAdair ,

Outstanding concept

Taking the time to showcase those who “run towards danger,” in all their endeavors, is not only brilliant but compelling. Great guests coupled with incredible insight and perspective make for an overall amazing show.
