Brad Thor is a writer of thrillers, and best-selling ones at that. (His latest is Code of Conduct.) But he is more than a storyteller: He’s an expert in defense, counterterrorism, and other such matters.
He is also a political conservative (and doesn’t care who knows it). Are thriller-writers always conservative, or usually conservative? Brad and I talk about this in a new Q&A podcast.
We also talk about various trouble-spots in the world, although the world at large seems to be one big trouble-spot. We discuss Iran, Russia, Iraq, Greece, Afghanistan . . . We also talk about Edward Snowden — of whom Brad is not a fan, lemme tell you. And the 2016 election. (Brad has a horse.) And so on.
Because he has written bluntly about Islamofascism, Brad Thor has received many threats — death threats — from Islamists. Yet he writes on, frankly and happily. As I note at the end of this ’cast, it’s a joy to talk to him — even when the subjects are dark or apocalyptic.
Again, for that podcast, go here.
