Welcome to the security perimeter
A fascinating discussion of current national and international security issues. I interview experts on different subjects. More often than not, the discussion ends with a heated (but friendly) debate between me and my guest. So far we have covered issues ranging from the future of NATO, violence and law enforcement in Mexico, defense policy in Canada, the US and Mexico, North Korea, cybersecurity, organized crime... you name it we have covered it or will eventually do so. Every other episode I also give my take on the new "cold war" between russia and the US. Trust me, its getting dangerous. listen to find out why!!! Email me at for comments and suggestions for future episodes. Podcast is mostly in english, but every once and and while, we cover a topic in spanish.
