Today, Dr. Serhii Plokhy shares the story of KGB assassin Bogdan Stashinsky. Stashinsky is best known for assassinating a man on a bridge using a gun that contained a poison pellet as opposed to a bullet, ultimately killing his target in a way that appeared to be natural causes. Following his defection, his case involved a highly publicized assassination trial in 1962. Thanks to his honesty, Soviet leaders were finally implicated in many of the killings they had ordered and the KGB was put under pressure to reform their cruel tactics.Check out Dr. Plokhy's book, The Man with the Poison Gun, here.https://www.amazon.com/Man-Poison-Gun-Cold-Story/dp/0465035906/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=Connect with Spycraft 101:IG: @spycraft101Patreon: Spycraft 101Buy the book: here on Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/Spy-Shots-Tales-World-Espionage/dp/B09BY3WH71/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1628473373&sr=1-2Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/spycraft101)

Can you overdose on fentanyl just from being near it? Over the past few years, a number of police officers have said just that. In 2016, the Drug Enforcement Administration even issued a warning to cops about the dangers of such encounters. The stories have made national news, but they've also invited skepticism.

It's a must-read that every person, religious and non-religious, should buy and peruse every night before bed. It'll make you think harder, pray more ardently, and understand your civilization better." — Ben Shapiro, host of "The Ben Shapiro Show" "Dennis Prager's commentary on Exodus will rank among the greatest modern Torah commentaries. That is how important I think it is. And I am clearly not alone... It might well be on its way to becoming the most widely read Torah commentary of our time—and by non-Jews as well as by Jews." — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, bestselling author of Jewish Literacy Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors – and sometimes we ourselves – dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought. Do you think the Bible permitted the trans-Atlantic slave trade? You won't after reading this book. Do you struggle to love your parents? If you do, you need this book. Do you doubt the existence of God because belief in God is “irrational?” This book will give you reason after reason to rethink your doubts. The title of this commentary is, “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. As Prager says, “If something I write does not make rational sense, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life. His goal: to change your mind – and then change your life.   Highly Recommended by ACU.

There's no end to this timeline. This past January Deshaun Watson shocked the NFL and the Houston Texans by requesting a trade after Nick Caserio was hired, then David Culley was hired, doing nothing to change Watson's mind about the whole thing; an ominous late night tweet detonated a barrage of sexual assault allegations with the official count piling up to 22, Houston didn't trade Watson, he headed to training camp, and was missing yesterday once the pads piled on. Trade rumors. Civil suits. The NFL's investigation to nowhere. A possible future trade. That's what we eventually have to look forward to. To help us make sense of this mess, The Defector's investigative editor Diana Moskovitz joined Battle Red Radio. Topics include: how the news rolls out for allegations like this, the similarity between the allegations, how long this can go on for, what you don't know, and the NFL's own investigative process.

We talk about her novel, how getting to know people outside the evangelical bubble changes your perspective, her experiences in the media, and much more. God Spare the Girls tells the story of two daughters of a megachurch pastor whose rise to evangelical fame came from a viral speech about purity culture - and that's just how the story starts.

RAY RATTO, writer for Defector and Radio host on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco, joins the podcast to discuss some Major League Baseball and a little bit of NBA as well.  Bob, John and Ray begin the show addressing MLB's All-star festivities and Pete Alonso's second straight Home Run Derby win. Is he really the leagues best home run hitter like he says he is? The three also have a lengthy conversation on what Major League Baseball needs to do to "fix" the game - with Ray saying the league needs to embrace having fun. Is the focus on math and analytics making this game too boring? We also discuss the Pascal Siakam trade rumours, whether they have any validity to them and whether the Golden State Warriors are ready to give up on Wiseman after only one year. Ray, Bob and John talk about Chris Paul's legacy and what winning a ring will mean for him. To end the show the three talk the Phoenix suns, their route to the finals and what has been working for them to make them so dangerous.
