Musical storyteller Michael Hurley made his debut on Folkways records way back in 1964 and shows no signs of slowing down because there's always another story to tell. His songs have been covered by The Violent Femmes, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo and previous Low Profile guests Eugene Chadbourne and the Holy Modal Rounders. Michael's performances are few and far between these days, and interviews with him are even more rare. Without him American music would not be the same, and it was an honor to welcome this living legend to the stage.James Madea is a mutual friend of mine and Michael's, and the two of them are planning to start a new band and make a new record any day now.  Madea's songwriting is spot-on: feels like you know it by the time it's done, and it really sticks.  According to James, none of these songs have ever been recorded or released before this episode, so that's an exclusive to the max.  Most music fans in Olympia probably know James Madea from our vinyl mecca Rainy Day Records where he obsessively curates a treasure trove of 45RPM singles, or his occasional DJ sets as Wildman James, spinning underground garage rock gems most people have never heard. He's also a founding member of the group Spider and the Webs, along with his wife Sara Pete and Bikini Kill's Tobi Vail. But Wildman James is also a gifted songwriter, with leanings toward early rock and country music, echoing the lonesome twang of artists like Townes Van Zandt, Billie Joe Shaver and Hasil Atkins.Regrettably, though somewhat predictably, I found myself with my first positive test for COVID-19 a few days before this eagerly anticipated show and could not attend.  I hadn't heard these remarkable performances until the weekend of this episode's release, and I can say you're in for a real treat.  The noble Jack Habegger returns as guest host on my behalf, thankfully, and makes it all work.  This episode was engineered by Miles Rozatti in front of a live audience behind the historic Carnegie Library in downtown Olympia, WA on July 3, 2022.  Note: this episode is edited for time, but if you become a supporter on patreon.com/lowprofile you can hear the entire show.lowprofilepodcast.comScherler Sundays is a collaborative effert by Low Profile and Three Magnets Brewing Company.

Welcome to Part 2 of our agave spirit exploration! After attending Mezcal Lauderdale a few months ago, we are doing a deep dive of Mexican agave spirits (that aren't tequila) that we not only sampled at the event, but are also available for YOU to try here in Florida. On the last episode, we discovered the difference between tequila and mezcal. Now, we're going to find out the difference between mezcal and bacanora with Vinateros Bacanora. They are imported into the US through Jacksonville-based Gigglewater Imports and co-owner, Chris Allison. He'll give us the rundown on bacanora and Vinateros, along with why Florida is such a great place to import spirits. From there, we finish up with Borderland Spirits and owner Michael Hurley. Borderland is the exclusive U.S. distributor of both Batuq brand bacanoras and Mazot bacanoras and palmilla as well. There's a lot of great distilling history with these brands, and Michael will walk us through it all. Listen in…   Host: David Butler of the Florida Beer Blog Executive Producer: Jaime ("Jemmy") Legagneur, Chief Enthusiasm Officer Field Producer/Photographer: Steve Pekala Editor: Daniel Delgado Guest: Chris Allison of Gigglewater Imports/Vinateros Guest: Michael Hurley of Borderland Spirits/Batuq & Mazot Equipment Sponsor: Mainline Marketing | Featured Product: Shure MV7 | Full MV7 Podcast Mic Bundle with Boom Arm and Headphones Interested in becoming FBP's next Title Sponsor?

Ep. 19 — A Veteran CIA Operative Looks Back on the Early Days of the War in Afghanistan and the Implications of the Recent Pull Out / Michael Hurley, Former CIA Operations Officer & Senior Counsel and Team Leader 9/11 Commission.

Techtopia with Chitra Ragavan

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, the frenetic U..S. pullout of Afghanistan under dangerous conditions has reopened the wounds of those strikes and once again raises the specter of al Qaeda and ISIS taking root in Afghan soil —  posing new global threats to American security and those of our allies for decades to come. Joining me now to talk about the deepening crisis of the Afghanistan crisis and its ramifications is my dear friend, Michael Hurley who served for 25 years as a CIA operations officer, serving 15 of those in foreign countries. Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, Hurley deployed for 18 months to Afghanistan where he led Agency personnel and U.S. Special Forces in Operation Anaconda, the biggest campaign of the Afghan conflict to find and destroy the last refuge of the Taliban and Al Qaeda. In that role, Mike was a leader in the hunt for Osama bin Laden. He also served as a Senior Counsel and Team Leader on the 9/11 Commission, directing its counterterrorism policy investigation and co-authoring its best-selling final report. Hurley remains deeply immersed in the national security and policy implications in the aftermath of the attacks and speaks and advises widely on those critical issues.  He currently is a strategic advisor to some of the most innovative technology companies in Silicon Valley and beyond. In this riveting episode, the suburban Minnesota native looks back on those early days of being dropped into Afghanistan's cold, unforgiving mountainous terrain and having to land on his feet without knowledge of language, culture, food, or people and ability to distinguish friend from foe. Without any kind of blueprint, he immediately had to begin gaining the trust of friendly Afghan militia and citizens and working with the most elite teams in the U.S. and allied military to capture or kill members of al Qaeda and the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Osama bin Laden. Hurley also shares his views on the messy U.S. pull out of Afghanistan in recent weeks and the implications for resurgence of al Qaeda and other terror cells and the possibility of future terrorist attacks against the U.S. And he looks at how the U.S. mishandled the evacuation plans for potentially half a million Afghans and their families who helped the War in Afghanistan over two decades, the majority of whom have been left behind and remain in peril at the hands of the Taliban.
