E26 – “Pothole of the Gods” w/ Richard Murff (Podcast)

Episode 26 – Erik Slader is joined by intrepid author Richard Murff to talk about his latest book, “Pothole of the Gods: On Holy War, Fake News and Other Ill-Advised Ideas” (now available on Amazon)! The two talk about everything from traveling abroad in the Middle East to the Hundred Years War to James Bond movies! (Recorded in November, 2021)

‘Pothole of the Gods’ is an ill-advised, but hilarious ramble through the histories and modern streets of Iraq, Istanbul, and Benghazi. Attached to a marauding medical mission, Murff unravels a dismal record of global adventurism from Cyrus the Great, the epic clash of Persia and Greece, the glory that was Rome, the Crusades, America’s New World Order, to Iran’s attempts to trigger the apocalypse next sometime next week.
