TTB 187: TSA, Our Travel Guardians

Thomas Carter, Federal Security Director (FSD), leads the oversight of Newark, a Category X airport, and two spoke airports in the state of New Jersey, accommodating more than 30 million passengers per year for the TSA. Mr. Carter joined the TSA at its inception by transferring from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) after the horrific events of 9/11. Today we discussed the importance of TSA from the perspective of the traveler, TSA’s mission to keep us safe, some of the common misconceptions people have about the TSA/security process, and ways we can be more efficient and mindful of the men and women who work at the TSA in order to keep travel the joyous experience we all love! 

The Travelers Blueprint is an indie travel podcast where each week we like to bring you insight from travel authors, adventurers, conservationists, digital nomads, tour guides, and through our own personal experiences.
