Contingency Planning With Frank Sobchak - US Special Forces Veteran

In this episode I talk to Frank Sobchak.

Frank is a PhD candidate in international relations at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. He has taught at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Tufts University, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He holds a BS in Military History from West Point and a MA in Arab Studies from Georgetown University.

During his twenty-six-year career in the U.S. Army, he served in various Special Forces assignments including leading teams and companies in 5th Special Forces Group in peace and in war and representing U.S. Special Operations Command as a congressional liaison.

In this episode I explore with Frank three main topics, namely,

  • Survival and contingency planning
  • The importance of being prepared
  • Risk management and putting it into practice
