Episode 100 - Military Interrogator Dan West

• April 22nd, 2015

War is a nasty business, waged by complicated men. Perhaps the nastiest business of all is the retrieval of information from people who don't wanna give that information up.  Dan West was an interrogator for the United States Military, so his job was to get people to tell him things he needed to know.  He had a lot of techniques for getting what he wanted, some of them nastier than others.  Dan sits down with Collin to talk about what drew him to the military, the ruthless techniques that recruiters take, how one becomes an interrogator, the pros and cons of water-boarding, and much more.  Plus, Collin talks about a day he'll never forget.  Follow us on Twitter at @awkwardpodcast, like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentspod, and see Collin's upcoming live dates at www.collinabullock.com.  Collin likes you, and wants to be your friend.
