Video Podcast

When I first started my YouTube channel, the plan was to provide “teasers” on speeches as well as insight into each book. Well, that has evolved. So, what you’ll start seeing on my channel are recordings of speeches, albeit edited a bit as well as videos on specific topics.

I plan to add the videos frequently which may be recorded in a studio, in front of a live audience or in the privacy of my office. The content is going to be interesting and often shed fresh light on old topics, or cover topics of interest to those who have read my novels and those who don’t. 

The focus is going to be on aviation, but I reserve the right to add a my two cents to a timely topic.

So stay tuned, and most of all SUBSCRIBE!!!
