  • On this episode of "We're Not Blowing Hot Air," we explore life's fundamental question "How Can We Know Truth?" with Ryan McBeth – a U.S. intelligence analyst, YouTube personality, journalist and educator, and highly regarded military consultant on things like information warfare strategies and open-source intelligence. Ryan explains why and how propaganda and disinformation spreads like the plague on social media, which social media platform he considers a “weapon system,” and why I don’t need to be so concerned about nuclear war! Ryan’s wisdom and expertise stems from his rich educational background in systems and cyber security, and his 20 years in the U.S. Army, where he served in two-overseas-deployments as an anti-armor and heavy weapons infantryman. A lover of life and ceasing the day, Ryan enjoys a choice cigar and fine whiskey as much as training for a marathon. Discover more about courage, truth, how to spot destructive lies in the minefield of social media, in this important episode of “We’re Not Blowing Hot Air.”

    Editor's Note: Due to some technical difficulties, the host's video has some gaps in this episode.
