BLACKOUT WARFARE: Attacking the U.S. Power Grid

In Episode 104 we got a taste of the new book from Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, when we spoke with David Pyne, who is one of many co-authors of the book. In this episode we get more about the book, but we also get to hear some of the bureaucratic lies, sleight of hand, and obfuscation that has kept our national power grid so vulnerable to our enemies.
