The footage out of Beirut is absolutely fucking nuts.
I've been near big explosions and I talk about one in the podcast, and the concussion is just impossible to explain. You gotta listen to the show to find out what happens, though, no free ads or something like that.
Seeing how far the shockwave traveled in Beirut is incredible, they found debris over two miles away. I can't even imagine what people near the blast felt.
The rest of the show is a little lighter and Cons even fucked up reading while making fun of Marines for being illiterate and then completely missed a very obvious movie reference. You hate to see it.
