In this episode, Dave conducts a rare interview with an active member within Canada’s secretive special forces unit, JTF2. “Jeff” (not his real name) takes Dave inside the world of JTF2, discussing everything from myths surrounding the unit, to what it takes to make it through JTF2’s selection process, to making a bomb out of a pen. Later in the episode, Dave talks to retired Lt.-Gen. Mike Day, a former commander of JTF2. Mike talks to Dave about the history of the unit, how it’s been deployed and what its future might hold as military brass plan on eyeing civilian recruits to bolster the ranks.
