Who Are The Navy SEALs?

Who Are The Navy SEALs?
Eric Greitens The search for Osama bin Laden was one of the most extensive and expensive man hunts in United States history.  And in the end, with everything on the line and the entire military at his disposal, President Obama turned to a team of Navy SEALs to complete one of the most monumental—and risky —military operations in recent memory. Since the dramatic raid, unprecedented media coverage has raised the public profile of the SEAL community, but still there is still much we don’t know about who the SEALS are and what drives these elite fighters to undertake one of the toughest special operations training programs in the world (one with a dropout rate of 80%). Here to shed some light on that now is Eric Greitens, a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy SEALs, the CEO of The Mission Continues and author of The Heart and the Fist: The education of a humanitarian, the making of a Navy SEAL.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
