Episode 6 - Ian Wright: Buy Local, Buy Locusts.

Description

In this episode we cover many things including being arrested by the Secret Service, the fall of the Berlin Wall, getting chased by hippos, life expectancy in an Algerian Kasbah, sitting on a balcony watching a war rage in Africa and stargazing on a rooftop in Iraq.

Nine years working as personal security for an extremely high-profile international business man as well as top UK and US government officials has meant that today’s guest, Ian Wright, has travelled all over the world. Combine this with twelve years in the military, he’s had the opportunities to visit places that not many of us would dare venture to.
