We were thrilled to recently get word from the Department of Defense that their mandatory security review of the The Man in the Arena manuscript has concluded, and we expect their final report in early April. Once we have reviewed their requested redactions (we don’t anticipate many), the book will immediately go to print, and those who pre-ordered signed, first-edition copies can expect to begin receiving their books toward the end of May.

Apple is no stranger to podcasts, but now it's using them to help boost TV+ viewership. Variety reports that Apple has introduced The Line, its first combination of a podcast with an original show. Jeffery Zimbalist's video documentary on former Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher doesn't debut until the fall, but you can already listen to a six-part audio series on Apple Podcasts that includes interviews with Gallagher and his wife, "exclusive reporting" and other insights into the soldier's alleged criminal activity.

In 2018, a group of Navy SEALs broke ranks and accused their chief, Eddie Gallagher, of murder—sucking them all into the biggest war crimes trial in a generation. Did a Navy SEAL cross the line in Iraq? Dan Taberski (“Running from COPS”) takes you inside that courtroom for the first time, peeling back the curtain on how America wages its wars now and revealing the story that the media covering the trial blew right past. Through intimate conversations with over 50 special operators, the series explores just how blurred the line between right and wrong has become in the forever wars—and what that’s doing to the hearts and minds of those we send to fight them.
