Episode #23 – Fighter Pilot: Mohammed Alam

Is capital punishment justifiable, and if so, when?

In this week’s episode, Paul and Jordan explore this challenging question while talking with former fighter pilot Mohammed Alam. He shares what role he played in bringing about devastating effects of war, as well as describing, in lucid detail, witnessing a public execution in Saudi Arabia that has left an “indelible” mark on him. Mohammed’s troubling recollections provoke listeners to reconsider the ethics of state of power and what controls are necessary (or not) to maintain a just and secure society.
