    TFB Behind The Gun Podcast Episode #18: Defense Distributed Ghost Gunner

    Welcome back to the unofficial debut of Season 2 of TFB’s Behind The Gun Podcast where we dive into the inner workings and the brightest minds behind the industry’s most influential organizations. Like the rest of the world, COVID thrashed our plans of recording in-person podcast interviews at all the industry shows in 2020. Virtual interviews are an acceptable placeholder, but nothing beats a real face-to-face conversation. We open the 2021 podcast season with Cody Wilson and the rest of the team from Defense Distributed Ghost Gunner 3 where they talk about their latest addition – the ability to mill AK receivers. They also share their insights on the industry, the political landscape and various challenges moving forward.

    Much thanks to the Defense Distributed team for making the trip to GUNFEST in NOLA and our sponsors for making this podcast possible. Enjoy the listen.

    Note: Our recording studio was Coquette, an upscale restaurant and bar in the garden district of New Orleans. Our apologies for a bit of background noise.
