The Jedburgh Podcast


In May 1943 the Allied Forces determined a new type of leader was required to win World War II. Operation Jedburgh parachuted three-man teams deep behind enemy lines to win no matter the challenge. Jedburghs lived by the mantra “how you prepare today, determines success tomorrow.” Today’s leaders are no different.

The Jedburgh Podcast empowers leaders to achieve success on their journey to transform themselves and their organizations. Creator, Host and Special Forces Green Beret Fran Racioppi interviews the world’s most prominent visionaries, drivers of change, and those dedicated to winning.

Each episode is an in-depth discussion with trailblazers whose leadership lessons empower listeners to define success and operate at an elite level, regardless of the task at hand.

Operation Jedburgh commenced the night of June 5, 1944, as three-man teams parachuted behind enemy lines into occupied France. From there they made history and changed the world.

In honor of these inspirational leaders, the Jedburgh Podcast speaks to today’s Jedburghs from the back of our 1944 Dodge WC-51. Originally built for the 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment, this fully restored and functioning Dodge continues to make an impact long after its retirement from service.
