It is a scary world out there. There are people who want to do us, and our nation, harm. Today’s guest has spent his career helping America avoid that harm. Dr. Zachary Mears has worked at the highest public and private sector levels. Mears recently came to Columbus to be the assistant vice president for national security and research programs at the Ohio State University, and to hold an advisory office at Battelle, a leading research and development firm headquartered right next door to the university. On this episode of Town Hall Ohio, we talk about what risks we face, from whom, and what we are or should be doing to keep America safe.
