I am Brian Castner, former bomb squad commander and author – Ask Me Anything!
Hello reddit. I’m a writer and an ex-Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) officer. I did a couple tours in Iraq and my memoir about the experience, THE LONG WALK, came out last year. For WIRED's November issue I wrote a story about the Boston Bomb Squad's response to the marathon bombings.
