Season 1, Episode 4: David Gaggin – Author

My guest today, is David Gaggin, author of The Endless Journey: A Unique Perspective on Mankind’s Origin, Purpose and Ultimate Destiny. David spent seventeen years as a design engineer and technical manager at Boeing, where he was responsible for designing automatic flight control and avionics systems.

After that, he spent nine years in the U.S. Government’s Senior Executive Service (SES) with the US Army directing avionics and command and control R&D. He then created and was the CEO of Cobham Defense Electronics Systems (CDES) Corp, a subsidiary of Cobham, plc, for 15 years. When he retired, CDES had become the world’s leading military microwave subsystem company.

During his career, he went on an exhaustive search for the most plausible answers that he could find to the classic questions concerning our existence: Who are we? Is there a God? Why is the cosmos here? How shall we live our life? What is important?

He believes the answers, which he describes in the form of a worldview, are right in front of us; but we fail to see them because we are so consumed with our materialistic lifestyle. This worldview describes a divine plan in which we are an intricate and important part. The answers to life’s most basic questions are detailed in his book, available on
