Beck said, “It was the Ironman project. So, we’re trying to build the suit. We’ve been working on it for a long time.”

Rogan noted, “Really, I didn’t know that?” Beck continued, “I was on the beginning of the project. It was called Carnivore at first. And a few other names… It’s changed so much right now; It’s all kinds of materials. I mean Titanium, Carbon Fibre, all the top stuff.”

When Rogan wondered, “It’s supposed to fly?” Beck offered, “It’s gonna do a lot of stuff.”

The Ex-Navy SEAL further talked about the features of the suit, while Rogan had many questions to ask. At one point, Beck suggested they should be careful talking about this stuff. However, she mentioned, “Iron man [project] is not classified anymore. They’ve talked about it”
