    Episode 54: The World of the Icelanders

    The peoples of the North Atlantic have long been a source of fascination and fear for western culture for the last thousand years. Some view them as romanticized warriors from a simple culture, others as barbarians biting at their shields. But the truth is more complex than this and, as we have seen in previous "The World Of" episodes, the environment of the author plays heavily into their perspective. We are excited to bring to you the heading for our next Icelandic Sagas installment

    Episode 52: The Price of Ambition

    Episode 52: The Price of Ambition

    The art of politics is universal, and politics are a central consideration in any human institution. Every school, every church, every family, every workplace... wherever humans gather, politics are sure to follow. How do we navigate this minefield; a place where a mistake can cost you dearly? How do we seek to acquire power, and how do we retain it? While the rules for the insurgent and counterinsurgent are different in application, both operate with the same goal in mind: the support of the population at large. This episode deals with those themes of universal politics and the varied methods used by those on opposite ends of the power structure. Antoinette is our special guest to discuss the burdens of central leadership and retaining popular support. Join us as we define the price of ambition and the consequences of overreach.

    Episode 51: Principles of Violence

    Episode 51: Principles of Violence

    The strategy of the insurgent is rooted in fluidity. Operational fluidity and discipline aid the insurgent's strategy to sow disorder, ultimately draining the resources and fighting power of their foes. Conversely, the stability of the region is where the counterinsurgent draws their power. Seeking to preserve order above all else, the counterinsurgent has a myriad of offensive and defensive operations at their disposal. Special Guest Par joins us to examine the details of these principles of violence.

    Episode 49: Contrary Doctrines

    Episode 49: Contrary Doctrines

    The conduct of operations in asymmetric warfare is entirely unlike that seen in conventional warfare. The uneven nature of the contest changes the way the conflict must be approached. Many a 'superior' army has fallen into the trap of underestimating their foe. While numbers may be an advantage, they are no means a guarantee of victory. Malark is joined by special guest Todo, a long time wargamer and expert in this field. Join us as we explore these contrary doctrines
