Episode 95

Just Listened to Dean and Mick discuss morality in war. Great podcast and complements the work currently being done across Army to highlight ethical conduct. 5 stars!

New experience

First time I’ve taken the time to actually listen to an officer and it hasn’t turned out too badly. May give it another go during the next O group.

11/10 Would Recommend to Mum and Dad

I got into this after seeing it mentioned in an article on The Forge. Great guests covering great topics replete with very dry and very bland self deprecating humour, what could be better?
