War for undergrads
So I stumbled across this podcast a couple weeks back and about three months before that I’d changed degrees into security studies which while I’d studied it professionally and as a hobby for some 8 years I’d really struggled with my courses need to read into situations through more than one lens of reasoning. Then I stumbled across war for idiots. While knowing my luck this won’t translate into course work, the straightforward, humorous format has allowed me to wrestle with the concepts of my studies in a much more straightforward and representative manner and even when I’ve disagreed with their opinions they’ve given me points to consider and reflect upon which is more than I can say from some of my HECS funded lectures.
Thank god for the sound board. It’s the morale boost we all need in these troubling times. Good work idiots, glad to see your back and running as tight a ship as ever, sparing no expense in post production. I’m not sure if I’m delirious from Rona Iso but this episode whilst not particularly illuminating about war was an important recap of all the things I’d forgotten I didn’t care about when they happened over the last 2 years. Except for the Hong Kong riots. Cared about that. Anyway, like an Uber eats guy that ate some of my chips before delivering I still award you idiots 5stars.
