Dramatic lack of f-words

What type of national security podcast doesn't use vulgar language. Still 5 star's, would be 6 with more f-bombs.

A Cat Called Sneeze ,

Generally solid

As a diplomat, I listen to a lot of international affairs podcasts. This is a pretty good one, despite some already tired set-piece jokes (seriously, no-one cares about guests’ favourite statistical formula - it was funny the first couple of times but by this point just seems smirky and self-congratulatory on the part of the hosts). Intelligent discussions that usually add to my knowledge and understanding.
——
Edit: The smirkiness continues. Typically the first 8 minutes of each podcast should be skipped over as it is just the hosts asking their guest personal questions of no possible interest to anyone other than themselves (“what movie line do you quote the most often?”...yawn). Seriously: you need to reconsider the concept.

Always a Must Listen

A lifetime ago I was an International Relations major. Maybe I would have stuck it out of I had three profs that talked about Star Wars and bourbon while discussing East Asia strategy and procurement.
