Lacks insight

Great guests but there is nothing to see here expect hot takes about ‘combat bras’ in procurement and millennial bashing around ‘beardforgen’. I expected more insightful questions to some of the CAF’s leadership but was supremely disappointed.

Oof

If you’ve ever attempted to navigate and felt aligned with Army.ca, this podcast is for you.

Do you like telling people ‘this questions already been asked, see mega-merged thread from 2004’ or ‘try google first’? This is for you.

Do you complain about how the young troops have no sense of drive or pride? This is for you.

Are you a dinosaur who believes the army isn’t what it used to be and is full of ‘snowflakes’ who don’t understand the military? This is for you.

Really not the best or thought provoking content as a first Canadian Military podcast. r/canadianforces will give you a lot more. Or a book.
