Great Podcast

Refreshing interviews that ask thought provoking questions and give time for detailed answers. Not just sound bites. Key individuals interviewed in the defence and security forum for Canada. Well done!

CaptLuong ,

A wealth of knowledge

This is a great podcast on subjects which should interest all Canadians done by scholars, not pundits.

Bravoranchand ,

Great info but...

Great to hear updates on the topics that never seem to make the national news. For that id rate you a 5 star. But having guests on a podcast using communications systems that are not optimized for broadcast is a disservice to them and tous listeners. For that you get 1 star for no effort. Your average is 3. DO BETTER.
