    Roberta Jacobson: The Ambassador

    Roberta Jacobson: The Ambassador

    Roberta Jacobson was the United States Ambassador to Mexico from 2016 through 2018.  
    A graduate of Brown University and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Roberta became an expert on the Americas and particularly on Mexico during her more than three decades of public service at the State Department. She enjoyed postings in Argentina and Peru, served as the Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere, and led the US delegation that reestablished formal diplomatic ties with Cuba, at the behest of President Obama, in 2016.  
    But Mexico was her focus. She was deeply respected on both sides of the border for her integrity, intellect, diligence, and brought a passion for Mexico and its history and people to her post.   
    In this episode, Roberta talks to Chuck Rosenberg about the role of the State Department in foreign policy and international affairs and the vital work of the men and women dedicated to this crucial mission. She also discusses our relationship with Mexico and the challenges faced by both sides as we move forward.

    John Pistole: Full Circle

    John Pistole: Full Circle

    John Pistole’s remarkable life has come full circle. A career FBI special agent who rose through the ranks to become the Deputy Director (the second highest official in the Bureau), John held that crucial and sensitive position longer than anyone in the history of the FBI and, in his case, under iconic Director Robert Mueller.
    Though John imagined that would be his last job in public service, President Obama tapped him in 2010 to serve as the head of the Transportation Security Administration - an agency John led for almost five years and through significant change.
    Raised in Anderson, Indiana, on the campus of Anderson University - where his father and sister both taught - John has since returned to his alma mater to serve as the President of Anderson University. Indeed, his life has come full circle.
    On The Oath, John shares fascinating stories of his work as an FBI special agent, of working with and for Bob Mueller after 9/11, and of reforming the TSA, including the use of intelligence assessments and risk mitigation strategies to drive TSA operations.

    Bob Paulson: The Mountie

    Bob Paulson: The Mountie

    After a remarkable career in law enforcement, Bob Paulson retired as the 23rd Commissioner of the iconic Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Bob explains the RCMP, also known as The Mounties, and its unique mandate as national, provincial, and municipal law enforcement in Canada. It's also responsible for three territories, eight provinces, more than 150 municipalities, and more than 600 Indigenous communities.
    On The Oath, Bob discusses his stalled career as a Royal Canadian Air Force pilot and his transition to policing. Bob rose quickly through the enlisted and officer ranks of The Mounties, where he stood out as a thoughtful, intelligent, and selfless leader.
    As host Chuck Rosenberg’s first international guest on The Oath, Bob discusses the RCMP’s shameful past in connection with Canada’s notorious residential schools and the painful reconciliation that took place in Canada and within the RCMP many years later.

    James Stavridis: Fair Winds and Following Seas

    James Stavridis: Fair Winds and Following Seas

    James Stavridis retired from the United States Navy as a four-star admiral and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, the only Navy Admiral ever to serve in that crucial role. His retelling of his work in NATO, including its special design, challenges, and impact, is essential for anyone interested in global affairs.
    Jim also tells host Chuck Rosenberg some fascinating tales of his time in the Navy. During his service, Jim rotated through some of the most difficult and sensitive jobs in the military. In one recounting of mistakes made and lessons learned at sea, Jim remembers almost running a destroyer aground in the Suez Canal as a young officer. The result is a remarkable study in humility and leadership.
    A graduate of the United States Naval Academy and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Jim is the acclaimed author of four books: The Accidental Admiral, Sea Power, Destroyer Captain, The Leader’s Bookshelf (with R. Manning Ancell) and most recently, Sailing True North.

Great Podcast, well done!

Thank you for your service to the United States of America and to the good folks at law enforcement Offices, FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc. that show through their continued dedication that their oath actually has meant and currently means something. You all show our children and the country’s future generations that William Barr and the current President are an abomination and a black stain on the country and it’s history and that the current President and AG and entire Republican Senate and Republican House are the ones that have done a disservice not only to the entire country but to the oath that they have taken. Once again, thank you to all the hard working men and women that are being tested and have to work under unbearable circumstances. Your country needs you more than ever and your country appreciates you. Hopefully you all will have learned a lesson from any votes that were cast in 2016/2018 for the current President or Republicans. Oath Podcast is amazing and so far your guests (even James Comey who I can’t seem to forgive for helping to put the country in the situation that we are in today) has me enthralled. Listening to their stories puts a human face to an organization that the President and the AG and former DAG are trying to tear down. Keep up the good work Chuck! Looking forward to hearing from Sally Yates...love her! We must win back our democracy/values and save our great country, we must!
