    ICYMI: The Air Force's Chicken Gun

    ICYMI: The Air Force's Chicken Gun

    When the United States Air Force tests a new aircraft it needs to make sure it won't crash should a stray bird slam into the plane's side. Thankfully, the military has an artillery piece with a 60-foot barrel that hurls chicken more than 400 miles an hour. The chicken gun allows the military to make sure no stray bird will foul up its expensive jets while they're mid-flight. If you think the chicken gun is weird, it’s only the tip of a strange and fascinating iceberg.

    Ukraine on the Brink

    Ukraine on the Brink

    Ukraine. It started with pro European protests in the Winter of 2013. Then came the annexation of Crimea, the little green men, Igor Strelkov, the Donbas, and a long simmering war in the Eastern Ukraine. Things are changing. Ukraine’s president said that Russia has amassed 100,000 troops on the border, Latvia has mobilized its National Guard, and Poland called for an emergency meeting of NATO. To say tensions are rising would be an understatement. 
    Here to walk us through what’s happening is Coffee or Die Magazine senior editor Nolan Peterson. Peterson is a journalist and a former United States Air Force special operations pilot. He’s published a lot of great journalism from the frontlines of the war in the Donbas. His latest is A Brief History of Russia’s War Against Ukraine.

    UNLOCKED: Inside Europe’s 3D Printed Gun Scene

    UNLOCKED: Inside Europe’s 3D Printed Gun Scene

    Guns. Guns. Guns. We Americans love them, don’t we folks?
    But the culture is different in other parts of the world and people who want to build their own weapons, make their own Ammo, and fire down range with a sweet semi-automatic have to break the rules to do so. Thanks to 3D printing, that’s getting a lot easier to do as groups like Deterrence Dispensed spread the good word—and the plans—of making guns at home. Is it for home defense? Is it all in good fun? Or is it part of a broader ideology? 
    Here to help answer those questions is journalist, podcaster, and documentarian Jake Hanrahan. Deterrence Dispensed and 3D guns in Europe is the subject of Jake’s latest Popular Front documentary Plastic Defence, which is on YouTube.

    How Militaries Camouflage Their Carbon Emissions

    How Militaries Camouflage Their Carbon Emissions

    Militaries around the world are preparing for climate change. That’s true even in countries where politicians are indifferent to global warming.
    But what about the emissions being spewed by those militaries themselves?
    Joining us to talk about that today is Doug Weir. He’s Research and Policy Director, The Conflict and Environment Observatory, and has studied the issue.

    Hawaii's Place at the Crossroads of Empire

    Hawaii's Place at the Crossroads of Empire

    Hawaii. America’s latest state is a tropical paradise, a vacation hotspot, and an important strategic military asset. If you’ve never been to Hawaii you might be shocked at how much of a presence the Pentagon has on the islands.
    It’s America’s gateway to the Pacific and an important part of its Naval might. Something we’re going to learn the broader importance of in an upcoming episode. Here with us today to talk about Hawaii is someone who has spent the last few years there covering the military. It’s Angry Planet producer Kevin Knodell.

    Patrolling the Seven Seas Isn't Cheap

    Patrolling the Seven Seas Isn't Cheap

    Sea power was the secret of the Phoenicians, the Greeks - even the landlubber Romans when they took the upper hand against Carthage. More recently - which isn’t hard - the British Empire was won on the seas and an empire with tall ships.
    But how much navy is enough navy? And can a smaller, lighter, more advanced fleet do the job?
    Joining us today to talk about the future of the US Navy is Dr. Jerry Hendrix. Hendrix serviced 26 years in the Navy and retired a captain. He is now a vice president at Telemus Group, a strategic consultancy.

Deep dives, prescient questions

Longtime listener. I appreciate how Jason and Matthew hook me in topics I didn’t expect to find interesting. Good variety of guests and the hosts ask the questions we are wondering about. Intellectually rigorous in a podcast landscape littered with people just trying to be witty with no depth.

Great show,

Love the show new intro much better

Alex RHEC ,

More biased propaganda

Typical biased propaganda subliminally pushing leftist ideology. Save your time and listen to something that’s apolitical like popular front
