    What a War Game Tells Us About Taiwan

    What a War Game Tells Us About Taiwan

    It’s only human to play games. Some might argue it’s in the DNA. Games are part of how we learn, and can be the best way to teach or solve a problem. But some games are more serious than others. 
    A game recently played at a Washington think tank is about as serious as it gets. It looked at what might happen if China attacked Taiwan, and the results weren’t pretty for anyone.
    Joining us today to discuss what they found in playing the game is Mark Cancian. He is a retired marine corps colonel and is a senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies International Security Program.
    Here’s a link to the report.

    The Long Weird History of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle

    The Long Weird History of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle

    The Bradley Fighting Vehicle is on its way to Ukraine. Fifty of them, to be precise. This armored personnel carrier on tracks is not a tank. Don’t call it a tank. Once maligned as a boondoggle that represented everything wrong with Pentagon weapon’s programs, the Bradley is now a much desired piece of armor.
    With us today to suss this all out is Sebastian Roblin. Roblin is a freelance journalist whose work has appeared in NBC, Forbes, and—of course—War Is Boring.

    The Wagner Group Gives Putin Implausible Deniability

    The Wagner Group Gives Putin Implausible Deniability

    The shine has come off Russia’s regular armed forces. We’ve all seen the pictures in Ukraine of burned out vehicles and crashed drones, everything already starting to rust. Casualties for the Russian military are estimated to be over 100,000. 
    But the Russian Army isn’t the only force in Ukraine fighting on Moscow’s behalf. The Wagner Group is there, too, and we know far less about them and what they’re doing.
    To help us get a better view, we’re joined by Jason Blazakis. He’s Director of the Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, and a senior research fellow at the Soufan Group. and wrote an op-ed for Newsweek on Wagner last week.

    Talking Russia with the CIA's Former Eurasian Bureau Chief

    Talking Russia with the CIA's Former Eurasian Bureau Chief

    We’ve talked a lot on this program about electronic intelligence—the amazing stuff you can do with satellites, user generated content and sophisticated software.
    Nice.
    But we’ve left out all the men and women who still do work on the ground, all over the world.
    Paul Kolbe is here to remind us about human intelligence and the role it plays. Kolbe is a CIA veteran, having worked in the directorate of operations for 25 years before moving on to private industry. He’s currently director of the Intelligence project at the Belfer Center at Harvard.

This is the perfect choice for anyone interested in learning more about global affairs! Each episode is informative and enjoyable.

Go look at the 2 star reviews and laugh.

This show highlights so many injustices and nuances of global affairs, geopolitics, and conflict. The conservatives/Republicans just hate that things change even though they don’t know how to and this show is just another factor in that equation. The world is getting more authoritarian and dark and it takes great courage to stand out against those ideologies in the way Angry Planet does and I hope through all the snowflake, conservative tears, the creators see the value in their work and continue to combat the spread of awful ideas. Well done folks! Hope perseveres.
