Breaking Down Barriers

This podcast was insightful. I love that Rosa chose to be brave and interview her members. They are all authentic in their answers to Rosa’s questions, even if their answers stung. Rosa is transparent about her decision to be a conscientious objector, and her views on the war. Can’t wait to listen to more!

Great Listen

This is such an interesting podcast. After listening to her sister talk about what she really thought about her becoming a CO I was even more into listening because you can see that she is not only finding people that are going to tell her that what she did was right. This was an all-around view, thought provoking podcast that I would definitely recommend. I also was impressed with the production quality. You can tell that she is passionate about the product that she is putting out.

Ethics in Conversation

This is a good podcast to listen to if you are interested in the ethical philosophy that drives both public and official opinion on the justification of war, and different opinons on how views of the U.S. military should be discussed and engaged with in society. Overall a very interesting addition to Rosa's podcasts.
