Entertaining, insightful and actionable! 👏
Whether you’re well established as someone innovating in the global security and aerospace industry, or just getting started as a catalyst for changing the status quo - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Vago does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of navigating the ever changing geopolitical dynamics affecting security - from leaders who’ve actually walked the path. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
Lots of fun
If you want to hear typical beltway hypocrisy, listen to these folks opine about “truth telling.” It is a great reminder that falsehood and self-serving rhetoric is normative in Washington.
Still a long way to go.
I thought I found a real informative and professional aerospace podcast but these guys need to lose the self indulgence and report news. Let us decide our opinions. If I wanted to listen to two people bash Trump (sept 9), I’d listen to cnn or any other of the 1000’s of podcasts of liberal rhetoric. Cmon guys. Rise above it. Too much going on in the world to be unoriginal.
