    Unraveling 25: Discipline & Punish

    In episode #22, we discussed the pivotal year 1917, when the United States and the Soviet Union began their entry onto the stage of global power politics, and the tide decisively turned in the First World War. In this episode, we continue our journey through the 20th century with a conversation about how The Great War ended - or did it? - and about the ethics and consequences of kicking a downed opponent in the ribs.

    Unraveling 22: 1917

    Unraveling 22: 1917

    "There are decades when nothing happens, and there are weeks when decades happen." -V.I. Lenin

    This is the first of a series of discussions about critical years in the 20th century. As the First World War entered its 4th year, the mighty German army had the Entente powers on the ropes. But two men who started the year 1917 uninvolved with the Great War would soon make decisions that would determine the outcome, and shape geopolitics for the rest of the century.

    Unraveling 20: WALL-E Nationalism

    In this episode, were joined by James Poulos, executive editor of American Mind, a publication of the Claremont Institute, to discuss his article on the recent testimony of Army General Mark Milley regarding the teaching of Critical Race Theory at West Point. However, we end up hardly mentioning General Milley's hearing, and instead ponder the possibility that we're headed for a digital apocalypse. Also, Jocko somehow gets Darryl to shill for North Korea.

Great podcast

Jocko and Darryl are a great combo. It’s so nice to listen to men like this when we’re surrounded by so much other nonsense. I found Darryl’s Martyr Made Twitter account recently, which led me here, and I have been devouring all the recent episodes here.
