Excellent source for leadership and life lessons in the profession of arms

As a fresh commissionee in the Corps, I constantly wait for new episodes featuring members from all across the force on how to embody leadership in a constantly evolving environment. Each perspective offers a different lens on how to lead young Marines (or other service members) and be led yourself. In my experience, MIL is far and away one of the best podcasts out there for leaders striving to improve their craft.

Great Podcast for leadership lessons

Great discussions for young leaders to listen to and ponder. Please keep this going. Can't wait for more content. Recommend an episode regarding leadership with Scott Huesing, writer of Echo in Ramadi.
