Unpretentious, quality content on modern warfare

This is the first podcast I've gotten totally hooked on, to the point that I eagerly anticipate new episodes each week. Jake is just a normal, down to earth, likeable guy who has experience in conflict journalism. I've learned so much about what's going on in the world, not only from this podcast, but also from following some of the podcast guests on Twitter afterward. If you have any interest at all in foreign affairs, or just good/interesting journalism, I highly recommend listening. It's not overproduced, and it takes the format of a no frills interview with super interesting guests, sometimes on topics getting a lot of attention like Syria, and other times on topics getting less attention, like West Papua. Give it a download.

Trustyworthy and Pertinent

The quality of guests that Jake brings on is consistently high. Not only are they high-quality, they also reach across the political spectrum and provide opposing views. Jake is a great host, and he doesn’t appear driven to support any given political ideology, he’s great about allowing his guests to speak their piece. He’s also consistently the first podcaster to deliver on the ground reports from big situations. Lastly, his music selection is great, and I sometimes find myself starting a new episode just to hear the intro.

Excellent coverage of what’s too often neglected

Jake brings much needed attention to the world’s many conflicts and presents stories with passion and empathy. Definitely a must listen for anyone with an interest in militaries, revolutions, and what needs to be resolved for there to be a more peaceful world.
