I love Reaganism for its interviews and it’s intellectual conversations!! I cannot recommend it enough, it is one of my favorites!
Best defence content around
Roger is a master interviewer and gets more out of his subjects, especially the top shelf defense experts, than any other podcast out there.
He pulls great guests and manages to get them to open up in a unique way. Very thoughtful about life.
I always look forward to the next drop from Reaganism.
Please raise the volume
I can’t hear this episode. Even a maximum volume it is barely a whisper
