The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny and Henri, two Army combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.

Advocates not voting
First time listener 11/23/18. Lots of interesting ideas and then the host exclaims, I don’t vote. I refuse to consent to any of this by voting, or something close to that.
You lost me at refusing to vote.
It’s unbelievably irresponsible to espouse this view to your listenership.
One of the best foreign policy podcast
These guys are very well spoken and give great context on U.S foreign policy.
Fortress on a Hill
Your interview with Ben Fountain was the best episode yet. Each show has linked me to something or someone I didn’t know was out there. Thank you for bringing more light to writers and topics like this. Excellent work!
