Serious People on Serious Isses not taking themselves too Seriously

This is a great weekly roundtable on issues in National Security, Homeland Security and Foreign Policy. The participants are smart, witty and people I would like to know. You feel comfortable sitting in on their conversations each week.

The only thing is now I wish this came out daily, because I need some irreverant reality from smart people every day, not just once a week.

Good series on national security with a sense of humor!

RatSec, populated by people with whom I usually disagree on security matters (Both Witteses, Hennessy but not so much Harris) is mandatory for me, as is Lawfare blog. They are serious people, well-versed in their topic, and able to inject humor into a subject that is dry as a vermouth-less martini. Listen to them, they will keep your opposing mind sharper, or at least they do mine.

Intelligent conversation

This podcast lives up to its name -- entertaining but very rational and intelligent. The hosts are professional and exceedingly well informed, and the topics are diverse and -- happily -- not the same ones being discussed by every pundit out there.
