    Super grateful for all the clarity and creativity of this podcast. As a long-ago student of international relations, this one of my favorite national security podcasts. Laicie & team - thank you!

  • Real security

    I love Lacie Harley’s comprehensive take on what yields security— not merely or principally armaments, national intelligence, and stern brows, but environmental care and a world where there aren’t populations of materially desperate people. Smart, humane, and thoroughly researched.

  • Bait and switch on season 3

    The entirety of S3 ep. 1 focused on the disinformation ecosystem that's tearing down the trust on which democratic societies are built, and I was ready for an entire season of exploration of this. But at the last second, the host swerved the focus of this season security! Shame on you for this bait and switch. You're out of my playlist for this tactic.
