The first episode of this miniseries offers me and my cohost Army Major Will Wright to explain how this podcast came about. We discuss why we think the civil-military gap is so important as part of understanding both US national security and civil society. We also provide a bit of an overview of the miniseries.

Please note that our host Will and many of our guests throughout the series are active duty military officers. The views presented in these podcasts are exclusively those of the individuals and do not necessarily represent the views of the US Government, the DoD, or any of its component organizations.

    Great podcast you two! As someone whose only experience with the military in high school was my American History teacher (who happened to be a survivor of the Kent State Massacre), I had no idea what normal civil servitude actually meant. That did change in college once I met ROTC cadets, then married one. There’s still definitely a disconnect when we return to visit family since they live in regions with no major military installations. I appreciate the podcast attempt to bridge that knowledge gap, and thank both of you for serving, in the Peace Corp as well as the Army.

    Your should check in with our ROTC units on campus and the Yale Veterans Association for more input on the civ-mil divide as well as the Ivy League Veterans summits on the topic.

    Interesting topics! Looking forward to hearing the next podcast. And, I agree with Will, as taxpayers and citizens we need to be informed and think critically about our military.
