This week on the program: • We talk about drones, the national security bureaucracy, and the American way of war (1:49) with Loren DeJonge Schulman of the Center for a New American Security — and co-host of the Bombshell podcast over at War on the Rocks. • Then (21:49) we’ll check in on the "Houthi war machine" in the mountains and valleys of Yemen. Dr. Michael Knights of the Washington Institute is back from a visit to the conflict’s front lines. And he joins us to paint a startling picture of a rapidly-evolving 21st-century insurgency. • And we’ll end (40:20) with a discussion on the prospects for nuclear war between the U.S. and North Korea. Dr. Jeffrey Lewis of the Middlebury Institute for International Studies speaks with us about his new speculative novel, “The 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Nuclear Attacks Against the United States.” Extra reading: • Loren's report on U.S. drone use can be accessed here https://www.defenseone.com/ideas/2018/08/trumps-secret-war-terror/150448/ • Find Michael's recent report on the Houthis here https://ctc.usma.edu/houthi-war-machine-guerrilla-war-state-capture/ • And Jeffrey's novel can be purchased on Amazon here https://amzn.to/2LIihij
