Now that Trump has been sworn in it’s more important than ever to seek out valuable and credible information sources. In that spirit I suggest the following podcasts to subscribe to and prioritize to stay up to date and well-informed on current and emerging national security, domestic and foreign policy issues.
Arms Control Wonk – The nuclear weapons, arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation podcast. Companion to the popular Arms Control Wonk blog (www.armscontrolwonk.com). Hosted by Jeffrey Lewis & Aaron Stein. – Arms control experts discussing timely current events topics in the areas of and with the benefit of their expertise. Great for dispelling misinformation and pointing out bad reporting.
Lawfare – Companion podcast to the Lawfare blog, often with talks or panel discussions on national security issues.
Rational Security – A weekly discussion of national security and foreign policy matters hosted by Shane Harris of the Daily Beast and featuring Brookings senior fellows Tamara Cofman Wittes and Benjamin Wittes. – I often disagree significantly with the views put forth here but they’re always intelligent and well-informed and listening and engaging with the views is always beneficial.
