COIN Podcasts

Here are links to a couple of recent podcasts discussing counterinsurgency and Iraq that are worth listening to. In topic 2 of the Kilcullen podcast is a very interesting discussion of the importance of narrative which I think is relevant not only for counterinsurgency but can also be applied to domestic politics. For example, one of the challenges we have today is developing an inspiring narrative of America that can appeal to the large variety of immigrants from different backgrounds, but that is a topic for another post.

Blog Week in Review's Austin Bay interview with David Kilcullen.

Powerline's Northern Alliance radio show interview with Lt. Col. John Nagl.

I agree. I listened to them both and thought they were very good.
