Forever Wars: Resilience and Readiness


November 27, 2019

In the 12th episode of the Battle Rhythm Podcast, Steve and Stef discuss WIIS-Paris, France and the Arctic and of course Trump. For our feature interview, we head back to the summer when Steve interviewed Chaira Ruffa [25:30] at the ERGOMAS conference in Lisbon. This week’s Emerging Scholar interview is with Rebecca Jensen [19:00] who discusses her research on operational adaption as a dissertation fellow at Marine Corps University. In Steve’s Peeves [48:10], Steve shares some of his thoughts on silencing student criticism of China on campus.
