BATTLE RYTHM PODCAST

September 16, 2020

In the 33rd episode of Battle Rhythm, Stef and Steve discuss commemorating 9/11, tensions between Greece and Turkey, the ongoing protests in Belarus, and their favourite outlets for security and defense analysis. We have an emerging scholar interview this week with LCdr R.G.S. Bell [25:00], discussing his paper “Canadian Maritime Defence Diplomacy: Canada’s Ambassadors at Sea.” which was short-listed for JCSP 46, the Brigadier-General George Bell Medal in recognition of commitment and excellence in military writing as displayed by a student on the Joint Command and Staff Programme. Our feature interview is with Sam Jackson [31:45], Assistant Professor in the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security, and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany. This week’s RnR segment [52:45], where we will provide some levity in these trying times with entertainment reviews and suggestions.

This week’s RnR picks:

1. Peter Krause and Ora Szekely’s "Stories from the Field"
2. TV: "The Boys"
3. TV: "Behind the scenes: 'Star Wars: The Mandalorian'"

Guest Biographies:

He has also been a visiting researcher with VOX-pol, an EU-funded network of excellence on violent online political extremism. Dr. Jackson has several lines of research. He primarily studies far-right extremism in America, particularly anti-government extremism. His second line of research investigates issues related to extremism online and responses to extremism online. In a third area, he examines behavior on social media platforms, particularly political activism (for example, around the politics of guns in America) or activity in the context of conflicts and crises (for example, during hurricanes). He also develops methods and open-source tools to analyze internet-based data. His research has appeared in Terrorism and Political Violence, Proceedings of the International Conference on Social Media & Society, and George Washington University’s Program on Extremism. His research has also received media coverage, for example in The Washington Post, Vox, and The Minneapolis Star Tribune.
