In this episode of Battle Rhythm, Stef reveals she has been named Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel (HLCol) of the Princess of Wales’ Own Regiment. Discussing the news, Steve and Stef ponder the significance of Canada not being invited to join the British fleet amidst tensions with Iran. They go on to discuss Canada's efforts to replace the F18 as well as Turkey’s procurement of Russian air defence systems and its implications for NATO. They also analyze and offer their thoughts on the Heyder Beattie Sexual Misconduct settlement. This episode features listener questions with responses from Steve and Stef. The Emerging Scholar segment is with Meaghan Shoemaker who discusses her research on how women’s deployment decisions and motivations are gendered. In the feature interview, Stef speaks with Dr. Sylvia Bashevkin about her award-winning book Women as Foreign Policy Leaders. Finally, in Steve's Peeves, Steve discusses the problem of sexual misconduct in the US armed forces and the role of Congress on addressing it.
