Fall is underway, the leaves are beginning to change color, and we're still in Afghanistan after 17 years. With a low unemployment rate (usual caveats apply), go figure that the Army is having a hard time meeting its recruiting and retention goals. However, with an enormous budget to spend on basically any and all dumb technology, there might be a solution around the corner: drones you can control with your brain.
This week, Nate and Francis hash it out over the weird defense tech that emerged from the AUSA conference, recent news that military recruitment is suffering, and much more. Additionally, you get a preview of a Patreon bonus episode featuring leftist USMC / Army veteran Carlo Valle, in which he and Nate discuss Honduras, post-service politics, and why Facebook is the bane of all veterans.
