What a Hell of a Way to Die

Dec 5, 2018

We’re a highly organized military podcast, and as such it only made sense that we’d throw out our episode plans and instead react to breaking news. After hearing about the death of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, we decided to discuss his legacy as the Iran-Contra pardoner and inaugurator of endless war in the Middle East. Francis notes that nothing could be more perfect than Trump — the apotheosis of the politics Bush enabled — being the head of the party.

We also deep-dive on the meaning of “helicopter rides” and why Erick Erickson should just flat out admit that he likes Hitler.

This week’s bonus for our Patreon subscribers is an interview with leftist Army and Marine Corps veteran Carlo Valle (@cvalle0625). He and Nate discuss Carlo’s experience growing up in Honduras, the 2009 coup in that country, and why he tries to keep the door open with his fellow veterans (even when they’re not exactly receptive to socialist politics). You can access that episode here:
