Introducing Net Assessment
What happens when a libertarian, a conservative hawk, and a constitutional powers specialist walk into a podcast studio? ‘Net Assessment’ happens. Welcome to the hottest new national security podcast hosted by Melanie Marlowe, Christopher Preble, and Bryan McGrath. This is a show about competing visions of America’s role in the world. In each episode, they will be discussing a featured article, airing their grievances, and giving attaboys. In the first episode of this bi-weekly series, our hosts introduce themselves and their hopes for this podcast. They tackle this episode’s featured article, Adrian Lewis’ “The Ivory Tower and Academic Ignorance of What the Armed Forces Actually Do,” published by Task & Purpose. They also discuss the role of American seapower and, of course, Twitter feuds. Don’t forget to subscribe to Net Assessment on your podcast app of choice.
