Covert Contact: The Blogs of War National Security Podcast

I am trying to do something a little bit different with Covert Contact. My goal is to produce a program that showcases complex and meaningful security topics in a manner that resonates across the entire spectrum. I have many diplomats, journalists, technologists, intelligence and military professionals in the audience (which I am thankful for) but I want the casual observer of international affairs, intelligence, or technology to find the program accessible, thought-provoking, and engaging as well.

We’re going to go off in unexpected directions, wrestle with big problems, and struggle to gain a true understanding of what is happening around us. Along the way I’ll be engaging diplomats, soldiers, technologists, spies, authors, artists, researchers, and journalists so that we can look at issues from diverse perspectives. I will share my opinions but my goal isn't to tell you want to think. I want to spark new thoughts and ideas.

Although equipment and hosting costs have been significant I am not currently planning to ask for financial support. Many listeners did make contributions early on however, and I deeply appreciate their support:
