Ep. 9: Space Force!; BAE Systems CEO Jerry DeMuro; Border security, Trump, and more.
Welcome to our podcast about the news, strategy, tech, and business trends defining the future of national security.
Here’s what we’re talking about this week (recorded June 21, 2018):
- The president renewed his call for a whole new branch of the military, the Space Force; we’ll check in on how that’s coming;
- And the military is sending its lawyers down to Texas to help sort through the whole children separated from their family dynamic that’s led U.S. news this week;
- North Korea has selected a test site it wants to destroy as part of step-by-step negotiations with the U.S. to rid the country of its nuclear weapons;
