My students often ask me which podcasts I listen to on national security, foreign policy, military and strategic studies and international affairs. I have some favourites, but decided to crowd-source this question on Twitter. Below is a list of podcasts you may find interesting if you can't get enough international security! I've grouped them into some loose categories, but there is obviously a lot of overlap. Please let me know if I have missed any!

 

Oh! And don't forget to check out the new podcast by myself and Professor Craig Forcese at University of Ottawa on Canadian national security policy and law - A Podcast Called Intrepid
