SSI Live Podcast Series — Latest Episodes

Released 26 January 2018.
SSI Live 078 - The New National Defense Strategy — Earlier this month, the Trump administration released its first National Defense Strategy (NDS). What's new about this strategy and what does it tell us about the direction of U.S. defense strategy and policy? What does the new NDS get right, and where does it fall short? SSI Live host John R. Deni sat down with SSI colleagues Chris Bolan and Nate Freier to discuss these questions and more. Listen below or click here to download.

Released 8 January 2018.
SSI Live 077 - Multi-Domain Battle and the Pacific Theater — In gross or raw potential, the United States remains the world’s leading global military power. At present though, American power is either dormant in or ill-adapted to many if not most of the world’s most important competitive spaces. American military position and influence are most immediately under duress in the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) Area of Responsibility. In PACOM, enduring U.S. defense objectives and the nation's most active, complex, and dangerous multi-domain security challenges converge. To discuss these issues and more, SSI host Dr. John R. Deni sat down with the SSI's Prof. Nate Freier. Listen below or click here to download.

Released 17 October 2017.
SSI Live 076 - Decertification of the Iranian Nuclear Deal — On 13 October, President Trump announced his intention not to certify Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) and threatening to leave the nuclear deal altogether if it was not amended in various ways. Why did the President announce this? Meanwhile, there are reports that some of his senior advisors opposed this move -- what were their counterarguments? More broadly, what is the outlook with regard to Iran's nuclear program? To discuss these issues and more, SSI host Dr. John R. Deni sat down with the SSI's Middle East expert, Dr. Chris Bolan.
