#100 | Make Plans, Build Skill Sets, Cultivate Connections (Solo)

This is episode #100 of the podcast. Incredible. I read a letter from a listener and respond to it. I express how grateful I am for the support I've received for this project, and I reiterate the purpose and what I aim for with Last Born In The Wilderness.

For this episode, I go solo.

#56 | On The Brink: Setting The Stage For Nuclear Conflict

As the tensions escalate between the US and North Korea, it's important to take a step back and look at what's really at stake here. 

Are we on the edge of nuclear conflict? If so, how has the US media played into this escalation?

#54 | Guided By The Beauty Of Our Weapons: Trump's Escalation In Syria

April 6th 2017, President Trump ordered an assault on Syrian government targets, launching 59 Tomahawk missiles in the first direct and major attack against Bashar Assad's government. The implications are vast and frighting. Seeing as Russia is a very close ally with the Syrian government, and has been aiding the government militarily for over a year now, it's not hard to fathom why direct confrontation with the Assad Regime might be a decision that leads us further down a path towards nuclear war.
