“This week, Francis did some damn journalism. He interviewed Joe Haldeman, author of the 1974 sci-fi masterpiece The Forever War, about his Army service and how it informed his writing (and about blowing things up with C4). We really hope you enjoy this.
Additionally, we’ve got an update on some of 2019’s newest war crimes stories, in which gamer and vaper Duncan Hunter weighs in on whether it should be okay to murder people or not.
This week’s bonus continues our ‘Is It Fascist?’ review series, with a special war film that you likely know and hate: Kathryn Bigelow’s 2008 Iraq War thriller The Hurt Locker. Nate’s wife Cynthia joins us to provide some film-critic civilian perspective.”
