Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Ed Carpenter (United States Marine Corps, Duck of Minerva)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Ed talk about women in the military. They rebut the argument that women can’t serve in the US Infantry because it’s full of testosterone-fueled brutes. Rob and Ed turn to the the Marine Corps’ efforts to recruit gay people. They then move to a conversation about Ed’s book, which investigates the problem of the “warrior ethos” in the military services. This leads to a discussion of Iraq War III, and the best tactics for fighting ISIS. Finally, they explore what the US Army can learn from Burning Man.
