A Conversation With Sean McFate on Mercenaries, Private Armies, and the Future of War

Sean McFate is the guest on this week's episode of the podcast known as The Chauncey DeVega Show.

Sean is an expert on international and military affairs. He is also the author of the book The Modern Mercenary: Private Armies and What They Mean for World Order. Sean McFate is also a very fun, smart, and insightful conversation partner as he and Chauncey DeVega dialogue about the present/future of warfare, the old/new rise of mercenaries, popular culture, foreign affairs, and the changing same that is war across the centuries.

This episode was great fun. How often does one get to ask an expert on military affairs about the movie Predator, and which military branch (or not) did Arnold Schwarzenegger's group of commandos belong to?

In this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also talks about his apparently quite upsetting and controversial recent essay on toxic white masculinity, gets too excited by his Shasta root beer soda, talks about the White Right's human freak show obsession with "cuckservatives", and gives some advice to a sad soul on Reddit who is apparently in distress about his cuckolding predilections and obsessions.

This very full of goodness episode also includes an update about the ign't cluster in Chauncey DeVega's neighborhood, and the Sherlock Holmes-like mystery that has developed during these last few weeks.

The Chauncey DeVega Show is available on Itunes and at Stitcher as well. Please update your Itunes and other information so that you continue to "subscribe" to the show.
