Episode 44: Around the World with Ash Carter

The 18th Airborne Corps Podcast

Ash Carter, the 25th American Secretary of Defense, joins 18th Airborne Corps Podcast host Joe Buccino from his office at the Harvard Kennedy School where he is the director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. Ash, who served as President Obama's final SecDef from 2015 to 2017, gives his view of the world from his Harvard perch. Joe and Ash discuss the global security environment today. The Secretary walks our host around the world, offering insight into Afghanistan, Russia, Iran, the Indo-Pacific, and lands in the United States.  Ash was among our Nation's most consequential public servants. Under his service at the top of the Pentagon, ISIL was defeated in Mosul, the Department of Defense opened combat roles to women and the United States entered the Iran nuclear deal. In this half hour discussion, Ash reflects on his legacy and remarks on the US military today. Finally, the two discuss some of Ash's predecessors at the Pentagon and why serving as US Secretary of Defense in the best job in the world. The 18th Airborne Corps Podcast is the official podcast of the U.S. Army’s XVIII Airborne Corps. Recorded on Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the program releases new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday.

Technology, Innovation, and Modern War – Class 1 - Ash Carter

Steve Blank Podcast

We just had our first week of our new national security class Technology, Innovation and Modern War. Given the tech-centricity of Stanford and Silicon Valley, Joe Felter, Raj Shah and I thought it was natural to design a class to examine the new military systems, operational concepts and doctrines that will emerge from 21st century technologies – Space, Cyber, AI & Machine Learning and Autonomy.

E043 SG talks about life and reads Ash Carter's book on Mike Nichols

Tea with sg

Continuing from yesterday's episode with Ash Carter, I start to read Ash's book about a half hour in. Otherwise I just talk about stuff. But listen to whole thing because I ramble but it all heads toward context for the reading. You can also totally just listen to the reading and enjoy it on its own.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/teawithsg/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/teawithsg/support

E042 Ash Carter - Life Isn't Everything (Mike Nichols book) / Airmail

Tea with sg

Ash (not on social media bc) and I go back to college, but both grew up in NYC, and our parents who ran in similar circles, had weekend houses in same tiny town nobody else knew about until the last few years. Ash is one of the few friends I have whom can speak fluently on a Manhattan that is pretty much gone, or left to really old people. He's been writing and editing for a great list of magazines over the last few years, and published his first book last year on filmmaker, playwright, comedian, etc. Mike Nichols. https://www.amazon.com/Life-Isnt-Everything-Nichols-Remembered-ebook/dp/B07MMLT51Q/ref=sr_1_1?crid=4PLD2444UHOA&dchild=1&keywords=mike+nichols+life+isn%27t+everything&qid=1592580308&sprefix=mike+nichols%2Caps%2C287&sr=8-1 He's an editor at https://airmail.news, which speaks to a segment of culture that does not give a shit what is trending on the internet, and enjoys picking up physical paper stained with ink. It's a smart venture, weekly wrap up of what's going on, with in depth articles on stuff we might care about, and Cazzie David. The best part is the arts calendar. You can search a city and get listings of all the high brow stuff going on. Once I woke up to a burst pipe in my apartment, looked at https://airmail.news/arts-intel, and got on a plane to the place with the most art I wanted to see that week. We're due for a dinner uptown in the new world. I first typed post-quar, but then realized that is not a thing.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/teawithsg/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/teawithsg/support
