NEW PODCAST: Fear and Loathing in DC

RSS

Remember the days when AvWeek had podcasts? Well, we're back and happy to talk about things that fly in air and space!


Aviation Week Executive Editor James Asker moderates a discussion among those of us in the trenches (sorry -- Army term) covering the Pentagon's '15 budget request. 

I had the pleasure of taking some time out of this hectic week to chat with two of my colleagues: Michael Bruno, our newly named Senior Business Editor, and Michael Fabey, our Naval Editor, about this interesting budget. 

We talk about all of the tidbits of interest -- blood flowing through the Pentagon floors from gutted fleets, a missile defense plus up, is U-2 seriously dead, and the Navy cutting the cord on the Super Hornet. And, perhaps more fun, we opine about why a lot of this could be met with little enthusiasm on the Hill, setting up for another year of institutional paralysis in Washington.

Finally, hold out to the end to hear our Missed Approaches: three things we found to be wacky, under-reported or happening below the radar. Is there a looming leadership crisis in the Navy? Will the newly unveiled Air Force satellite -- designed to spy on other satellites -- restart an old debate about military uses of space?
