I have been reading the blog for years. Just started the podcast and my very high expectations were fully met. Discussions of arms control and nonproliferation matters on the internet tend to be either journalistic -- shallow and allegedly neutral -- or agenda-driven -- more informed, but ideologically based. ACW is such a fantastic resource because it is very, very well informed, but its primary purpose is not mot make ideological (or political) points. Not that the hosts don't have opinions, but they separate them from their analysis. It's very informative about these issues. It's also, frankly, a pleasure, to hear people who obviously have a real enthusiasm for these topics mull them over. Some … many … almost all academics come across as stuffy and pretentious. These two actually sound like they are having fun, which makes everything better. But the bottom line is that they are very well informed, thoughtful, and skeptical observers of the world of arms control, and anyone who has any interest at all in the topic should be subscribed to this podcast.
