A lot of really great guests and very good questions are asked showing a real interest in the subjects. As a history nerd, I am impressed by how much Marshall and Sagar know about and bring up nuggets of history even though I don’t always agree with their analysis. I don’t agree with plenty of their (or their guests’) opinions, but I enjoy hearing them and the way they discuss them.
One minor quibble. I’ve heard a couple of episodes discussing the War in Iraq and IED’s and Marshall keeps saying IFP’s when he really means EFP’s (it stands for Explosively Formed Penetrator and is a shaped charge for penetrating armor). I’m not sure what he thinks IFP stands for and I’m not sure why his guests haven’t corrected him, maybe they’re too polite or think they’re just hearing him wrong, but if EFP’s come up again I hope he refers to them correctly (and maybe explains what they are so listeners aren’t just getting Army acronyms).
