This is a new podcast that aims to provoke debate and discourse around what shapes and influences the morale and motivations of combatants in war. It seeks to answer the eternal question; what makes people fight (or not) in armed conflicts?

It will explore all types of military force and conflict from non-state actors in asymmetrical campaigns to uniformed personnel in standing armies fighting in conventional battles.

Season 1 is recorded and will start broadcasting in January 2022.

Interviews are sought with individuals for Season 2. I am keen to interview anyone with an interest and expertise in combat motivation and morale. They can be from any background in include multi-disciplinary experts including policymakers, service personnel, former combatants, sociologists, psychologists and historians.
