Award winning Defence podcast from BFBS.

Listen to the last episode:

Hundreds of Afghan interpreters, who worked with British forces in the country, remain stranded after the end of the international evacuation mission. In this week’s Sitrep, we hear from two of them, and an expert on the country, who got out as the Taliban advanced on Kabul, tells us why it’s so vital to restore humanitarian aid. The militia leader once dubbed Iraq’s most dangerous man is now a key powerbroker in the country — we get an update on elections to the Iraqi parliament, and what could happen next. Is war an essential part of being human? We hear from a historian who says we’re making a big mistake by not studying war and its effects. And we find out about new research to try to establish why military personnel are twice as likely as civilians to faint.
