Ep. 5: Charms Or Not

After Action with Max & Paul

After Action with Max and Paul is a podcast about national security, military life, and other random bulls—t. Hosted by Maximilian Uriarte, the creator of Terminal Lance, and Paul Szoldra, the creator of Duffel Blog.

After Action with Max & Paul

Max and Paul kick off this pre-Veterans Day weekend show with a heated debate over what is better: jalapeño cheese spread or chocolate peanut butter... which then devolves into a too-long discussion about MREs and how the "old Corps" had to eat a bunch of crap. Then of course, by popular demand, we discuss Bowe Bergdahl and his recent sentencing. His court-martial finally came to an end, with Bergdahl receiving a dishonorable discharge but no prison time. There's also mention of the Serial podcast, which dedicated its second season to the Bergdahl affair. We also talk about the Marine Corps Birthday (Nov. 10, 1775) and some of the myths around the Corps, and stuff you shouldn't ask veterans, like "did you ever kill anyone?" Note: We'll be on an extended hiatus because of upcoming holidays and both of us doing some traveling. You can expect another show sometime in December, before Christmas.

On this episode, Max and Paul focus on answering questions sent in by listeners.  We discuss our thoughts on the civilian-military divide, which leads to Paul's hatred of an infamous meme with a totally shitty underlying message. Then there's the question of what kind of military job we'd choose if we went back into the service, what we think of civilians reading Duffel Blog or Terminal Lance, and what our opinion is of Blade Runner 2049 (hint: It's awesome). The show do...
