Ep. 8: Avocado Toast

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

We have a special show for you this week! Once again we have Jack Mandaville on the show, only this time he's with us in-studio (he appeared on Ep.2). Jack was in town visiting California to film some stuff with Vet TV, so we got him on the show to talk about his Marine career, and 3 Iraq deployments. Jack describes himself as an ex-marine and Netflix aficionado with terrible self-esteem. He’s also a writer for Duffel Blog, star of the film “Range 15,” and the creator of many hilarious videos on Instagram and Facebook. Follow Jack on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. All three of us end up sort of going off the rails and telling war stories, boot camp stories, and whatever else. But it's actually pretty fun. We also discuss the government shutdown — which ended up being resolved the day after we recorded this show — and the military-social media culture and how it has changed over time. And at one point, we have a spirited discussion over avocado toast. I don't care what Max says. That stuff is delicious. Please do us a huge favor: leave us a review and subscribe to the podcast with your favorite podcast app, so you will be notified of future episodes. If you’re on Twitter, you can find Max at @TLCplMax or Paul at @paulszoldra. You can also follow our official show Twitter feed @afteractionshow, Instagram, and our Facebook page here. If you have comments or suggestions, you can email us at afteractionshow [at] gmail.com. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Paul at paul [at] duffelmedia.net.

We're back! Happy New Year, everybody. In the first episode of season 2 (are we doing seasons now?), Max and Paul catch up on what they did over the holidays. For Max, that meant a trip to London to hang out with his wife's in-laws, and for Paul, that meant meeting his girlfriend's parents for the first time on Christmas Eve. Fortunately, he made a great first impression by dropping roasted potatoes all over her mother's floor. The big topic of this show taking the majority of our time is the new Star Wars ...

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 de...

Ep. 4: The Great Green Weenie
This show is a little bit different. 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...
