This is one of the best podcasts I’ve listened to in quite some time. Not only does Greg Walker give a first hand account of David Baez, a Nicaraguan who emigrated to America, enlisting in the Army and joining Special Forces, to later defecting to the Sandinistas as a result of a moral question over the murder of his father.

Its a pretty incredible and simultaneously tragic story, interspersed with critical truths about insurgency and counterinsurgency warfare. This is a must-listen for many reasons, and one I’ve found myself listening to over and over.
