The Best Military-Based Podcasts

Radio speaker and military man to represent best military podcasts.

Those with a love of airsoft and airsoft guns may also find themselves drawn to military news and history. The two, of course, go hand-in-hand as airsoft games offer a less pressurised view of what a battlefield is like. Naturally, for those of us who partake in airsoft, we find ourselves drawn to weaponry developments, however bizarre they may be, and to the history of the guns and the heroes who went to war.

We find ourselves scrolling through countless articles and features online, watching documentaries online and putting our nose into a good book… but have you ever considered turning to podcasts for your fix?

If not, it’s about time you did. There are so many options to choose from when it comes to military-based podcasts now. And what makes it even better, is that you can enjoy a podcast while completing other tasks.

Here is a list of the ones you need to have on your radar:

 

War College

War College is a free podcast available for streaming on Player FM, with new weekly instalments. Each thirty-minute podcast is hosted by Matthew Golt and Jason Fields. The shows cover a wide variety of military-based topic items that focus on weapons systems and tactics that pose global threats and keep the world safe. Interestingly, this means the podcasts are varied, and while some of the podcasts may have a particular focus on America and its politics, others throw up some fascinating stories and insights from other places around the globe. Looking into military history, the current affairs and what the future of war may look like, this podcast is a perfect option for those who have a vested interest in the past, present and future of military warfare.

Examples of topics include the Russian Mafia, German housewives who stood up to Hitler, killer robots and why conspiracy theories never die.

We’re sold.

 

This is War

Hosted by Anthony Rosso, this free podcast is currently streaming on Player FM. This podcast looks at the individual stories of veterans and their life before, during and after their return from war. Paying particular attention to the Americans who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, however, there are stories from some veterans from other countries too.

What makes this podcast so intriguing is that it looks at not only life on the battlefield but the life, struggles and successes the soldiers have afterwards. This is for anyone who wants to understand more about what military men and women go through.

 

Global Recon

Another free podcast streaming on, you guessed it, Player FM. These podcasts range from 45 minutes in length to over two hours, dependant on the topic. It is hosted by John Hendricks, along with the help of Chantel Taylor, a former British Army Combat Medic who is credited as the first British woman to kill an enemy in combat. In these instalments, they talk about world events and interview special op agents from around the globe, as well as discussing tactical mindset and strategies, politics, history and medicine. Again, they look at the idea of weaponry updates and the future of war with a podcast that takes a look at the development of autonomous weapons.

This podcast has been going on for several years now, so if you have plenty of time on your hands, this should keep you occupied for a while!

 

National Defense

A podcast by the publishers of The National Defense Magazine, this American-based show looks at the technology behind the military, as well as the trends in the defence industry. We’re talking robotic jets and the use of VR on the battlefield as just some prime examples; we’re even treated to a podcast about the ‘Special Ops Top Ten Technologies’. Available for streaming on Player FM for free.

 

Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History

What podcast list would be complete without Dan Carlin’s host of history podcasts? Carlin’s selection of podcasts range in their topics, but the ones we want to highlight to you is the Blueprint for Armageddon series that focus on both World Wars, collating over 24 hours’ worth of media.

Learn about the strategies, the leading figures and also the lesser-known facts about the two most iconic wars in history.

You can access Dan Carlin’s podcasts on his website, ranging from free podcasts to small charges.

Let us know what you think of this selection. Alternatively, if there are others you feel are worthy of being on the list, tell us, and we’d be happy to put them on here too… after a listen, of course! Just as these guys are knowledgeable on their military history, we’re experts when it comes to airsoft, so, get in touch with your questions, and we’d be happy to help.
