Draft showdown -- Military movie characters: PODCAST

“You both already blew this draft.”

For the next few Defense Nerds Podcast episodes, Military Times Deputy Editor Leo Shane and Defense News Capitol Hill Bureau Chief Joe Gould take a break from the normal news format for a bit of summer nonsense: fantasy drafts on military topics.

First up this week is American military movie characters. The hosts are joined by producer Ben (Bob?) Murray to pick the four characters they’d want to build their armed forces around. Ben went for big shows of power, Leo went for leadership skills, and Joe went for … his own plan.

Listen here:

And help decide a winner by voting in the Twitter poll below:
