I love the podcasts, and have been a paying customer for awhile, but last month all of my private URL podcasts stopped working even when I unfollowed and went back into my account and readded them. After a couple of weeks of this I tried to report the issue through Apple Podcasts and nothing got...Read full review »

The best podcast for immersive updates on all things defense related.

24th March 2024 on Ukrainian limitations is great breakdown. Recent visitor gives breakdown on what he thinks the key issues are impacting Ukrainian go forward. It’s good stuff so far.

Thank you for this podcast. Very educational. Please talk more about the future of Europe.

It’s genuinely shocking at how wrong they’ve been about basically everything, and how unfazed they are by that wrongness. Bloodthirstyness for the sake of bloodnthirstyness, masked by above average tactical knowledge. Blood on their hands, frankly.

Quit both-siding who is holding up aid to Ukraine! Republicans are holding aid up!

Great stuff. Enjoy listening to your program.

I listen to all the episodes related to the war in Ukraine. I have always found it a very good resource for my understanding of the military and political situation of the moment. Everyone who wonders what might happen if Russia wins this war should listen to these podcasts and at least they will...Read full review »

Politics and war don’t mix - your guests need to stop inserting American politics into world events. It’s a false narrative and total disinformation. So many of your SME’s are good at talking, but not much beyond that. Disappointing and the reason I won’t be renewing.

Your guests for the Gaza show especially the female was completely insane.

Joyce Karam is both a Hamas spokesman with her repeated unsubstantiated (and unchallenged) accusations of Israeli war crimes, and a colonialist. Prognosticating on all her favorite options for what will rule Gaza after Hamas, not once did she consider that the Palestinians themselves have agency,...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to your podcast for a bit must say you toe the lines of the western world legacy media. So many lives have been lost in the UK inside. They are now just chucking people in vans to send them to the front line with three weeks of training. Also all the military aid has cost the...Read full review »

Unrefined propaganda
AloofGoose via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/01/23
Hi Ryan, Thank you so much for your Show! It is an absolute pleasure to listen to you every week. I was particularly interested in you announcing a show about German security policy. As a German veteran and long time follower of German foreign and security policy I guess I share most of your...Read full review »

Lol the guest on the FISA episode thinks renewing FISA is the most important thing to americas. No dummy high taxes, getting out of the war/cost of Ukraine, and housing are what we care about most. Avoid this propaganda podcast advocating for more government surveillance.

Richly informative, expertly curated, well hosted, and altogether indispensable.
IskReh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/04/23
Listening to every episode in the beginning but now i check in every now and then; very little in the way of new information/ opinions that i havent heard elsewhere; both guys are well informed but rarely offer unique or deeper analysis; constantly hedging their bets and trying to upsell their...Read full review »

This is without a doubt the most insightful, informed and balanced review/analysis on the Ukraine War.
pra333 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/13/23
From decent and informative military commentary to all of a sudden uneven politics with the innovation episode. Recommend steering clear unmitigated right wing political opinions. At a minimum maybe have voices that even each other out?
QqqZzzaaa12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/16/23
This has been a great show until this latest episode when they dipped into partisan politics and policy. I’d like the show to keep the course away from politics and cultural hot points and stay “centered” on the core of the show.

I learned of this show from my son in the USAF. I started listening to it when I visited him. I find it very informative, impartial, and with up to date valuable information on the War in Ukraine, but also on other potential threats of war in the World, and to the USA. The guest speakers are...Read full review »

As a Brit with limited knowledge of Latin America, the latest pod was really interesting in its insights about the challenges within the region.
Shimizu18 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/26/23
After a few episodes you realize that War on the Rocks just recycles the same guests and doesn’t offer any insight into what it is reporting.
Zaptrax via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/23
Just listened to 3 eps regarding Ukrainian war. I think this is possibly the best analysis I’ve heard of the situation. A bunch of people who can string ideas and thoughts together in coherent sentences and explain context without stepping on each other, without “clever” interjections attempting...Read full review »

Great expertise on strategy, the current situation, things happening in Ukraine. Kudos and thanks a lot to all involved!

Always chewing in the background.

I enjoy Michael’s analysis and input. I largely agree with him that “a” specific type of arm does not make much of a difference in a war. However, HIMARS had an outsize impact. Without HIMARS, Russia would have kept gaining ground and there would have been no grain deal either. So, in my opinion,...Read full review »

I listen to every show. Keep up the insightful work team.

Please have a dedicated episode with the leading intel expert as to the Wagner Group. This Group must be hunted down like the hyenas they are and annihilated by any means possible ASAP. There are a few cases in this World where the ends do justify the means and the Wagner Group is one of them

Interesting insights from the smartest people
Barks787 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/03/23
It’s very worthwhile to listen to this podcast through the lens of current events and especially now Ukrainian, but perhaps even more interesting to go back a year or two and hear what was discussed. We who listen to these particular foreign policy topics because we want to have a better chance...Read full review »

This is the perfect choice for anyone interested in learning more about international relations! Each episode is informative and enjoyable.
Andieo1997 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/15/22
Fantastic analysis and commentary, one of my fav podcasts to keep up to date, especially on the war in Ukraine. Keep up the great work guys
Calacode via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/27/22
WotR used to be hit-or-miss, with some very dull episodes interspersed with excellent discussions. However, since the invasion of Ukraine, it has become an invaluable source of information. Elsewhere, there are far too many ill-informed military pundits and lazy journalists recycling stories...Read full review »

Great incisive analysis on the latest developments in Ukraine.
YRTS88 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/05/22
This podcast is an exceptional resource in folllowing the Ukraine war effort. It provided expert analysis on a timely basis. Hats off to the War on the Rocks team.
Frabkster via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/29/22
There’s nothing else like this out there. Listening to people who actually know what they’re talking about is so refreshing. It’s scholarly but accessible. My only complaint is that there aren’t more shows on Ukraine war with Michael Kofman.
ImDarthNilus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/22
This podcast has the detail and the quality of analysis that’s missing from other similar podcasts. Absolutely fantastic. If you could do a series of shows about NATO member countries actual force structure and readiness that would be fantastic.
Phil G-S via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/17/22
This is one of the best podcast on military affairs, strategic concerns, and the conduct of war. They spend a lot of time on Ukraine these days, but they also cover other subjects. I just wished they published more often.
JDelage via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/22
Just expertly done
Lance eats pie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/22
Can’t recommend WOTR enough. Outstanding podcast with thoughtful guests that are experts in their fields. As a lay person interested in foreign policy, conflict and history, the podcast delivers clear concepts and explains their positions in ways that non experts can easily understand.

5 Stars for great content and for challenging aspects of long-held and mistaken assumptions on 2A.

Great information and conversation. I think it makes me smarter. Or, at least I know more. Keep up the great work!
J.R. Hoeft via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/22
kofman episode was lacking substance. It sounds like he’s basing most of his information from AFU. Highly suspect claim that Russian has been attritioned. There are hundreds of thousands of combat ready troops plus national guard plus Contracted troops: Wagner, Chechens brigades too. I would...Read full review »

By far the best show on Ukraine war. Wish the show would run longer and more often. 2 hours per episode and at least twice a week.
