[FIXED AUDIO]. A panel of leftist veterans and DSA members(ft. Mitch, Spencer, Marcos, and James) joins us to talk about serving in American imperial war, the Afghanistan withdrawal, the "hero worship" that American culture has pushed for 20 years, and what all this actually does to a person. Good words here for veterans, active duty servicepeople, and civilians. This episode gets emotionally heavy with talk of heavy topics like trauma and suicide, so take care. - If you need this number, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) - About Face: Veterans Against the War - https://aboutfaceveterans.org/ The DSA Veterans Working Groups - https://www.dsausa.org/working-groups/veterans-working-group/ Combat Obscura - a documentary assembled from Marine-shot footage in Afghanistan - http://combatobscura.oscilloscope.net/ -- Pod recs: - Eyes Left - https://soundcloud.com/eyesleft @eyesleft What A Hell of a Way to Die - https://soundcloud.com/hellofawaytodie - @hellofawaytodie - Help us make the show! www.patreon.com/givingthemic - Find us on Twitter: www.twitter.com/givingthemic - Questions/comments/suggestions for great local Korean food: givingthemic@gmail.com - facebook.com/givingthemic/ - - Main theme by The Mysterious Breakfast'r Cereal on SoundCloud @chiptheme - - All items trademarked and copyright their respective owners.
