David McBride's strategy secrets.
🎧 PODCAST GUESTS: David McBride, Dan Ilic + Lewis Hobba
G’day Fearmongers —
As we head into the long weekend known as Australian Halloween, ANZAC Day, I thought we should chat with a former solider who represents Australians at their best.
David McBride is up for a jail sentence of ‘UNLIMITED YEARS’ after he blew the whistle on astonishing accounts of misconduct and warcrimes by Australian special Forces in Afghanistan.
He did this six years ago — 2017!
He’s been in legal limbo ever since.
But now he’s forced the Australian Defence Force into court in November, and will have his moment to show he was just, and right to release the information he did.
In this conversation McBride and I chat about:
Tactics and strategy in the court room.
If media will be allowed inside his trial.
Why he's losing weight
How he finds joy in this very stressful time.
And his laugh — is it real?
This episode is followed up by one of favourite live shows from last year, our live show on Australian Secrecy on stage at the Festival Of Dangerous Ideas.
It's one of our best — and a reminder around ANZAC Day that there are Some soliders who are fighting the good fight, that need our support.
