Danny and Derek welcome back Michael Brenes, associate director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy and lecturer in history at Yale University, to discuss the undisputed greatest use of taxpayer dollars in our great nation’s history: the F-35. They discuss its war-fighting purpose, Lockheed’s business strategy with the jet, the effect of consolidation and privization on the arms industry, and more.
