Theaters of War w/ Tom Secker and Matt Alford – Ep 122
Tom Secker and Matt Alford joins us to discuss their new project, Theaters of War, a documentary on the role of the U.S. military / national security state in censoring and creative control of Hollywood film and T.V. projects. While the documentary does follow some of the evidence discussed in National Security Cinema, Tom and Matt’s book from five years go, the documentary is an expansion and discussion of much more than was known when National Security Cinema was released. We also touch a bit on Top Gun: Maverick.

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
Fortress On A Hill is hosted, written, and produced by Chris ‘Henri’ Henrikson, Danny Sjursen, Keagan Miller, and Jovanni Reyes. https://bit.ly/3yeBaB9
