The Podcast

You probably think you would never join the military. Think again. Every year thousands of young Americans surprise family and friends, signing long, legally-binding contracts with an organization they know very little about. Many of them join to pay for college or to escape their circumstances. But what happens when pride and optimism turn into regret and refusal to play a role in war?

Breaking Cadence: Insights From a Modern-Day Conscientious Objector presents perspectives about the military, the Iraq War and conscientious objection you have likely never heard before. The podcast, created and narrated by Rosa del Duca, is free, and available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Alexa, and Buzzsprout. You can also listen to the episodes using the players below.
