OTH Podcast 3: The Evolving Character of Risk in the Emerging Security Environment

Welcome to OTH’s third podcast! For this episode, we turn our attention to the evolving character of risk in the emerging security environment. In several of our articles and podcast discussions, and indeed in conversations across the national security community, it is evident that risk is a central and increasingly challenging feature to contend with. There is a growing sense that the changing character of the competition-space is also changing the character of risk and, perhaps, how it should be approached. Joining us to help think through this is another great group of experts:

  • Nate Freier, Senior Fellow at the Strategic Studies Institute, Associate Professor of National Security Studies at the Army War College, and Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies
  • Jeff Reilly, an operational and strategic design expert, Director Future Warfare Concepts at Air Command & Staff College, and also director of its Multi-Domain Operational Strategist program
  • Tom Flounders, an Army Armor officer and author of multiple articles on re-conceptualizing military risk



Join the conversation in the comments section below and feel free to send feedback on how we did and what topics you might want to hear about next.
