Iraq and Afghanistan Veteran Discusses the Psychology of War Ep. 142

by | Dec 5, 2020

I had the honor of speaking with Scott Spaulding about his experience during his two tours each in Iraq and Afghanistan. Scott gives us insight into what combat veterans feel and experience in war. He also discusses the experiences he had during his deployments that made him antiwar.

Scott is starting an incredible new project called “Why I am Antiwar” where he speaks to other veterans and antiwar activists about the experiences that made them antiwar.
