Ep. 73: Terry Finnegan on Warfare and Moral Courage

Author and former senior United States Air Force intelligence officer Terry Finnegan is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is the author of the books Shooting the Front: Allied Reconnaissance in the First World War and A Delicate Affair on the Western Front: America Learns How to Fight a Modern War in the Woëvre Trenches.

This is a great conversation where Chauncey and Terry discuss American history, warfare, our fathers, family legacies, careers, moral courage, the "Greatest Generation", unsung heroes, some big questions about the atomic bombings of Japan, Terry's time as a docent for the Enola Gay, how individuals and their choices make history, and whatever other topics happen to be broached at the virtual bar and salon.  During this installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also complains about being in his overpriced and cold Chicago apartment, reflects on how Ann Coulter tried to bait and taunt him this week on Twitter, shares a story about how the "sharing economy" and Uber exploits folks in this living neoliberal nightmare that is 21st century American life, and tries a new soda..which he has a very mixed (but ultimately positive) response to.
