Latest Episodes

Ep. 12: Florence and the Marines

EWe talk about Hurricane Florence, which hit the east coast, to include the Marine Base at Camp Lejeune. Paul got married earlier this month! The wedding featured a beautiful background, drunken Marines trying to help some people get their car un-stuck as they were leaving, and a possibly-stoned DJ. There's also discussion of one of the first female infantrymen getting kicked out of the Corps, and some colorful quotes being attributed to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in the new Bob Woodward book, "Fear."

Ep. 11: End The Patriarchy

EIn this episode of After Action, Max goes on a kind-of weird rant about how men are ruining the entire Earth. He's not exactly wrong. Besides that, we also discuss Paul's upcoming wedding (hi Stacy!), Pizza MREs, the horribleness of "The Meg" — a new shark movie that is basically like Jaws except it sucks. We also get super-serious for a bit to talk about Paul's recent reporting at Task & Purpose on the first known instance of an insider attack on American forces operating in Syria.

Ep. 10: Make America Great Again!

EAfter a very lengthy delay in posting episodes due to Max's ongoing work on a forthcoming book and Paul's just being lazy, we're finally back with a brand new edition of After Action. On this show, we mainly talk about our long delay, what the hell we've been doing, and then delve into Max's inadvertently going to a Donald Trump rally. He recently received an award from the VFW and attended their national conference.

Ep. 9: Collateral Damage By Dog

EDid you miss us? We missed you too. After a very, very long delay, we finally have a brand new episode for you, and fortunately, this one is awesome. This time we brought on a guest and a good friend of ours, Mike Dowling. Mike is a Marine Corps veteran who served as a military working dog handler. Dowling now works in Hollywood as a producer and actor. You've seen him, for example, as the police sniper creeping up the stairs to take out the Boston bomber in the recent film "Patriot's Day."

Ep. 8: Avocado Toast

EJack Mandaville is back!. He's in town visiting California to film some stuff with Vet TV, so we got him on the show to talk about his Marine career, and 3 Iraq deployments. All three of us end up sort of going off the rails and telling war stories, boot camp stories, and whatever else. We also discuss the government shutdown — which ended up being resolved the day after we recorded this show — and the military-social media culture and how it has changed over time.

Ep. 7: Kylo Ren's Moto Tat

EWe're back! Happy New Year, everybody. In the first episode of season 2 (are we doing seasons now?), Max and Paul catch up on what they did over the holidays. The big topic of this show taking the majority of our time is the new Star Wars film, "The Last Jedi." If you haven't seen it yet, it's probably safe to say you're a terrible Star Wars fan, but just so you know, obviously we talk spoilers.

Ep. 6: Sky Dick

EAfter a long delay due to Max and Paul traveling and doing other stuff, we're back! We talk Thanksgiving Break, Max tells the story of his book signing at Camp Pendleton which gave him the opportunity to watch Marine recruits get thrashed right in front of him in his honor. We jump around to a number of other topics, including the infamous Sky Dick episode, Gen. Mike Flynn, favorite movies, how to tell a good war story, and why we should finally get the hell out of Afghanistan.

Ep. 5: Charms Or Not

EMax and Paul kick off this pre-Veterans Day weekend show with a heated debate over what is better:jalapeño cheese spread or chocolate peanut butter. Then of course, by popular demand, we discuss Bowe Bergdahl and his recent sentencing. We also talk about the Marine Corps Birthday (Nov. 10, 1775) and some of the myths around the Corps, and stuff you shouldn't ask veterans, like "did you ever kill anyone?"

Ep. 4: The Great Green Weenie

EThis show is a little bit different. On this episode, Max and Paul focus on answering questions sent in by listeners. We discuss our thoughts on the civilian-military divide, which leads to Paul's hatred of an infamous meme with a totally shitty underlying message. Then there's the question of what kind of military job we'd choose if we went back into the service, what we think of civilians reading Duffel Blog or Terminal Lance, and what our opinion is of Blade Runner 2049 (hint: It's awesome).

EIn this latest episode of After Action, Max and Paul have a special guest on the show: Jason Hall. Jason wrote the blockbuster hit film "American Sniper" starring Bradley Cooper, and most recently, wrote and directed "Thank You For Your Service," a new film based on the true story of a group of soldiers after they come home from the 2007-2008 Iraq War surge.
