Recommended episode: S3, Ep 27: MG David Hodne – Culture, Character, and Communication
Former acting Director of the CIA Michael Morell speaks with top leaders of the U.S. intelligence community as they reflect on their life, career and the critical roles they play in shaping national security policies. As a central figure in the most significant U.S. counter-terror efforts of the past two decades and a former CIA intelligence analyst, Morell is uniquely skilled at taking industry leading knowledge to make connections that provide deep insight into complex security events – helping decode intelligence officials’ key priorities and providing perspectives on how to achieve national security objectives. Morell is the author of “The Great War of Our Time” and a vivid account of the Central Intelligence Agency, a life in secrets, and a war in the shadows.
Lawfare currently hosts eight podcasts offering a variety of perspectives on national security. In cooperation with Goat Rodeo, Lawfare produces The Lawfare Podcast, Rational Security, Chatter and Lawfare No Bull. Additionally, The Lawfare Podcast has a long running series Arbiters of Truth, and Lawfare regularly produces special deep-dive narrative podcast series. The latest addition to Lawfare's podcasts is #LiveFromUkraine.
The name Lawfare refers both to the use of law as a weapon of conflict and, perhaps more importantly, to the depressing reality that America remains at war with itself over the law governing its warfare with others. This latter sense of the word—which is admittedly not its normal usage—binds together a great deal of our work over the years. It is our hope to provide an ongoing commentary on America’s lawfare, even as we participate in many of its skirmishes.

CSIS’s values work in concert toward the goal of making real-world impact. CSIS scholars bring their policy expertise, judgment, and robust networks to their research, analysis, and recommendations.
