Lauren, Nate, and Weirick are back on Task & Purpose Radio after a short hiatus. Now that Serial is over, the podcast will address broader military and veterans issues every week.

On episode 16, the crew discusses the increase in troop numbers in Iraq and Syria and why the White House keeps denying, or at least refusing to say outright, that we have boots on the ground in combat.

Also, Nate and Weirick take Task & Purpose’s quiz, “Quiz: Which Of These 7 Infantry Guys Are You?”

Lauren interviews the podcast’s producer, Army vet Karl Morand.

And Weirick reads comments from our loyal fan base.
