It’s episode 4 of Defense Daily’s new podcast series, THE BUSINESS END, and this time we’re looking at the Coast Guard’s strategy for the Arctic region and the tools it’ll need to carry out the diverse mission set there. Joined by business and homeland security reporter Cal Biesecker, John will look at questions such as:

  • What are the United States’ objectives in the Arctic?
  • What role does the Coast Guard play in achieving those objectives, and how does it interface with the Navy?
  • What capabilities does the Coast Guard want on its new Polar Security Cutters, and how many are needed to effectively project sovereignty in the far north?

We get some answers straight from the source, with a special guest appearance by Admiral Karl Schultz, Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard.
