Episode 365: Elliot Ackerman, Author of Places and Names

Elliot Ackerman, National Book Award finalist for Dark at the Crossing, returns to the show and chats with Daniel Ford about his new book Places and Names: On War, Revolution, and Returning.

I’m interested in what it means to be a person, what it means to be a human being. War is something that is a distinctly human endeavor and it touches on all other human endeavors like love and family.
— Elliot Ackerman
