Leading and biased interviews.
Didn’t like the host constantly interjecting. Please let the guest talk. Became collaboration, rather than independent opinions.
Be warned that this host and all his cherry picked guests are ANTI-TRUMP “collusion delusion” maniacs. Every episode seems to be banishing the POTUS with a snarky, condescending liberal view on everything he stands for. #MAGA #NOCOLLUSION #READTHEREPORT 🇺🇸
A great show hope it comes back

Unlike so many other shows that I hear I have yet to see a political bent only very good information
Don’t throw in the towel

Listen to this podcast !
Informative podcast. There isn’t another podcast out there like this. Well produced and interesting. The host has a hypnotic voice. I like the interviews - experts in the field add perspective. Great podcast. Make more please !
First time, last time listener.
Truth for the masses
I have a keen interest in foreign intelligence and covert ops. However, when I began listening to the most recent episode and you have John Burton of Stratfor as your guest, I backed out. Stratfor known as the kingmaker of shady anti American ops...no thanks. You’re pushing an agenda I’m 100% against.
Great podcast
Great podcast for IR and security studies students interest in the intelligence community
Covert Contact
Really wide range of issues covered in some depth and at a good pace. From crypto currencies to lock picking, I was surprised by how easily John and his episode guest brought me in. This podcast is an easy subscribe. I’m pretty happy when each episode drops.
Definitely worth your time
John’s thoughtful analysis and his expert guests make this podcast entertaining and educational. It is accessible for anyone from security professionals to laypeople who want to know a little more about the world.
Good conversational look at current issues.
I feel like the podcast is a good dialogue podcast that is easy to get into with getting bogged down in jargon. 5 stars
Very insightful
The leading edge
Covert contact has been the best podcast on the topics of foreign policy, intelligence, terrorism. With guests from within the field and information technology experts John's interviews help the audience digest complex topics.
Favorite NatSec Podcast
John Little's Podcast brings critical analysis together with some of the best subject matter experts in the arena. The topics are timely and the discussions are professional. Far and away my favorite national security / intelligence / foreign policy-related Podcast.
Helps me see the forest instead of looking at the same dumb tree
Helps me learn about the different components involved in international affairs
Great podcast
Big fan of John Little. The podcast and the guests John has on are knowledgeable and engaging. Always look forward to each new episode.
Awesome In Depth Take

Excellent Security Podcast
Always even-handed, covers a wide variety of topics, and includes a diversity of guests that give me a great respect for our security professionals. Analytical and accessible, the best of both worlds.
Iakovos Balassi
Fantastic analyses on a variety of subjects impacting security.
Considered, Objective and Informative
One of my favorite Intelligence-related podcasts. The creator is considered and well-spoken, and has interesting guests with informative backgrounds. Highly recommend for accurate "intel" aka information.
Incredible. Must listen.
This is one of THE (and I don't use all caps lightly) podcasts you need to—and must—be listening to to have a more nuanced and multifaceted understanding of some the most salient geopolitical and national security issues facing us now. If you know anything about anything, then you know this podcast IS a must listen. I can't recommend this podcast enough. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Listen to this podcast and gain a deeper understanding of the world beneath the surface of current affairs.
Level-headed analysis
John W. Little and his expert guests provide level-headed and informed analysis of the intelligience services, foreign policy, and military commitments. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone trying to understand our complex, dangerous world.
Great guests. Important topics. Level-headed analysis.
This is a great podcast to stay informed on issues of US national security.
Very interesting and informative
Very interesting and informative!
Keep peeling -!
One of the few covering these topics. Insightful, and informative information w/ relevant guests. Bias isn't overbearing but could be better
Informative & Balanced
This podcast is one of my favorites. I rarely write reviews but this one deserves it. The guests are great; the topics are informative; the host is professional and thoughtful. Please keep them coming.

Blogs of War-Cover Contact provides rare sober analysis, from an informed insider's perspective, of today's seemingly intractable national security environment.
My go-to
1234random nickname qwerty
I live in DC and study national security issues. Covert Contact is my go-to. Production is great, and the conversations are a good mix of expert and casual (the casual aspect makes the things interesting beyond just the issues). I'm a huge fan of the Bombshell too!
Great National Secutity Podcast
John Little is an excellent podcaster. He alway provides an informative and thought provocating program for anyone intrested in national securtiy issues. Cool guests and a good banter makes listening enjoyable. I often find myself nodding yes to Little and his guests take on the present.
it's great
reasonable man in the midwest
Too often the echo gets so loud it is difficult to hear what is really happening. With so little "real analysis" in the constant stream, John Little and his guests provide a welcome synthesis of the Historical and the Now.
A Lucky Find
Desert Fox 1989
Current events, implications and outcomes analyzed by informed professionals.
Informative, succinct, well-done
Great podcast. Host and guests are well-informed and to the point - no wasted time rambling. The sound quality is also great
Solid News/Opinion resource
Thoughtful and thorough -- could be better titled "National Security Matters" -- as both Blogs of War and Covert Contact sound more extreme than the content itself. Give it a try....great guests that you won't generally see on cable news in a format that can get beyond soundbites
On of the best
It'd be difficult to find a better and more comprehensive podcast relating to national security and foreign affairs. Always has well reasoned and thoughtful discussions with top notch experts.
Very highly recommended.
Broad range of topics but never sacrifices detail or analysis. Great production value and discussion. Add it to your feed.
Worth your time
Hits the sweet spot in terms of content and segment length. Enjoy the analysis and insight from the hosts.
Cleese Chelate
Long-winded, and liberal. You can definitely tell this guy is politically left-wing and a Hillary supporter.
Come on guys I don't think you're on that level yet to have a podcast lack of experience clearly displayed when you talked about Oregon and militias you can't really be that ignorant
Excellent resource on intelligence and foreign affairs
The best podcast I've come across on intelligence and foreign affairs. John and his guests do an exceptional job of breaking down extremely complex issues in a fashion that is accessible and enjoyable to all. Whether you spend your career in intelligence or are simply interested in learning more, it's worth subscribing to. Five stars.
Covert Contact BoW Podcast
Intelligent Academy
Love to listen to Covert Contact BoW Podcast! It is one of the best things to do for my morning ride to work! Keep this awesome work and look forward to having more great topics and speakers! Excellent podcast!👍👍👍
A great listen!
I have followed John Little and his work at Blogs of War for years and I can say that this podcast continues his tradition of offering a bleeding edge insight to the new era of open-source warfare and the effects on our world. His ability to procure content from nuanced sources that are typically missed in tofday's information overlaod world is outstanding. It's ecletic news for today's policy junkies.
Informative and evocative
National Security issues are often emotional and full of details. John Little knows his stuff and is an excellent presenter. He chooses topics that are of immediate importance to listeners and gives a good analysis. Episodes are not too long nor too dramatic. Expert opinions come from the experts themselves, as well as from inexperienced listeners who are interested in National Security. This is a podcast for everyone.
Overly dramatic analysis and commentary
The breathy commentary on security and intelligence issue is overly dramatic and self congratulatory. If you can stand to listen for a while the content is not bad, but the officious time and strange, overly long, transitions of 'code broadcasts' and gunfire make this very difficult to listen to.
