In this episode of MWI’s Urban Warfare Project Podcast, John Spencer is joined by Master Sgt. Michael Kidd. He is an experienced leader in Army EOD—explosive ordnance disposal—with over sixteen years of service.

The job that EOD personnel do is vital, and Master Sgt. Kidd describes the training pipeline that is designed to prepare them to fulfill that job’s responsibilities. But like so many military tasks, the challenges of safely disposing of bombs and other explosives are compounded by the urban battlefield. The conversation in this episode touches on some of those challenges and explores ways they can be overcome.
