Welcome to the AFJAGS Podcast Library

Through our Podcast series, we are able to reach Air Force and DoD leaders and legal practitioners, civilian practitioners, our Airmen, and anyone interested in developing their leadership and innovation skills or learning more about the JAG Corps.

Our guests span beyond the legal community to include commanders, pilots, doctors, technicians, and others who share their collective experiences and wisdom on how to grow as a leader, tackle the challenges of the 21st Century, and find innovative solutions to meet the demands of our mission set.

The podcasts are accessible 24/7 from this website along with popular podcast directories like iTunes or Stitcher.
