PODCAST: Unpacking the sub debate – Christopher Skinner

Thirty-year Royal Australian Navy veteran and editor of the Nuclear Propulsion Roadmap for Australia Christopher Skinner joins Liam Garman to unpack Australia’s ongoing submarine debate.

Thirty-year Royal Australian Navy veteran and editor of the Nuclear Propulsion Roadmap for Australia Christopher Skinner joins Liam Garman to unpack Australia’s ongoing submarine debate.

  

The pair begin by analysing the current submarine question spurred by the technology sharing arrangements under the AUKUS deal, and the differences between the proposed nuclear-powered submarines and the Attack Class.

The podcast then dives into whether Australia needs stop-gap capabilities in the meantime while the new fleet is under construction.

Finally, the podcast wraps up looking at whether nuclear powered submarines may spur interest in nuclear technology, and the geopolitical impacts of the France-Australia fallout.
