In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Defence Connect journalist Steve Kuper to discuss the stories that made the most impact on the Defence Connect audience in 2018.
They will discuss a year dominated by naval shipbuilding, with almost half of the top 20 stories being centred around the SEA 5000 future frigate program, and both Phil and Steve will discuss the podcasts that they consider to be must-listens.
Phil and Steve will also provide some insight into what can be expected from Defence Connect in 2019, and share where you can next meet the team.
Enjoy the podcast,
The Defence Connect team
