The Association of the U.S. Army is releasing four new podcast episodes in January, including an interview with the new senior enlisted leader for Army Materiel Command and a look at the National Guard’s COVID-19 operations in North Dakota. 

First up in the “Army Matters” series is a conversation with Command Sgt. Maj. Alberto Delgado, who became Materiel Command’s 17th senior enlisted leader in July. 

A veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, Delgado will share his leadership philosophy and how he’s working to build strong, cohesive teams across the command. 

The episode is available Jan. 4. 

Next, on Jan. 11, is a podcast on the National Guard’s response to COVID-19 in North Dakota. A panel of three Guard members will talk about the missions they’re supporting, best practices and lessons learned, keeping responders safe and healthy, and how they’re combating the effects of fatigue on soldiers and health care professionals. 

The Jan. 18 podcast will feature Amy Palmer, president and CEO of Soldiers’ Angels, an organization that works to provide aid, comfort and resources to service members, wounded troops, veterans and their families.  

The final podcast for the month will feature author Ty Seidule, who will discuss his book Robert E. Lee and Me: A Southerner’s Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause.  

Seidule, professor emeritus of history at West Point who served in the Army for 36 years, retiring as a brigadier general, writes about how he grew up revering Lee and viewing the Confederacy in an honorable light. He also explores how his view has radically changed over time. 

The episode is available Jan. 25. 

Seidule also will appear on the Feb. 4 edition of AUSA’s Thought Leaders webinar series. The event begins at 10 a.m. Eastern. It is free, but registration is required here
