Inside the Pentagon

I used to wonder how the special agents in the Pentagon are trained. The US Intelligence and Pentagon seem so highly secretive that I’m sure their training programs must be equally high level and secretive. Recently, I saw an Inside Online Education podcast from capella university featuring an interview with one of their PhD students about her work as Program Manager for the Joint Staff Training Program at the Pentagon. Listening to the rigorous training they go through, it’s no wonder at all that the US intelligence system is so top-notch!

I was equally amazed at how she managed to dedicate her time to studying her PhD while working. Some people are truly dedicated and disciplined! If you're interested in listening to more podcasts, you can do so from the Capella University website at or Alternatively, you can subscribe to the podcast RSS feed at or get them via subscription from iTunes.
