Defense Intelligence Agency launches official podcast

By DIA Public Affairs Defense Intelligence Agency

The Defense Intelligence Agency announced today the release of its official podcast, “DIA Connections.” The podcast explores the DIA mission and its people.

 “DIA Connections” gives the public an inside look at some of the lesser known agency missions, the people involved and the impact on national security. Listeners also have the opportunity to hear from distinguished speakers on topics ranging from military history to national security to Hollywood filmmaking.

The inaugural episode, “Fentanyl,” examines DIA’s role in tracking the shadowy production and distribution networks of this lethal drug. Additional episodes will be posted every two weeks

“DIA Connections” is now available on the DIA website as well as Apple Podcasts, DVIDS, Spotify and YouTube.

DIA's mission is to provide intelligence on foreign militaries to prevent and win wars. Nearly 50 percent of DIA's 16,500 employees are stationed outside Washington, D.C., at national intelligence centers, combatant commands, combat zones, and defense attaché offices worldwide.
