What Does When Diplomacy Fails Do?

Don't forget to check out the Xtra feed - it contains exclusive content you won't get anywhere else!

Among other things - we make podcasts! Podcasts are programs that contain spoken word, episodes if you like, that involve a person or group of people talking about a subject of interest. In this case, the interest of this podcast is wars throughout history and why they happen. 

My name is Zack Twamley, and I'm a historian, with a masters and a book to my name, but most importantly, I'm the guy in charge of everything When Diplomacy Fails (otherwise known as WDF).

Make sure to check out the latest episode in the feed!

I research the episodes, write the notes, type the scripts, record the voices, edit the mistakes and then add our signature background noises. All in all, it's quite a laborious process, but it's well worth it! As of May 2017 we are not only 5 years old, but over 3 million downloads strong! I have you, my faithful listeners to thank for that: some of you have been with me since day one! Being a history podcaster for you guys had led to everything from t-shirts to forays into YouTube, to a book deal, and this is place where you'll find it all! This website is our space on the web that will hopefully make getting to know WDF that much easier, and it should make doing BEFIT and encouraging you guys to support the podcast that much easier too! Haha!

If you're not sure what to do next, have a gander below. There you'll find an introductory episode into the series, as well as the first YouTube vid we ever did! If that doesn't scare you off, then you've probably come to the right place!
