This is Part One of a two part interview with Dr Andrew Gibson on the lived experiences of Irish Defence Forces personnel in civilian higher education since the 1960s.

In this episode we discuss his experiences with the IDF growing up, what motivated him to do a PhD, his love hate relationship with his original topic and why he made a massive change midway through his research.

We also discuss the unofficial forms of socialisation, the not so fashionable concept of role theory, uniforms, recognition (and often obscurity) of servicemen in Irish society, and the integration of officers in institutes of higher education. Be sure to listen to Part Two after you've finished this episode.
