Every day, members of the New Zealand Defence Force achieve extraordinary things. The Unclassified podcast brings to light memorable first-hand tales of courage and commitment, service and sacrifice. Season one looks at the NZDF’s significant contribution over more than 20 years to regional security in Afghanistan, and includes previously unheard stories about the heat of battle, the role of the SAS, keeping the faith in times of tragedy, and the lasting impacts of this deployment on those who served and their loved ones at home. Season two includes experiences of life on the front-line at home and overseas, such as daring rescues at sea and on the ice, the chaos of evacuating New Zealanders from Kabul as Afghanistan fell to the Taliban, the aftermath of the White Island eruption, and the reality of coming under a barrage of rocket attacks in Iraq.
