As fiction authors, we dream about having impact on our readers, moving them to tears or inspiring them to take action. What if your novel or screenplay could do much more than that? What if you were able to raise public awareness and shape policy through storytelling? If you get the technical, societal, and ethical details right, this is definitely possible.

But it’s not easy. That’s where I come in…

My name is Dr. Natasha Bajema, aka @WMDgirl. I’m a national security expert, futurist and published fiction author. I host the Authors of Mass Destruction (AOMD) podcast which focuses on helping authors write great stories while getting the details right.

I’ve been an expert on national security issues for over 19 years, specializing in weapons of mass destruction (WMD), nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and emerging technologies. I’ve spent the past eleven years working for the National Defense University where I teach an elective course to senior military officers on WMD and film and lead a multi-year initiative on emerging technologies and WMD.

My past work experience includes extended assignments in the Pentagon, the Department of Energy and the United Nations. My publications include two co-edited volumes entitled Terrorism and Counterterrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism, both of which were published by McGraw Hill. I have an M.A. in international policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and a Ph.D. in international relations from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

The AOMD podcast is focused on helping authors write great stories while getting the details right. Tune in for interviews with leading experts on weapons of mass destruction and emerging technologies, author interviews, technical modules, and reviews of what TV shows and movies get right and wrong. The podcast will help authors who write about mass destruction develop impactful ideas for their page-turning plots and provide tips for conducting research.

Producing a podcast involves a number of costs such as hosting, graphics, and of course, my time to create the show. By being a patron, you’ll help cover the expenses for the podcast production, and bring me closer to producing my WMD 101 books.

Thank you for your support!
