    #67 Ash Is a Police Radio Operator AND an Army Reservist. She's also An Absolutely RAD Chick Too.

    Ash trained with TBG online for ages prior to enlisting and then heading off to Kapooka as an Army Reserve GSO. She has since decided that she's going to transfer to GE and pursue that path as a Reservist.

    Ash works as a Police Radio Operator for Vic Pol. She is the person that takes the 000 calls and distributes them to wherever they need to go.

    She's one of the raddest chicks I know and it's NOT just because she loves a Gin.

    She's full of energy and has an awesome story to tell. 

    Enjoy.

    #63 Messages From The Other Side. What Current Serving Members Wish They Had Of Known.

    I asked 30 previous TBG members to tell us what they wish they had of known prior to enlisting or appointing into the ADF. 

    They also tell us what they love about being in the Military. 

    This episode is a collection of all the things applicants will want to know prior to joining the Military. 

    THANK YOU to all the members who contributed to this episode. You are all incredible people and this will help shape future applicants as they head off into their new careers.

Monica C WR ,

Brilliant advice and insight

I started training online with TBG one week ago. I have already seen how far I have to go to be ready for kapooka and highly recommend joining TBG online to make sure you are prepared. I have enlisted and passed my PFA already but I’m needing to do so much more preparation for kapooka. This podcast is so helpful in helping prepare. Thank you Carly and Michael!!!

Hoping to become a badass 😅

I actually started online training with Carly and Michael because I came across her podcast channel. I absolutely love how raw and informative Carly is and her passion for her work is so infectious. I can’t recommend this podcast and the Barracks Gym enough 💪🏼🙌🏼

Never Miss An Episode!

I am currently training to join the Australian Army & Carly’s podcasts truly inspire me and educate me on the career path I have chosen.
I always listen to the episodes when I’m on my morning run, they get me motivated & are so interesting at the same time.

Not only does Carly entertain the audience and teach them about the gym/training & the ADF - She also educates the audience on more technical terms (such as performance issues/muscle issues) which is super helpful!

Strongly recommend you give this one a listen :)
