    ROUND 2: Social distancing is pretty much impossible on Navy ships and that’s become apparent as over 100 Sailors on an aircraft carrier have come down with Coronavirus. As the situation worsens one Captain on the ship has put their neck out to plead with officials to do the right thing and take steps to stop the spread.

    ROUND 3: Thousands of folks still stuck on cruise ships might get excited when they see the Coast Guard coming but they shouldn’t get their hopes up because they’re droppin’ a big ‘ol basket of bad news on ‘em.

    ROUND 4: Career day

    ROUND 5: Another game from Kate and she’s informed me that this time it’s a quiz of random military questions from WWII to veteran Porn that popped into her head with no rhyme or reason. Sounds awesome & you can play along, too.

    ROUND 2: In the first of our career day interview series, we are gonna hear from a pilot who flies the refueling planes.

    ROUND 3: A Colonel had a meltdown over ice cream so you won’t be finding much of it around Afghanistan chow halls anymore. Looks like those troops are in for a rocky road regarding their dessert section.

    ROUND 4: Lt General Mark Hertling joins the show to talk about his career, shooting with a chicken wing in a viral CNN clip, how he was injured in tank battle during Desert storm and much much more.

    Round 5: Sacre Blu! The last people on earth to know about coronavirus are some french submariners who are deep in the sea and have zero idea about what is happening up here on dry land.

    ZBT #250: Military Suspension featuring Rocky Bleier

    ROUND 1: The military has suspended all travel, deployments, and exercises for the entire force and we’re gonna give you a quick, light, roundup ending with the most pressing issue of all. Haircuts.

    ROUND 2: A bit of panic ensued on Twitter when a DJ named Kray-Z-K tweeted a photo of hundreds of tanks rolling through San Diego & asked if martial law was upon us. Is there a government conspiracy afoot?! Or is this DJ just spinning a wack track. Big bonus on this round, too… more tank talk!

    ROUND 3: As someone who’s had diarrhea since ____ I know how tough it is to unclog a toilet. But at least I’m not the Navy who has two new ships costing them $400,000 EVERY SINGLE TIME there’s a plumbing issue. Money down the s*****r, amiright folks? Ha ha

    ROUND 4: Rocky Blier

    ROUND 5: MINDLESS GAME-SHOW ALERT: Kate has a fun little name-game for us called “Country Singer, Nascar Driver, or Kate Made It Up” and you & your buddies can play along too.

    ZBT #249: Military Olympics + The Future

    ZBT #249: Military Olympics + The Future

    Round 1: The Canadians are leading the way again. Our friends up north announced they are not gonna be in the Olympics. The Summer Olympics. Kinda slaps differently when Canada says that arent playing beach volleyball.

    Round 2: With ESPN Ocho dominating the sports scene this weekend, we took to social media to see what military sports should be on the next slate of games. Watching people fill sandbags as fast as they can would be must-watch tv.

    Round 3: For the next two rounds, we are gonna step into the future. We’d all like to fast-forward the present, so we are gonna do that. People are currently designing the future. Whoa. Meta as f**k.

    Round 4: Multi-Azimuth Defense-Fast Intercept Round Engagement Systems. Buddy, the future is violent AF.

    ZBT #248: Fighting Boredom + Nudes

    ZBT #248: Fighting Boredom + Nudes

    ROUND 1: Boredom is going to start setting in soon. If you think we dont have a cure for that, you just made a big mistake. Huge. Let’s talk RomComs, folks.

    ROUND 2: Relax, don’t do it, when you wanna comb through it and get your haircut… At least if you’re in the Navy. They’re letting their grooming standards relax to deal with Coronavirus.

    ROUND 3: Yes, the times are changin’ but it’d be a lie to say nudie mags haven’t been a huge part of military culture. So its sad news as Playboy has published it’s very last print magazine ever. Bonus - Kate has a nudie mag quiz for Cons & I.

    ROUND 4: A story is making the rounds about a combat Veteran & his wife having a baby. What’s so interesting about that? The wife and baby are both dolls.

    ROUND 5: We asked, you answered. How is Coronavirus affecting your units… We can smell the bleach from here.
