From tiny acorns...

I only recently discovered the website and Facebook group, but I am extremely excited to be able to listen to these podcasts as they come out.

I am in the British Army Reserves and about to become a Commanding Officer (Battalion Level) and the content here is of great interest.

Long may it continue.
