    Scuttlebutt Ep 40: Nick Kalt, Doing Good in Dangerous Situations

    Scuttlebutt Ep 40: Nick Kalt, Doing Good in Dangerous Situations

    Vic sat down with Nick Kalt to dig deep into his career, first as a combat engineer in the Marines and then as a firefighter in Long Beach, California. Listen to this great episode that covers a lot of ground, from talking about how Marines in the Middle East were doing good things, regardless of the political reasons they were sent in, from liberating villages, to building roads and schools, to why firefighting is a logical next choice for driven Marines who seek service and camaraderie, even for someone who was seriously injured twice in the Corps, once in training and once the line of service, as Kalt was.

    Scuttlebutt Ep 35: "Farmer" Paul Greive from Marine Intelligence to Chicken Farming

    Scuttlebutt Ep 35: "Farmer" Paul Greive from Marine Intelligence to Chicken Farming

    This week Vic sits down with Paul Greive, a former ground intelligence officer turned SoCal sustainable, certified wildlife friendly pasture-raised chicken farmer. His company, Pasturebird, is a wholesale pasture poultry operation located just a few miles east of Camp Pendleton, where Paul spent much of his fleet time. Paul talks to us about how his passion for good, sustainable, nutrient-rich food started from his need to cure his symptoms from Lyme disease. And then what began as a Facebook post inquiring to see if anyone wanted to buy some chicks exploded into him leaving his accounting firm in Orange County to becoming one of the pioneers on the forefront of sustainable and humane farming.
