Well done!

I’m enjoying the recent trend of “the real guys” talking about these topics. Very informative and highly interesting primary history. Thanks. 👍🏼👍🏼

Great podcast if you want to learn a lot!

I listen to this podcast in my free time and I’m really impressed with the guest speakers and the host. I feel their lessons and debriefs have mentored me as I’m working through Navy flight school. I would recommend this to anyone.
