Suoerb Show, Exceptional Host

Nick was kind enough to invite me on his program, and the first thing I noticed was how utterly relaxed he is with his guests. He’s charming and utterly disarming with his easy going approach. He genuinely wants to hear what active duty and military vets have to say. It was like having drinks with an old friend. The spirit lifts and tie stories flow with ease.

In a time when we all need some good news, Nick Plosser delivers with enthusiasm and grace.

Great Show!

The insight provided by those who wore a uniform is refreshing and easy to relate to. Great concept, great content, great show!
