Wish I had access to this in my JO days

Former sub JO and stumbled across this podcast recently. Have been cherry picking past episodes - most particularly love the provocative thinking put forward (most typically by retired officers ... hmm) on episodes that get at fleet strategy issues, SwO career path challenges, and the like. Ward is great - keep it up. And will join USNI now, too!

Independent Look At The Issues Facing The Navy

I started listening to the podcast when I was midshipmen and it helped opened my eyes to a lot of the issues that the Navy is facing. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to all of the guest speakers and the solutions that they pose to the issues. As a young JO on a ship now, having the insight that comes from listening to the independent forum helps me engage in meaningful conversations with my peers about the current topics in today’s Navy. Thank you.

Big fan with an “other”

Listening to this podcast convinced me to join the Naval Institute. All the hosts have been good, but it’s particularly cool to hear Ward’s inputs. I’m a career naval aviator and remember “Punk’s War” as my intro to what life in the fleet was going to feel like.

Here’s your “other:” The Naval history episodes are boring- and I love Naval history. I’d recommend either dropping them or spicing them up. Please don’t continue to delve into details about the process of researching historical details.

Otherwise, keep it up. I like the current events discussions, the interviews with Proceedings contributors, my chiefs are paying attention to Master Chief Kingsbury, and I like learning about the Navy outside of my squadron. Thank you.
