Welcome to The Scuttlebutt, a weekly pre-recorded program presented by The Veterans Breakfast Club. “Scuttlebutt” is a military term (specifically Navy) for talk or gossip around the watercooler below decks. And this is what our program is all about: we have informed conversations about the military experience, past and present. We want to bridge the divide between those who serve and those who don’t. We look at headlines, we tackle important topics, and we ask questions. Join us on this journey of spreading the Scuttlebutt!

You’ll love this podcast!

Shaun and Ryan do a great job bringing the culture and ethos of the US military to those who didn’t serve, which is most of us! Nice job guys!

Great show!

This is a great program! I’ve learned a lot about military culture, and I appreciate the time given to different perspectives on the subjects that are discussed. Great personalities, too! Everyone should tune in, whether you have a connection to the military or not.
