The Scuttlebutt | Season 1 Episode 14

This week, we have for you our Season 1 Finale: Just the Scuttlebutt! We’ve had such a great time sharing military headlines, fascinating stories, and bits of scuttlebutt with you over the past few months that we figured, why not dedicate our last episode to just Scuttlebutt! We’re joined by the folks we’re calling our “All-Star Cast,” Marine Corps vet James Martin, Army vet Ryan Ahl, and Gold Star Wife Becky Nyren. Tune in as we check back on stories we’ve been following since Episode 1 and introduce new pieces of Scuttlebutt we just can’t help but share. Make sure to listen through the end, as we wrap up with our reflections on Season 1. We thank you for watching and listening to this season’s episodes, and we can’t wait to talk with you all again in Season 2!
