Fact Finding: After Dark
In this episode we talk about staying motivated with my first LPO, and he has a Youtube channel dedicated to the topic. Don't let that make you think that he's completely straight laced, because he specifically asked us to record drunk. Being dedicated to our craft, of course we obliged him.Social Media is quickly becoming a way for Sailors and DoD personnel to express themselves in a way that may or may not be ok with big Navy. Protect yourselves and enjoy that first amendment right nukes.You can find him on youtube here:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVxLQ1Ymi0tXkPvlWIV-NUQ

No, we weren't shut down again. We're still here, and we will be posting 2 episodes a week for the foreseeable future to play catchup. We have about 8 episodes recorded that need editing and uploading, so content is coming back in a big , tremendous way. Some say the most tremendous.With the recent fall of Afghanistan, I thought it was important to talk about how it could've gotten to this point.This isn't like a normal episode. It's not as funny, and it's a bit more raw, but I felt like it was important to talk about how we've gotten to this point and what it means for us as both Nukes and Americans.You can reach out to us anytime at email@example.com.

Needs of the Navy
When it comes time to rotate, there are few words more dreaded than "Needs of the Navy"For some, it may have meant a tour at prototype or at a place far away from home. For me personally, it worked out pretty well. Today, we'll discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of these type of orders. As usual, we also get really sidetracked.When you listen, you may hear some breathing going on. Unfortunately with the way we record, the video file gets exported into one audio file, so there isn't much I can do about it unfortunately, but it is something I will try to remedy moving forward by recording separate audio files. Please bear with me as I learn how to do this whole podcasting thing.I hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it.~Shine

If a Critique Happens, and No One Is Blamed, Did It Really Happen?
In what may be my favorite episode we've ever done, we talk about Fact Finding and Critiques.

We get into less serious topics like how to lead sailors.Remember to send your stories to FactFindingPodcast@gmail.comWe're really proud of this one, and we hope you enjoy.~Shine, Shimmer, and Scuttlebutt

In our Relaunch, we explore why mess deck food is so bad before we get sidetracked.Thank you for coming back. We're excited to be back.As a reminder, all opinions are our own, and we do not represent the opinions of the DoD, DoN, or anyone else except for ourselves. Believe it or not, this has to be said. All stories should be interpreted as satire, and anyone that believes a sea story is a gullible polywag. Polywags also try to remove the podcast because they use their position to exert undue pressure to remove it.Be a Trusty Shellback, don't be a slimy polywag.
