Plenty of Time When We Get Home with Kayla Williams
In this episode of Incoming, author and Army veteran Kayla Williams talks with us about serving in Iraq as the most forward-deployed woman of the war at her time.

Duffel Blog With Paul Szoldra
Today we talk with Marine Corp. veteran Paul Szoldra, founder of the wildly popular satirical website Duffel Blog, the military equivalent to The Onion, beloved by service members from boots, all the way up to James Mattis, for its ability to hilariously speak truth to power.

Invictus – Nathan Fletcher
Our guest today is Marine Corps veteran, professor of political science, and former California State Assembly Speaker Nathan Fletcher. Nathan very publicly switched from Republican to Democrat after giving a speech in favor of repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and allowing all persons to serve openly. And he paid for it politically. But he has no regrets, as you’ll hear in his interview.

Matt Komatsu And Veterans Respond
This episode is split between two conversations–both about many things–but sharing the theme of protecting others and how that relates to one’s identity. In the second half of today’s show we’re going to be talking with two members of Veterans Respond, which mobilizes veteran volunteers to areas of natural or man-made disasters; but first up, we’re with writer and active duty Air Force officer Matthew Komatsu.

We Gotta Get Outta This Place – Doug Bradley
Today we’re going to be talking with Doug Bradley, Army veteran and author of We Gotta Get Outta This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that some of the insights Doug dropped on me about music and war and inter-generational conflicts changed my entire perspective on the matter. The man knows that of which he speaks.

Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children (USMC) – Brian Simpson And Dan Lopez
We have two of the most entertaining, self-made, grunt-ass Marines on today’s show. Their upbringings made them perfect candidates for the United States Marine Corp, the USMC, an acronym Marines will often repurpose when referring to themselves as Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children. Veteran and stand-up comedian Brian Simpson talks about maintaining identity while serving in the armed forces. And veteran Dan Lopez tells the true story about smoking pot with the Taliban.

Labels – James Seddon
We’re spending this hour with our friend, writer, performer, and veteran Navy officer, James Seddon. James is one of the founding members of So Say We All’s Veteran Writers Program, is published in the first Incoming anthology, and has performed his writing all over San Diego. Though he’s been working diligently on his memoir, he came by to share some of his incredible stories about the labels placed upon service members, enemies, and veterans. Contributor: James Seddon.

Everything Is A War – Vance Voyles And Natalie Lovejoy
“Everything Is A War,” focuses on stories about how serving in a war zone can stick to a person, so deeply that traces of it will magically appear months, years after a service member returns home. And it doesn’t just impact service members, but the friends, lovers, and family of those connected to them. We’ve drafted two voices to tell you stories on that front today. Musical theatre composer and performer Natalie Lovejoy joins us in the second half to talk about her experiences as a young military spouse, and how she was able to tell her story and connect with others through musical theatre. First up, Navy veteran and police officer Vance Voyles talks about how the war comes back for him, in some of the calls he’s responded to as a cop. Contributors: Vance Voyles, Natalie Lovejoy.

Eat The Apple – Matt Young
We’re spending this episode with Iraq war veteran Matt Young. Matt’s debut novel Eat the Apple chronicles his journey as an aimless 18-year-old who enlists in the Marine Corps after driving drunk into a fire hydrant. It was a jolt that convinced him that he needed to find direction in his life, and, in his own words, “man up.” What follows is a brutal, self-aware story about being both the victim and perpetrator of hazing and abuse, feeling pressure to tell the lies he thought civilians wanted to hear, and the absurdist snapshots of war and training for it that most other accounts gloss over. Because they’re too ugly, too embarrassing, or just too honest. Contributor: Matt Young. His debut novel is "Eat The Apple."

The Undesirables – Lisbeth Prifogle And Anthony Moll
Today’s show is titled, with our tongues lodged firmly in our cheeks, “The Undesirables,” because it features two wonderful veteran voices who speak on the subject of having to hide aspects of their personal identities which–at the time–could have been viewed as obstacles to their military careers. Contributors: Lisbeth Prifogle and Anthony Moll.

All That’s Really Worth Doing – Brian Turner And Mariah Smith
Today’s episode takes its name after a quote by Lewis Carrol, “All That Is Really Worth Doing is Worth the Doing is What We do for Others,” and we chose it because our two contributors, Brian Turner and Mariah Smith of the US Army, have stories and poems that echo that sentiment. Mariah, because her story is about jumping through hurdles to be present for an important moment in the life of someone who was important to her, and Brian, because his poetry and stories consistently carry an element of sitting watch with someone in their darkest hours. We’re going to start off with Brian Turner. Contributors: Brian Turner and Mariah Smith

Unstuck In Time – Benjamin Busch And Sierra Crane
Navigating the present, alongside past and future. Today’s show, “Unstuck in Time,” is titled after the opening line in Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse Five, one of our favorite descriptions about Post Traumatic Stress. Vonnegut uses it in reference to his main character, where he writes, “Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time.” Upon first reading the book, it’s natural to take it literally — the book is couched in a science-fiction veneer after all –but upon later reflection its remarkable how perfectly it explains the phenomenon of flashbacks. Contributors: Benjamin Busch and Sierra Crane.

The Abyss Also Gazes – Andrew Szala, Rolf Yngve, Gill Sotu, Elizabeth Washburn And Dan Lopez Of Combat Arts
Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you. – Fredrick Nietzsche. Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote reminds me that there are certain individuals who have unique insights about the process of staring into the abyss, as well as climbing back out of it again. We have four terrific veteran writers and artists speaking on the subject who come at it from very different angles: Contributors: Andrew Szala, Rolf Yngve, Gill Sotu, Elizabeth Washburn and Dan Lopez of San Diego’s veteran visual arts non-profit, Combat Arts.
