It’s 2020 and that means we have the technology to do a podcast from two separate time zones. I know you think it’s impossible, fair listener, but no! We have the science and we get it done! We discuss Iran, China and thieving copycats.
Well, there was an E-7 on the minds of the Salty crew today. Or E-6? The maybe-SEAL, and themes surrounding Mr. Gallagher, took up most of this conversation. One thing is for certain, there is no politicizing the military in this podcast! Right?
The kings of literary media interview Guy Snodgrass about his book, “Holding the Line: Inside Trump’s Pentagon with Secretary Mattis” and other issues involving his Navy knowledge as a retired Commander.

The Salty crew gets the origin story from Commander Salamander. We discuss writing criticism to power, anonymously and otherwise. There is some chatter about yesteryear’s Navy, today’s cancel culture and dabble a bit on Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn. There was a Jack McCain mustache reference too, which is pretty important.
Rust is all gone and the Salt is back. We discuss Satan’s ascent in the Navy, Jesus’s potential descent and blueberries igniting like gas-soaked-rags. Jimmy makes sure to sprinkle in some happy Navy news.
The Sultans of Salt bring on Russ Read of the Washington Examiner to talk about the relationship between the military and the press. This was recorded before the Moran stuff went down, so ease up off us.
The Salty dogs are back from their respective deserts and are having headlines for dessert. We talk about the Russians playing chicken with the good guys at sea, the USS John S. McCain/Trump speech controversy (and put it to bed) and some D-Day glory.
Sal Mercogliano joins your salty saviors to discuss the state of our seas in terms of navigating ongoing action on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. Sal (who “isn’t” Commander Salamander)has a few other thoughts for you to chew on, this Memorial Day.
