After a very long summer hiatus, we're back with the final leg of book 1 of Fellowship of the Ring.

Frodo and the gang put on quite a show in the Prancing Pony, and much to the chagrin of a new stranger, a…

Happy Easter everyone! We took a brief hiatus while Kayla was on spring break and for the Easter holiday to spend time with our families, but now we're back to our regular posting schedule. This week, we're taking a trip with the quartet into The Old Forest of Chapter 6. Frodo and company face an imposing, almost living forest that quite nearly get…
 
The moral of the story so far: Frodo isn't as sneaky as he thinks he is. This week, we cover Chapter 5, A Conspiracy Unmasked. Frodo, Sam, Pippin and Merry are squad goals that all your friends should strive for and we can only be jealous of their superior support skills, both as friends and characters in a story. We discuss mushrooms at length and…

This time, we explore chapter 4 of The Fellowship of the Ring, in which Frodo, Sam, Pippin, and Merry decide to take a (not) short cut through a forest to escape the clutches of the Black Riders again. Then they meet up with Farmer Maggot, who urges them to move on and keep safe. Kayla gives Audr…
 
Please note, this podcast is full of spoilers for "The Lord of the Rings". We encourage you to read along if you would like, but listen after you read each chapter!

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.About the Show:Incoming showcases the true stories of America’s military v…

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 regr…
 
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…
 
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…
 
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 id…
 
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 s…
 
“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…
 
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 bru…
 
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.…
 
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 pres…
 
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 re…
 
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 agai…
 
On today’s show we’re talking about, “Aftershocks,” both literal and figurative, related to events that came back to shake us after their initial detonation. We have three great contributors, whose stories deal with how the quickest moments can have the longest effects. Contributors: Casondra Brewster, Sam Abel, Lt. Cmd. Liam Corley.…
 
“I was much further out than you thought, And not waving but drowning.” –Stevie Smith. Today’s episode is titled “Lost At Sea,” for two reasons: firstly because we’ll be hearing from service members who spent a lot of their time bobbing on the water, Kurt Kalbfliesh of the Navy and Tenley Lozano of the Coast Guard, but also because their stories bo…
 
“Tell me a Story!” He said. “I’ll tell you a story.” Invasion can be both psychological and literal. We’re very lucky to be able pair up two contributors who dealt with invasion and actually served together at the same time in Iraq, but from very different places. Our contributors are Francisco Martinezcuello, a mustang officer, and Sammi S., an Ir…
 
The past doesn’t go anywhere. Time is a river, and you are standing in it. – Utah Phillips Today’s show is split into three parts and three different veteran writers, each focusing respectively on periods before the country went to war after 9/11, during deployment downrange in Iraq, and the aftermath after leaving the service. That’s why we’re tit…
 
What happens overseas comes home with you, and can find a way to reappear back into your life when you least expect it. Today’s episode is titled, “Souvenirs,” which in the context of the stories you’re about to hear is a little tongue-in-cheek, a little bit of that dark humor people under stress employ from time to time to get by, but I’m sure you…
