Our beloved, beloved sports. Round 3: Motivator, motivator come on out. We wanna hear Cpl Greg Fisher, who we post on social media every monday, scream and shout. Round 4: As many of you know, toilet paper can be hard to get your hands on. So can eggs, milk, and lysol. One industry is booming during quarantine season, you guessed it. It’s baby chick time. Round 5: The Career Fair continues and we talk to a Chaplain Round 6: The leader of ISIS in Afghanistan was arrested with 19 other militants. We arent going to spend much time on it, I just really wanna mention how fucking ugly this dude is.

ROUND 2: Social distancing is pretty much impossible on Navy ships and that’s become apparent as over 100 Sailors on an aircraft carrier have come down with Coronavirus. As the situation worsens one Captain on the ship has put their neck out to plead with officials to do the right thing and take steps to stop the spread. ROUND 3: Thousands of folks still stuck on cruise ships might get excited when they see the Coast Guard coming but they shouldn’t get their hopes up because they’re droppin’ a big ‘ol basket of bad news on ‘em. ROUND 4: Career day ROUND 5: Another game from Kate and she’s informed me that this time it’s a quiz of random military questions from WWII to veteran Porn that popped into her head with no rhyme or reason.

ROUND 6: Kate has another game for us and this time it’s all about acronyms. Let’s hope it’s not SNAFU!

ZBT #250: Military Suspension featuring Rocky Bleier
ROUND 1: The military has suspended all travel, deployments, and exercises for the entire force and we’re gonna give you a quick, light, roundup ending with the most pressing issue of all. Haircuts! ROUND 2: A bit of panic ensued on Twitter when a DJ named Kray-Z-K tweeted a photo of hundreds of tanks rolling through San Diego & asked if martial law was upon us. Is there a government conspiracy afoot?! Or is this DJ just spinning a wack track. Big bonus on this round, too… more tank talk! ROUND 3: As someone who’s had diarrhea since ____ I know how tough it is to unclog a toilet. But at least I’m not the Navy who has two new ships costing them $400,000 EVERY SINGLE TIME there’s a plumbing issue. Money down the shitter, amiright folks? Ha ha ROUND 4: Rocky Blier ROUND 5: MINDLESS GAME-SHOW ALERT: Kate has a fun little name-game for us called “Country Singer, Nascar Driver, or Kate Made It Up” and you & your buddies can play along too.

Kinda slaps differently when Canada says that arent playing beach volleyball! Round 2: With ESPN Ocho dominating the sports scene this weekend, we took to social media to see what military sports should be on the next slate of games. Watching people fill sandbags as fast as they can would be must-watch tv. Round 3: For the next two rounds, we are gonna step into the future. We’d all like to fast-forward the present, so we are gonna do that. People are currently designing the future. Whoa. Meta as fuck. Round 4: Multi-Azimuth Defense-Fast Intercept Round Engagement Systems. Buddy, the future is violent AF..
Mar 24, 2020
ZBT #248: Fighting Boredom + Nudes
ROUND 1: Boredom is going to start setting in soon. If you think we dont have a cure for that, you just made a big mistake. Huge. Let’s talk RomComs, folks! ROUND 2: Relax, don’t do it, when you wanna comb through it and get your haircut… At least if you’re in the Navy. They’re letting their grooming standards relax to deal with Coronavirus. ROUND 3: Yes, the times are changin’ but it’d be a lie to say nudie mags haven’t been a huge part of military culture. So its sad news as Playboy has published it’s very last print magazine ever. Bonus - Kate has a nudie mag quiz for Cons & I. ROUND 4: A story is making the rounds about a combat Veteran & his wife having a baby. What’s so interesting about that? The wife and baby are both dolls. ROUND 5: We asked, you answered. How is Coronavirus affecting your units… We can smell the bleach from here..

Round 2: Magnets… How do they work? Not only that, but other stuff is weird too. We are gonna hop right into something not coronavirus related. Round 3: For round number three, we had longtime Stoolie Boris come in to read the round. You’ll remember Boris as the gentleman who shaved my beard in New York a few months ago. He’s been helping us with graphics so take it away Boris. Us pesky Russians are back in the news. Coronavirus be damned. We head to Alaska to check out your most beautiful state. Did we get caught? You’ll have to wait until round three to find out. Round 4: Everything in America is changing which includes military stuff too. Boot camp is delayed. All PCS and TDY moves are halted until May 11th. Some of those spots are worse than others. We took to the zbt platoon to remind us about the worst places you could be on lockdown..
Mar 16, 2020
ZBT #246: Coronavirus + Integrity Violators
Round 1: Coronavirus hysteria. It’s going down, folks. So we are gonna give you a little advice amd freak out some too. ROUND 2: The GI Bill is a wonderful thing.. Until your school is charged with “erroneous, deceptive, or misleading" practices so the VA terminates new enrollments. ROUND 3: Integrity Violators? In the military? Hard to believe, but some little birdies - AKA you guys - told us about the craziest lies people in your unit ever got caught up in. ROUND 4: Hear the story of a spoooooky Air Force crew that just got awarded for their bravery in 9-hour firefight against ISIS back in 2019. Round 5 doggie bag!

ZBT #245: Bomb Sniffing Dolphins + Lies Your Recruiter Told You
Round #1: Despite what longtime stoolie Ray Finkle would say, the laces were out and the dolphins are in… inside the belly of a C-17 because these specialized bomb-smelling dolphins are headed to the Florida Keys from San Diego. No word yet on Key Largo or Montego. We’ll keep you updated! Round 2: THATS A SPICY MEAT-A-BALL! Soldiers and family members assigned to bases in Italy will no longer be allowed to PCS home, go to professional schools, or couple’s skate at the base roller rink due to fears about the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy. One of those isn't true. We’ll let you think about it and guess! Round 3: That’s right, folks. MORE CORONAVIRUS TALK! This time, however, we are going to praise the good folks of the Coast Guard. The more I think about it, they might be the most useful branch to homeland America. They are constantly in the thick of it even if that thickness comes from the mucus-laden nastiness of the coronavirus. Round 4: Recruiter Tall Tales: we head out to the ZBT platoon on social media to check in and see if the recruiters out there ever lie, cheat, or steal. It should be a short round because honesty is a hallmark of non-commissioned officers. Round 5: A Marine had to take a shit. The Marine wasn't Kate or me.. We’ll tell you her horror story, though. Dont drink coffee while we do if you have a barracks inspection. We dont want nose coffee.. (Which is different than nose beers) to cause you to fail your inspection..

ZBT #243: Sgt. Slaughter and 36 Hours of Peace
Round 1: An Army unit had a DUI over the weekend. Nothing new there. The command went a little bit old school in the punishment. Does unit punishment work for situations like this? Maybe. Probably not. Round 2: America’s newest medal of honor recipient just got promoted to Sergeant Major. Having a SgtMaj with a MOH would be both a blessing and it would STINK. We’ll tell you why. Round 3: We have an agreement in place to leave Afghanistan! Woohoo! America and the Taliban signed the agreement on Friday. Afghanistan isnt on board though. Is that a problem? Round 4: Marine Corps Commandant General Berger is making some big changes and we’re going to tell you about two. One involves the confederate flag and the other involves making the Marine Corps the smartest branch in the DoD. Round 5: In the worst Stolen Valor news of my adult life, Sgt. Slaughter has been outed as a fake which kinda proves that WCW is better than WWE!
Mar 03, 2020
ZBT #242: Big Dinghy Energy

ROUND 2: A U.S. soldier in South Korea has tested positive for COVID-19 AKA Coronavirus. We hope they’re ok but also imagine they are getting absolutely roasted by their pals right now. ROUND 3: Women are in the news for both British & American military forces this week as they make great strides. As per usual the haters are out in full force. ROUND 4: We are pretty pro America on this podcast so when a national American media company shits down our throat, we take notice. NPR wrote a piece about America losing an important war. We dont take that lightly. ROUND 5: Two British sailors were awarded for bravery at Kensington Palace. An award ceremony just slaps different in a castle, folks. Round 6: Cons sits down with Army Football captain Cole Christensen to talk about the new policy allowing Academy graduates to go pro and how it came about because of a random comment in the Oval Office!!!

The squad is going to get into the mind-binding decision that resulted in having a Taliban leader write an opinion piece in the New York Times.

Mr. Red White and Blue Round 5: Recently, a 62 year old veteran broke a planking record. He held the position for nearly 8 hours. We’ll let you guess what school he went to. It’ll make Connor happy and Connor deserves happiness too!

ROUND 1: There are about 27 Fast & Furious movies now, but we’re especially excited for the next one - Fast & Furious, Syria Drift which is inspired by true events this week as a Russian vehicle tried to go full Vin Diesel against a convoy of US MRAPs. ROUND 2: How do you guys like your coffee? With piss? Well that’s super weird. But if true, you guys are gonna love what a disgruntled Airman is in trouble for. ROUND 3: A survey has come out telling us what states have the most folks enlisting. Is YOUR state one of the most patriotic? ROUND 4: We all know bureaucratic red tape & the military go together like peas & carrots, and that’s especially true for a Marine Recruit who has been in the brig for almost 2 years now, but… without any charges or trial thus far??? ROUND 5: We’ll close out the show with some final thoughts on Iwo Jima and what the legacy means to us..

ROUND 1: A Texas county sheriff’s candidate loooved talking about his time in the SEALs, Green Berets & Airborne rangers, but it turns out he was never with any of them… and it’s even more of a heartbreaker when it turns out his opponent did the same thing! ROUND 2: It’s Valentine’s Day!!! Which is great news because that means chocolate will be ½ off at the PX tomorrow, and even better news since listeners showered each other with love notes & we’re gonna read those sweet, sweet suckers today. ROUND 3: Wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a little heartbreak, too, and it looks like the Phillipines might be breaking up with the USA & ending a major security pact that allows us to train in their country. ROUND 4: People on deployments dont cease being horny. Some of our listeners have never been on a field op, deployment, or movement while in a romantic relation. We’ll take some advice from the salt dogs of WW2 and then put our spin on sexting while deployed. ROUND 5: An Air Force pilot sent a ring to outer-fucking-space in a marriage proposal that will put you all to SHAME!!!
Feb 14, 2020

ROUND 4: What military moments send shivers down your spine, pricklies on your neck, & goosebumps down your arms? We asked, you answered… ROUND 5: This weekend a Medal of Honor recipient went on Fox and Friends to trash LtCol Vindman’s career and reputation. Is this who we are going to be as a veteran/military community???

ROUND 1: Our friends the Russian Orthodox ministers are blessing babies, marriages, and now… NUCLEAR BOMBS. Good idea or bad idea???

Russian contractors in Syria are getting into standoffs with US troops and tensions are high after some potentially dangerous encounters ROUND 3: A spouse surprise at SOTU address had many in tears, but for a lot of veterans watching it was bittersweet after nearly 2 decades of war ROUND 4: One employee at the Little Rock VA improperly gave out $311,000 in disability payments to 11 vets after miscalculating claims, and those veterans affected get to keep the money. Is this employee the Robin Hood of the system? Or just really bad at their job? ROUND 5: Sources believe North Korea is close to completing a submarine with nuke capabilities, though sources also believe this sub would be ‘very noisy and easy to spot’.. So there’s that.

Round 4: The VFW is demanding an apology from President Trump after remarks this week about traumatic brain injuries.

ZBT's Best of 2019

Listen up platoon: This is our Best of 2019. The Top 10 segments from the past year. In no particular order except for which they appear in the pod:

1) The squad went to Fort Bragg and some Commanding General tried to fuck all our shit up. Then we talked about the time a Cpl emailed the Commandant for funsies.  2) Astronaut Scott Kelly agreed to do an interview so he could surprise us by reading an old Barstool blog about how hot his wife is compared to how ugly he is. Our pal Feitelberg comes on afterwards to explain himself.  3) RIP Doris.  4) A probe into 2017 USS Fitzgerald collision reveals harsh conditions of the ship. That shit was gross. 5) Cancel The Code 6) Remember the time one LCpl tried to take out the entire cartel by himself?. Us too, and this is the first time the 'LCpl voice' is used on show 7)  A Milfur went viral for participating an award ceremony dressed in their furry outfit. Kate fell down a furry rabbithole and hasn't been the same since.  8) Five veterans were among group of 8 arrested in Haiti, and they couldn't lie their way out of trouble. Also don't mess with the Serbians 9) Wearing pajamas to chow hall while the Commandant is on base was one of the best stories of the year. Our LCpl underground tells us what really happened at Camp Lejeune 10) Chaps basically becomes Varys from Game of Thrones. His little birds sing him a song from the Air Force's 735th Squadron at Hickam AFB. We've got one motivator who sick of everyone's shit so he takes an ALL CAPS dump on the entire unit's chest. Thanks for a great 2019 and happy holidays from the entire squad. Make sure to tell your friends about us so you have more people to share the laughs with in 2020!

Dec 06, 2019
ZBT #221: Narwhal Tusks Are The Ultimate Weapon Of Opportunity

Round 1: Coming back from a long break is never easy. It's important to remember basic customs and courtesies. If not, you'll be like our pal in the Air Force who got a naughty letter because he told an NCO some harsh words. Hate to see it...

Round 2: We hop over to England to praise a group of incredibly brave folks who help used the greatest weapons of opportunity to stop the London Bridge attacker.

Round 6: You won't believe it, but two Marines got in a fight on Black Friday at a Walmart in Murrieta, California. No MCMAP moves were utilized, which certainly saved both men's lives!


Dec 03, 2019

Round 4: Marine Corps Sergeant Brendan VanDalinda, who has been diagnosed with cancer, went to the Patriots game on Sunday where he was honored with Super Bowl tickets and then dropped a pass from Tom Brady like a boot. We bring him on the show to discuss if he “followed it” or not.

ZBT #214: No-Nut November In The Barracks

Round 1: Canada is introducing “veteran villages” in Calgary and the places sound dope. Repacking negatives and tackling them head-on takes effort. Props to some organizations for making that effort. 

Round 2: Military families can be weird. If you don't believe us, listen to Podfathers. A family and some pals made a huge mistake by making some candy look like Crystal Meth on Kirtland AFB. Just a little meth goofin. 

Round 3: China is a bunch of cheaters when it comes to the military games. Chaps has zero issues with it and it's not because he's an integrity violator. 

Round 4: Malingerers worst nightmare is coming true. Science is developing technology to not only tell when you're sick but you'll know you're going to be sick 48 hours in advance. 

Round 5: Just because one of the dogs was involved in the Al-Baghdadi raid doesnt mean you should buy one, you idiots. These dogs are like alligators with fur. DO.NOT.BUY.ONE.THEY.ARE.TERRIBLE.PETS

Round 6: It's no-nut november. We wanna talk about cumming at boot camp or during training. Did you do it or nah?

Round 7: There's an elephant that is terrorizing his community so much that he's being called Osama Bin Laden. For real. They are calling the elephant Laden because he's such a terrorist. It's not funny that 5 people died….but kinda???

Round 2: Master Sergeant Matthew Williams, an active-duty Green Beret, received the Medal of Honor on Wednesday for actions during a 2008 Special Forces raid in Afghanistan that resulted in a 7 hour firefight. The story is incredible, you have to hear it.

Round 3: The Air Force isnt doing themselves any favors by introducing a new ‘R' device on their awards. We'll breakdown what that means and if it was a good idea

Round 4: The Marine Corps is overhauling their promotion requirements. Salty Lance Corporals will love it. Fast tracking boot ass SNCOs will hate it. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. 

Round 5: Interview with Guy Snodgrass, Secretary Mattis' speech writer who wrote a book about the behind the scenes action! The book is making waves so we invited Guy on to spill.the.tea.

Nov 01, 2019

Round 1: A veteran gets super veterany about trash that was blowing all over his precious, precious street. He needs three soldiers to come police call the area right damn now.

Round 5: Everyone's been talking about boobs after Game 5 of the World series when 2 ladies behind the duggout flashed ‘em. Perfect timing because we've got some military boob talk of our own!

ZBT #211: Oh Yeah, Stick It In My Porthole Baby

ROUND 1: Usually stalking is frowned upon, especially if it's naked stalking, but one Marine Scout Sniper wanted to strut his stuff & did just that.

ROUND 2: Have you ever been so in love with someone you let them take over the helm of your Guided Missile Destroyer? That was the case for one smitten Navy Commander who has since been fired some scandalous affair behavior. ::sassy:: Get ready to sip. some. tea.

ROUND 3: You may know that the Washington Nationals have adopted the song Baby Shark as a rally cry, but in a bit of world news we'll tell you why it's also become an important anthem for a country in the Middle East right now. 

ROUND 4: Everyone has heard that MRE's make you constipated, but is that really true? Science 

ROUND 5: Did General Mattis really say he'd rather “swallow acid than attend Trump's military parade”? A new book is claiming so & the Warrior Monk's camp is PISSED!

Round 1: A British soldier is going to jail for six months guessed it, purple nurples.

Round 2: The Iwo Jima flag raising is one of the most iconic images in history. The people credited for being in that photo recently changed. That changes the legacy of some families. 

Round 3: There's lots of aspects that we miss about being in the military. Having to use military bathrooms isnt one. It's not that they arent clean. They are. It's that the smell of 15 Marines taking tequila shits will change your life forever. 

Round 4: New Zealand's Navy will allow male sailors to wear fake eyelashes, nail polish, and make-up and I'm jealous as hell because my eyes would have popped even more in dress blues. 

Round 5: The United States has the 2nd largest nuclear arsenal in the world. We controlled those bad boys with the greatest technology that the world has even seen. Just kidding. We used and are using floppy disks!

Oct 22, 2019
ZBT #209: Medal Of Honor Recipient Kyle Carpenter

ROUND 1: It looks like a lot of military personnel are not puff-puff-passing their piss tests & studies are showing a big increase in marijuana use among troops in states where it's legal.

Round 1: The Barstool Sports Office is in a state of disarray. A gigantic mess left behind by Yankees fans has thrown PFC Bren onto the Battle Commander's radar (Erika Nardini) and that's not somewhere you want to be. What does Staff Sgt. Chaps have to say to him?

Round 2: The Army is working on a combat robot working dog. This is betrayal the likes have never been seen. 

Round 3: MSG Mark Allen, 46, was shot in the head on 9 July 2009 while on a mission to search for Bowe Bergdahl. Unfortunately, he passed away last week. Seeing his pictures and what he went through after that mission was gutting. It's important to remember what Mark's mission was like. We talked to someone in Bowe's platoon to drive that point home. 

Round 4: Fortnite went down on Sunday in the middle of a long weekend. Is the Army ESports team going to be okay? Yes, the Army has an Esports team!

ROUND 2: We've got an unreal story of bravery, selflessness & resilience from a soldier who stepped up to save lives during horrible training accident. 

ROUND 3: Holy micromanagement, Batman. This is a hot story about a coolin' problem as our forces in Europe are given new guidance on air conditioning units. 

ROUND 4: An Airman smashed a world record by bench pressing 551 got-damn pounds at a powerlifting competition and we're not that impressed because we're all pretty fit here at ZBT and could, like probably do that too. 

ROUND 5: The Marine Corps is getting SOFT as BABY SHIT because they want Marines to carry umbrellas. UMBRELLAS!

Round 6: A vigilante Marine tried to take down a cartel all by his lonesome. He didn't succeed but he did get taken into custody by NCIS! 

Oct 11, 2019
ZBT #206: A Presidential Turkey Soup Sandwich

Round 1: It's time for ALLL Navy folks to take advantage of our ad deals with Dollar Shave Club because you nasty little squids will no longer be able to get a permanent no-shave chit. 

Round 2: Any time we can take a dump on O-6s and above, we will. The towel policy at an Air Force Base is outrageous. We shame those senior leaders who allow it. 

Round 3: Kate sat down with the viral philly hero…. // Yep, an Army veteran saved people from a burning building, but he went viral for reasons involvin' the Eagles, yo go Birds

Round 4: October 7th was the 18th birthday for the war in Afghanistan. Now the war can vote, buy cigarettes and porn, and even enlist to fight itself WITHOUT its parent's permission. A lot has changed in the world in 18 years so we take a trip back in time.

Round 5: President Trump announced that the US will be leaving the Kurdish and Turkey border. Folks from both sides of the aisle are poo-pooing the decision. We try to wrap our brains around what's happening.

ROUND 1: A walrus defending her cubs sank a Russian Navy boat in the Arctic Ocean. Will Putin declare war on all sea mammals?

Round 3: Private Portnoy, better known as Cousin Mike and Dave Portnoy's father, joins the show to talk about his time in the Army

Round 4: Jaguars star Cornerback Jalen Ramsey demanded a trade last week. He wasnt traded. This week, he called and said that he was sick and wouldnt be showing up to practice. Who the fuck is his squad leader and I expect to see them both with a chit from medical by 0900.

Round 5: Cadets at the Citadel, perhaps the most prestigious military academy in the entire world, are going on a hunger strike over the food conditions at their dining hall. Glad to see these future officers exercising their rights to complain about everything!

ROUND 4: Maybe we really should be storming Area 51 because a member of Blink 182 got the Navy to confirm their existence. Say it ain't so, there's UFOs, take your pants off, they'll give butt probes!

Sep 20, 2019

Round 1: Boot Marine tackles the ever-loving-dog shit out of two teens who were fist-fighting. The Marine Corps' statement on the fight is a wild ride.

Round 2: City Chickens were taking over a hanger. An Army CWO authorized the use of airsoft guns via an official memo. This is the type of unit people think they are joining when they sign up. We'll tell you why. 

Round 3: The DoD issued strong warnings for military members, their spouses, and all dependents. STOP FUCKING VAPING. We have one message for you, DoD. Come and Take it.
