Team RWB's Eagle Nation podcast

Team RWB has joined the network of Veteran-focused podcasts with the launch of its Eagle Nation podcast.

In a multimedia world, it’s important for organizations to take advantage of different platforms to reach their audience.

“We want to share our mission and some ‘Eagle fire’ with those who aren’t really familiar with our organization,” said Dan Brostek, Team RWB communications director. “It’s a  great format to get after important topics in a meaningful and respectful way.”

The new show currently has three episodes ready for listeners. The opening  episodes feature interviews with GORUCK founder Jason McCarthy and recent Ranger School graduate Lisa Jaster.

The podcast is an interview-based show hosted by different RWB leaders including Blayne Smith, executive director at RWB. It follows the format of Veterans talking to Veterans, with an emphasis on how Team RWB understands and helps meet the needs of Veterans as they transition out of the military.

The Eagle Nation podcast is planned to be a weekly publication and is available on iTunes or at Team RWB website. You can listen to the episode with Lisa Jaster using the player below:

If you want to be a part of the show, Team RWB invites you to send any ideas, comments or questions to Follow them on Twitter at @TeamRWB and use the hashtag #EaglePodcast.
