Only On The Midwatch

Well wouldn't you know it? A few submariners got together and thought that somebody might want to listen to what they had to say...go figure. This show is a laid back spot for those who have, and quite possibly still are out there doing God's work with US Military. No feelings, no bad blood, all of the opinions but even more laughs. Enjoy shooting the sh*t with us, here! Only On The Midwatch.

What's better than having one great meme page admin on the show? Having 2 great meme page admins! RC_Cumsock is on this episode and I am pumped that he was willing to come on. Thank you to 69 Fathoms for hooking that up. We had such an awesome time. I'll apologize now for the retelling of the same welcome to your first boat story... I may or may not have been drinking. Enjoy!

DGUTS Leadership!
The first time was just too good to leave it there. Back on the show is the DGUTS Podcast host providing a lot of food for thought concerning leadership. He has a very upfront and extreme ownership mentality when it comes to this topic and I think its great to hear someone in a senior leadership who is active duty spreading this message. I hope you guys enjoy the talk and if you want more of DGUTS, visit the website at and checkout the new shop at

DGUTS Podcast Host on Leadership
This was one of my favorite conversations on the show thus far. The Host of Don't Give Up The Ship Podcast or DGUTS Podcast was willing to have a long chat with me about leadership and his mission with his projects. It was an incredible conversation and thrust me back into the spirit of a Second Class Petty Officer looking to make positive change in the work space and community. I love how candid and true he really is and I am sure you all will appreciate that as well. This man has got a real passion for leadership and we look forward to having him come back on to further this discussion. Let us know what you guys think by hitting us up on instagram, or sending us a message here! Thanks

Season Opener with Jessie Barnes
If you are an OG listener of the show, you know Jessie and her story. She's back to help us kick off Season 3 of the Only On The Midwatch Podcast and begin a mini-series of episodes we will be doing with her. Jessie is a great person to talk to considering her resume and the fact that she's a hard charger. We hope that she can pass on some valuable info to all of you would be submariners and current sailors out there looking for a nudge in the right direction, all while having some laughs! Thanks for rocking with us guys. We hope you enjoy!

Nick has been a great friend that our team met at the beginning of the TESTDEPTH journey.

Had a great time talking with ITS1 (SS) Jessie Barnes the Navy's first female submariner/scuba diver.

OTM #3 Josh & Ellison
Well, we realized that you guys may not know much about us. So, we decided to take the time to provide a little back story and entertain you folks with some accounts of the ridiculous moments we found ourselves in starting out in the Navy. We hope you enjoy laughing at us. Thanks again for continuing to listen and don't forget to tell others about our show!

OTM #2 USN CWO Brian Browne
Despite no-one traveling as hard as the People's Warrant, we were able to get CWO Brian Browne to talk with us while out on his military travels. Through an hour so of trouble shooting technology, we were able to ghetto-rig a long distance podcast recording set up. Though it created some complications on playback you might notice, the conversation was great and we all had a great time remembering times in the Submarine Force. We were psyched to get the chance to have Brian on our show and hopefully in the future, he will continue to return to the Only On The Midwatch Podcast.
