A fun collection of sea stories from a variety of people. Bill goes out of his way to really let the people tell their tales and each one is so unique. If your a Bubblehead it’ll take ya back. If not it like listening in to buddies reliving the good ole days.

I really enjoy hearing the stories from submariners about their boat and their experiences. The host, Bill, is friendly and kind.

Really fascinating, funny and engaging submarine stories. Gives you a window in to what it was like to serve on a sub in the Cold War period. Please keep them coming.

I don't have a military background but this podcast totally has a wonderful, universal appeal. I've gotten a great deal of inspiration from the character again and again displayed by the wide range of individuals that Mr. Nowicki has given the opportunity to share with him (and us) their...Read full review »

My dad was a Corman based out of the Brooklyn Navy yard circa late 60’s. Due to his top 90% scores he was (highly suggested) asked to do a stint on a sub to see if he liked it. He was put on a diesel trainer, he was a “on the water” guy. I have many many stories and there are a couple books out...Read full review »

Brings back many memories. Thanks Bill

Would be great if more emphasis was put onto stories of actual events related to the submarine or deployment. Good podcast though and interesting to listen to.

I’ve just discovered this podcast and while the current episode is in the 40’s, I’m only on E02. But this is great stuff. Why didn’t anyone do this before? What a great initiative and what funny stories we get here. The popcorn-story, I’d never thought it could happen on a sub! And the...Read full review »

Mr
I am a frustrated sailor, although I sailed on yachts which isn't quite the same. I always fancied going to sea for a career, but on the sea not in it. These podcasts, had they been available when I was leaving school would have attracted me to the submariner career. The advice that Bill got when...Read full review »

All the things you never talked about from your submarine experiences comes alive in these fantastic stories. I've always tried to explain to people about my time as a submariner and this sums it ALL up. Bill does a great job asking the questions to keep the interviews interesting. ...Read full review »

Four episodes in and I'm completly hooked! Listening to these podcasts sure brings back a flood of memories of my time on submarines. I highly recommend it to my fellow submariners, active and veteran. I also highly recommend it to anybody considering joining the submarine force (and your...Read full review »

Thanks, Bill. This is great. It brings back some good and bad memories. Mostly good.

As I listened to EP 1, my mind went back to my years spent on Carbonero SS 337 and Halibut SGN 587 out of Hawaii. These days there's not much occasion to talk about those pre-boomer cruises and nobody to talk to about it anyhow. But I sure enjoyed hearin my two fellow-bubbleheads swappin...Read full review »

Fantastic podcast. Great insight in to life underwater. Kudos!

I was a corpsman for 8 years and didn't know much about submarines. This podcast is wonderful. I wish there were more navy podcasts. Keep up the good work!!Read full review »

Re: Episode 30. So great to listen to RAdm Beers after all these years. He was a strong influence on me to go into submarines. In the summer of 1976, as a Midshipman on summer cruise aboard USS Hammerhead, he actually let me bring the boat to periscope depth, on the periscope by myself! Will...Read full review »

What a awesome concept for a show. Bill is such a great host and really brings the entertainment!

3.5 years on SSN 704, 2 years on L.Y. Spear, 14 months on MSP in the fabulous 80s. 708 was awesome. Joined the boat during Med run in 88. Best Eng. Dept ever.

Enjoy listening to the funny stories. Very entertaining and informative. Thanks

Episode 40 is tops! Michael Goldstein’s erudition is impeccable. A fascinating episode, rich in detail.
MikeViolette via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/16
These podcasts are superb and give a humorous and sometimes serious fascinating inside into life on board and off submarines. I listen to this on long journey and thanks to Bill these journeys feel a lot shorter. Thanks and keep up the good work. UK listener.

I'm a loly SkimmerPuke but I still loved the few that I downloaded to pass the time driving my Semi down the road, I spent time on a Subtender, NTS Keypost, NavFac CoosHead and got out on the tugs at SubBaseBangor, so I can relate to some of the stories. Keep up the Great Work!!Read full review »

Hi, searched out this topic to help work up a spaceship culture for a sci fi novel. Figured a submarine is pretty similar in that you can't just walk outside. Enjoying the stories just for the sake of them and getting more insight into individual personalities than expected. Your questions...Read full review »

I am enjoying each episode! You should too!
KBzeroNMQ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/15
Great podcast Bill. I love the stories - everyone loves a war story. That’s the greatest thing about being in the military is that we all have some amazing stories. Much more interesting than stories about sitting in a factory or in an office. :) Keep up the great content! Thank you for your...Read full review »

I joined the Navy in 1974, and though women were not on submarines until recently, the stories of camaraderie, cruises, ports of call and general Navy life are heartwarming and really interesting. The format of chatting with the guests is like sitting around the kitchen table with a cup of bilge...Read full review »
