Want to toss mullets at Flo-bama with Skippy-san

No, this isn't an awsome idea for a Valour-IT fundraiser ... this is a "close but not quite" outline of the next episode of EagleOne and my talk show, Midrats.

In the small world of the Navy blogosphere, when you think of Japan one name should immediately come to mind; Skippy-san of the blog FarEastCynic.

Though most know Skippy by his "interesting" perspective on some of the "interesting" parts of life - what he also has is a good feel for the Japanese, and it is that part of this quasi-Renaissance man that we are going to tap in to.

Join EagleOne and me as we explore the serious side of the Navy blogosphere's famously infamous Skippy-san to talk about the very Japenese reaction to their earthquake-tsunami-nuclear meltdown national nightmare, and how the Navy and its relationship with the Japanese people is working through this challenge.

Staying with the 13XX side of the Navy, but with a slight pivot, for the second half of the hour we will be spending out time on a lighter subject - remembering the funnier side of Naval Aviation with Bob Taylor to talk about his new book, Getting Our Wings — Tales from Naval Aviation Flight School, that looks at flight training in much the same way as his previous book did with Marine Corps in
A Few Good Memories: Tales from USMC Boot Camp.

Join us live if you can and join in with the usual suspects in the chat room, but remember, if you miss the show or want to catch up on the ones you've missed - you can always reach the archives at blogtalkradio - or set yourself to get the podcast on iTunes.
