WHi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, April 30, 2023, and this is show number 938.
This week instead of panhandling for money to support the Podfeet Podcasts, I’m going to do a little podcast swap promotion. I’d like to take a moment to tell you about a unique new podcast called: ‘So There I Was.’ If you’re a fan of aviation or simply enjoy hearing captivating stories, then this is the podcast for you. Hosted by former Marine pilots “Fig & RePete,” this podcast shares first-hand accounts of flying experiences that will have you on the edge of your seat. You may know RePete as Pilot Pete.
The guys not only tell their own stories from the comedic to the harrowing, they interview other pilots with amazing tales of adventure in the sky. Hear from fighter pilots, astronauts, Blue Angels, aircraft carrier captains, Navy & Coast Guard rescue pilots, and many more. Most have survived near-death experiences. Others have overcome incredible disabilities to continue to fly airplanes.
I listened to a recent episode where the guys interviewed 97-year-old retired US Navy Capt Royce Williams while he told the story of how he single-handedly shot down 4 Russian MiGs in his Panther aircraft during the Korean War when it was Top Secret that the Russians were fighting against it. Not only is it an amazing story, but listening to how the incredible level of respect the guys had for Captain Williams was heartwarming.
The show does have a log of aviation jargon in it, but they’ve actually created a glossary over at sothereiwas.us/… if you want to learn more about these terms.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll laugh until you cry, but one thing is certain: You won’t be bored! “So There I Was: It’s how ALL great aviation tales begin”. Look for So There I Was in your podcatcher of choice.
