Zero Blog Thirty is a military podcast presented by Barstool  Sports that's listenable for the most crusty of veterans, the bootest of boots, or people who have never touched a weapon in their life. Through the eyes of enlisted Marines and a West Point trained officer, Zero Blog Thirty is like sitting at the online-bar of the VFW and having a virtual cold one with your buddies.

ZBT #183: Live From Fayetteville for Rough N Rowdy

The squad is in Fayettenam ahead of tonight's Rough N Rowdy event. Make sure to buy your PPV at

Round 1:  Should we weaponize ticks? Congress wants research into how we could use these little fuckers to decimate entire civilizations. 

Round 2: The fact that “flying infantryman on hoverboard” wasnt an MOS when we joined makes us feel cheated. One lucky French soldier got to fly all over the Bastille Day parade. 

Round 3: The new commandant wants to implement rules on social media? Will that work? Not if we block and mute all our NCOs it wont.  

Round 4: A bunch of boogereaters are planning on storming Area 51. How do the people on base prepare for something like that?

Round 4: A Marine got promoted from LCpl to Sgt in the same day. Sounds like a motivator, right? Wrong. Wait until you hear about this command fuck up. 

Round 5: The Army is introducing audiobooks for their field manuals. Good idea or bad? We think it's gonna backfire bigtime and we'll explain why it round 5.

Round 6: There is nothing more special than deployment porn. We honor that porn by honoring those who honored porn in Iraq.

Round 3: Interview with Astronaut Scott Kelly. He's been to infinity and beyond. NBD

Round 4: A Navy base has been playing the national anthem on the emergency broadcast system every morning. People from 5 miles away can hear it in their living rooms. Lock your bodies if you can hear it.

June 6th, 1944… Our troops were in the midst of the largest seabourne invasion in world history as Western Allied forces initiated the effort to liberate western Europe from Nazi Germany.
