    Do you love Navy history? Go behind the scenes to discover the stories of sailors past and present in "Scuttlebutt and a Cup o' Joe," a new video podcast series from the National Museum of the American Sailor (NMAS). Each month, NMAS education staff interviews historians and active duty sailors to discover the work behind the exhibits and the people who strive to share the Navy's history of enlisted sailors.

    Episode 1: Underwater Archaeology
    “Scuttlebutt and a Cup o’ Joe” kicked off in May 2021 aboard the Naval History and Heritage Command’s Underwater Archaeology research vessel. We traveled to the Patuxent River in Maryland and heard how the underwater archaeologists search for shipwrecks and aircraft wrecks. Watch now to learn about the work of these real life academic treasure hunters.

    Episode 2: RTC Looks Back at COVID-19
    It’s safe to say 2020 was a historic year for everyone, but a pandemic couldn’t stop the “Quarterdeck of the Navy” from training new sailors. In June, we spoke with HM3 Ryan Labita, who was stationed at Recruit Training Command throughout the pandemic. HM3 Labita discusses his role as a Hospital Corpsman Dental Technician and how RTC was forced to adapt in the midst of COVID-19 in episode 2.

    Next Month on “Scuttlebutt”
    In July, we celebrate Independence Day with the NHHC historian of America’s ship of state, the USS Constitution. Historian Margherita Desy plays “Six Degrees of Constitution,” linking the historic ship to eras you may not expect. She also shares how she researches the lives of enlisted sailors and recounts her experiences sailing aboard Constitution.

    Later this year, “Scuttlebutt” takes you into the office of Naval Station Great Lakes’ Executive Officer, Captain Kenneth Williams, chats with artifact conservators in Washington DC, and recounts the experiences of a Navy historian stationed near the Pentagon on 9/11. Watch all episodes of “Scuttlebutt and a Cup o’ Joe” on the museum's website:
