An Arts, Government and Organizations podcast featuring Bill Nowicki
 1 person rated this podcast
During the height of the cold war when Ronald Regan called the Soviet Union the evil empire, Bill Nowicki was in the Navy. He was a nuclear-trained electrician's mate aboard the Los Angeles class fast attack submarine, the USS Minneapolis / St. Paul (SSN 708) with 100 highly trained shipmates. These are the memories of those difficult (and sometimes hilarious) times told by the men who depended on one another for their lives.

Submariner through and through, PJ Clarke
PJ Clarke made a rash decision to join the submarine service. He was promised that the galley was open 24/7. That was enough to get him to volunteer. Serving on the Snook and the Billfish, his career spanned 9 years and included West Pacs and spec ops that would make Tom Clancy’s novels look tame. He put in the time and effort to get qualified in submarines and learned what he could accomplish anything he put his mind to. The “shack” aboard the USS Billfish SSN 676
From Subs to the Internet of Things, Rob Tiffany, CTO of Hitachi
Rob Tiffany grew up in West Texas and set off to become a Navy pilot after seeing Top Gun. Of course, that didn’t work out, but he found the submarine service and had some great mentors. He ended serving on the USS John Marshal that was outfitted to serve as a seal delivery submarine. Rob talks about his seal friends and the rest of his career. Rob got into computer programming and ended up finding work in several high tech startups. Currently, he is serving as Chief Technology Officer for Hitachi and he credits a lot of his success to his time in the submarine service.
EP47, Royal Navy Artificer and Officer, David Cunningham
David grew up on the West Coast of Scotland and was surrounded by water. His Mom said he always talked about joining the Navy, but he doesn’t remember why. He joined as an Artificer Apprentice in 1983. This position was created back in the Victorian Era as the amount of technical work required on ships increased. David learned the book information and then he learned from a salty guy that he didn’t know it all. From then on, David’s real education began. David did some “sneaky” patrols and eventually became an officer, commanding the very place where he learned to be an artificer. Pretty cool.
