4 Reasons Why All Norwich Corps Grads and Current Cadets Should Subscribe

#1 The Second Mess podcast is a Powerful Networking Tool.

You’ve already earned your spot in the Norwich family—I’ll help you get to know it. Each week I’ll introduce you to different members of the Norwich network whose experiences span more than 70 years. No two guests are alike. But they all have at least one thing in common with you—their lives and careers were shaped by their time on the Hill in Partridge’s Corps of Cadets.

#2 The Second Mess Podcast is Entertaining.

Episodes are packed with Norwich stories you’ve never heard, told by the very people who lived them, in their own words.

#3 The Second Mess Podcast is Educational.

You will learn something new & useful in each episode.

#4 Help keep the Norwich flame burning.

Human beings teach, learn, and celebrate via storytelling. When you subscribe, you are essentially ordering more Norwich stories. The Second Mess Podcast is our fire. It’s up to us to keep the flames burning. We cannot rely on the university to do it for us.
