Unfortunately, NHP has become the target of spambots. In order to combat this, I’ve had to put anti-spam measures in place on this website. If you attempt to register, or if you get kicked off, and you believe this to be due to an error in my anti-spam software, please drop me a note at battlestations $$$ navalhistotypodcast dot com (substituting the at symbol for the dollar signs and formatting the address properly) Sorry for the inconvenience!
A listener has brought to my attention that the teaser and the first episode of NHP are no longer available on iTunes. I suspect the problem lies with my WordPress feed and I’m working on resolving the issue. Until then, I’m hoping that all episodes will continue to be available here on the NHP website.
