The Association of the U.S. Army is releasing three new podcasts in August as part of its relaunched “Army Matters” series.

First up is a two-part series focused on what the next generation of Army leaders think, featuring ROTC and Junior ROTC cadets.

Many of today’s Army leaders started out as cadets in ROTC or Junior ROTC. AUSA digs deeper to find out what the youth in the programs today think about the Army and the world around them.

During these next two episodes, JROTC cadets Jake Ryan Witt of Conroe High School in Texas and Easten Jenn of Leilehua High School in Hawaii, along with ROTC cadets Kyle Fernandez of Bowie State University and Catherine Blotevogel of Georgetown University, discuss their programs, the benefits and difficulties of service and how the Army could improve recruiting. They also share their thoughts on topics like climate change, mental health, social media and more.

The first part of the series is available Aug. 2. The second episode is available Aug. 16.

Next up is a podcast on the Army’s revived “Be All You Can Be” campaign, featuring Majs. Julian Gilbert and Casey Sherrod from the Army Enterprise Marketing Office.

The majors will discuss the next wave of the Army’s campaign as it works to attract and recruit talent across the country.

The podcast is available Aug. 30.
