Scout Nation

About The Show

Scout Nation is a term that covers listeners from all over the world. One day, a weird tweet went out, which was followed with an email, which prompted a phone call. Combine that with a couple of Skype calls, and an idea was born…Not to take away from any other shows, we thought about having discussions that focus on what works for us…

We hope to have monthly guests, who can help offer insight, thoughts and ideas on what makes their units work. We will also have discussions on Troop SOPs, troop size, recruiting, and any other topics that come up.

About The Hosts

Bryan: I have been in Scouting since my Mom dropped me off at a Cub Scout meeting as a Bobcat and left after I earned my Eagle Scout at 17 years 13 months :)

I rejoined Scouting years later when my son became a Tiger Scout. Since then I have been a Den Leader, a Webelos Leader, a Troop Committee Member, and an Assistant Scoutmaster. In March of 2008 I was asked to be the Scoutmaster of my son’s Troop, I accepted and have been going full bore every since.

I believe in Scouting and love the program. I firmly believe in the Scout-Led Troop and enjoy training the guys and then watching them grow.

I am honored to be asked to join PTC and hope you enjoy listening to me as much as I enjoy talking :)

Scoutmaster Shawn: I am going into my 8th year of scouting.  In that time, I have been a Den Leader, Cubmaster, Committee Chair, District Training Chair, Unit Commissioner. My current position is Scoutmaster with Troop 1363 and Pack Trainer with Pack 4363.

I love the program, and have a passion for scouting that my wife thinks is a bit “obsessive”…but I have seen firsthand the maturation of my sons, and what the scouting program has done for both of them.

Being a part of PTC is an honor, and I am glad to start this new venture with another great scouter!
