Welcome to SQUAD – a brand new podcast brought to you by the military children’s charity Little Troopers.
Hosted by TV and radio presenter, Katie Thistleton, and Leicester Tigers rugby player, Thom Smith, this series is the first of its kind to shine a light on the life of teenagers who have loved ones serving in the British Armed Forces.
Across the series, we speak to 15 teens who share their stories of deployment, schools, moving home, living abroad and forming friendships. Expect lots of laughs, honest chat and good advice about how to make the most of Armed Forces life.
In this first episode, we meet four military teens who share their weird, wonderful and most memorable moments of their military journey so far; from hurricane evacuations to receiving scorpions in the post, we learn what a wild ride this really can be.
