Had an interesting Monday morning (Late Sunday afternoon in the U.S.) listening live to the "Midrats". It is the webcast of CDR Salamander.
First time I have done that live. The topic was OK but very broad. What is important about this is that you have some of the biggest names associated with blogging on U.S. Navy issues present and they invite various policy wonks and such on as guests with a Q and A.
I would imaging Sals' consultancy (if he had one) could charge a big hourly rate. However he gives his experience for free.
I always enjoy his blog. If you can, check out his weekly webcast.
