Outpost Outspoken, the official biweekly podcast of U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) that debuted in December, is now available on a variety of popular streaming services.

While still available for listening at the Defense Visual Information Distribution Site at https://www.dvidshub.net/podcast/498/outpost-outspoken, it can now also be found on Amazon Music, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher Radio.

Those with Amazon’s popular Alexa service, for example, can ask the virtual assistant to play the most recent episode of the podcast.

The podcast’s name derives from the post’s newspaper, published continually since 1951 and known as The Outpost since 1981. The newspaper is a unifying force that highlights the totality of YPG’s test mission-- a person who reads each issue gets a much broader view of YPG than he or she would from their desk or work area alone.

Unlike some Army newspapers, the overwhelming majority of The Outpost’s content is produced by writers on post, as opposed to generic ‘filler’ material distributed by the Department of the Army.

Outpost Outspoken is guided by this same ethos and released every two weeks. In the most recent episode, Ruben Hernandez of YPG's Engineering Support Branch talks about the science of geodesy and YPG Heritage Center Curator Bill Heidner discusses the museum's future.
