Today, SB Nation and the Vox Media Podcast Network launched the newest team-focused podcast, Against All Enemies. The new show highlights the accomplishments, rivalries, and passion that make athletics at the three United States service academies – Army, Navy, and Air Force – so unique.
The show will be hosted by U.S. Naval Academy graduates Lieutenant (LT) Justin Mears and Lieutenant (LT) Austin Lanteigne, U.S. Air Force Academy graduate Scott Lopez, and Army National Guard veteran Specialist (SPC) Kaylah Jackson. Mears also serves as the manager for SB Nation’s Against All Enemies.
“SB Nation is devoted to offering the best communities to every team we cover, and we’re thrilled to launch a podcast for the service academy community,” said SB Nation Director of Team Brands John Ness. “Army, Navy, and Air Force athletics are a source of passion and pride for countless alumni, fans, and veterans across the country and we’re proud to devote coverage to a community that knows, in the words of its founding editor, ‘what it means to compete and what it means to serve.’”
The show will cover news from all of the nearly 30 different sports offered by the service academies, specifically focusing on football and men’s and women’s basketball. The hosts will interview current and former service academy athletes, coaches, and fans as they share the storied legacies of Army, Navy, and Air Force sports. The show’s name is a reference to the oath all academy student-athletes take to defend the U.S. Constitution.
The first episode of Against All Enemies, available today, includes an interview with Billy Hurley III, the only veteran on the PGA tour, as well as a preview of the Army vs. Navy lacrosse game taking place on Saturday, April 13. New episodes will be published each week. Audiences can download or stream the episode across all podcast listening platforms, and listeners can subscribe for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or in their favorite podcast app so that they never miss an episode.
