What a cool spin on the podcast recommendation topic! I don't think I've ever formally been introduced to the NATO phonetic alphabet, and your recommended podcasts sound intriguing as well.

Thanks, and welcome to Hacker Public Radio!

Thanks very much for this, it was a wonderful little episode. I heard this on a plane with all the noise surrounding me, it was interesting to re-listen to it with my headphone noise cancellation off and work out how good it was at carrying information when there is a lot of background noise :)

We called it fife, not five

If I'm not mistaken, they taught us fife for 5 and tree for 3 when I was in the army.
