MICHAEL HYATT | Success Starts with Your Thinking
01:05:33

Our mind is the most powerful thing we can control. And, yet, if you’re anything like me, you don’t spend nearly enough time training the mind to produce the results you desire. In fact, if things don’t seem to be working well in my life, I tend to be a man who just goes even harder hoping I can drive right through the problems I’m dealing with.

Instead, my guest today, Michael Hyatt, makes the case that the stories and narratives (often subconscious) in our minds actually dictate much of the results we experience. So, today, we dive deep into how to retrain the mind to draft stories that serve us rather than hurt us, the value of listening to the “narrator” of your life, why we should all really listen to the language we’re using, how to interrogate the stories of your life, and create a new, fundamental sense of identity.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The story we tell ourselves impacts the results we achieve
  • Separating facts from the meaning we assign
  • How to determine if your stories are serving you
  • Understanding the “narrator” in your head
  • Correlation doesn’t equal causation
  • Mindset can change your physiological response
  • Lead ourselves well before we can lead others well
  • The impact of labeling ourselves
  • Strategies for changing your thinking

BRETT BARTHOLOMEW | Leading Through Chess, Not Checkers
01:01:57

We all want to lead. But not all of us can do so. Not right now but that doesn’t mean we aren’t capable of  becoming the leader we desire to be. My guest today is Brett Bartholomew, a word-class performance coach and he is going to share exactly how we can begin to lead in our families, businesses, and communities more effectively.

Today, we talk about six driving factors of individuals, the four main communication styles and how to use the effectively, how power, influence, and manipulation can be wielded for good, the use of “referent power,” and how leaders play chess, not checkers.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Commitment and compliance
  • Tailoring your communication and messaging
  • Building teams with different personality types
  • The baseline of communication is misunderstanding
  • Some people are just interested in making you the enemy
  • Impression management is a form of communication
  • Messages have to be repeated
  • Selective and strategic self-disclosure

DANNY BOLTON | Tapping Back Into Our Primal Nature
01:12:10

As young boys, the world is quite literally our playground. It seems so full of questions waiting to be answered and mysterious places to discover and explore. It’s in our nature to run, jump, play and unlock the secrets that call to us. Then, as we become men, we lose a lot of the natural curiosity and desire to traverse the world around us. The world around us often become more like a jail cell than the playground we remember of our youth.

My guest today is a man who has not lost a bit of the curiosity and excitement of his youth. If anything, he has cultivated it. His name is Danny Bolton. Today, you’re going to hear how to recapture that magic. We talk about how hesitation hurts us, a man’s need to play, creating an enemy to fight against, the analogy of the wolf, sheep, and sheep herder, the power of being ready for anything, and how to tap back into our primal nature.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Taking the life of an animal in the most humane and efficient way possible
  • Letting out your “animal” side
  • How to get started expressing your wild side
  • Some stress is great, but we stress about too much
  • Do we need to have some type of “enemy” to confront
  • We tend to choose the path of least resistance
  • Considering risk in the decision making process
  • Underestimating risk in the moment
  • Pressure of performing/shooting around other people

Setting Faith-Based Goals, Competing with Yourself vs. Others, and Dating Challenges | ASK ME ANYTHING
01:16:36

In this week’s ASK ME ANYTHING, Kipp Sorensen and Shawn Villalovos take on the hottest questions of the week. Hit Ryan up on Instagram at @ryanmichler and share what’s working in your life. 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

 

(5:40) Do you have a faith based goal for 2023? If so how are you choosing to measure this in order to manage it and show progress in an area that sometimes is based more off of feeling or, when tangibly measured, can seem like action without faith?

 

(19:05) What are your thoughts on compassion fatigue, and what to do to revitalize my passion for mentoring others?

 

(32:38) I have been seeing someone for 3 months now and we've said we want to be official but she has some bad bf history that is keeping her from doing so (her words). We've had a conversation about it and she has communicated that she's still concerned that i may have some red flags she hasn't seen yet and wont take the next step. It seems the longer she doesn't find something the more certain she is they exist. Most of what she has said she wants seem like what you develop over a year or more relationship.  I have been patient as I have dealt with similar stuff myself but I am struggling to not feel the consistent "no not yet" as a form of rejection. its getting to the point that Im losing interest despite her being a wonderful woman with great communication. What can I/we do to work through this before I completely walk away?

 

(41:10) How do y’all balance the mindsets of competing with yesterday’s version of yourself and competing with others? Do y’all think that these mindsets are at odds with one another or complimentary?

 

(50:00) How do you disengage from all social media, when most of your friends and family live out of state, and you buy and sell things on FB marketplace all the time?

 

(55:15) I’m dating a girl, she told me there is another guy she has been dating longer she is might be getting serious with. I told her I didn't really care about her and what other guys are doing - that I am going to keep asking her out as long as I'm single, interested, and she is available. What's your suggestion for keeping my mind off the competition and focused on us?

 

(1:03:05) I would like to hear more on raising daughters. My oldest is a girl, nearly 11, and my wife and I struggle with how to handle her exposure to things that she isn’t ready for yet. We homeschool her and she is very bright but we’ve caught her on websites that she shouldn’t be on and she has been calling things sexist etc. she doesn’t fully grasp what some of these things mean but I am starting to have deeper conversations with her and my wife on a regular basis. Any other tips would be great!

SETEMA GALI | Set the Standard
01:07:07

Every single day, we’re faced with choices that will either help or hinder us and move us closer to our goals and desires or further away. What we decide in those moments will determine our ultimate results. And, if we’re not satisfied with our current reality, it’s safe to assume that we made choices that did not serve us well.

Today I’m joined by former NFL Super Bowl Champion and Results Coach, Setema Gali to talk about these choices. We also cover the power of decisiveness, making certain that our priorities don’t merely get the leftovers, the level of commitment required to thrive and win, the positive benefits of guilt and shame, the dangers of false humility, and the trap of self-martyrdom and victimization.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Setting the standard for your kids
  • Need to balance discipline with letting your kids be kids
  • The importance of establishing clear agreements with your family
  • Family values
  • Building champs instead of chumps
  • We can experience emotion without it becoming our identity
  • What we focus on most is who we become
  • Conflicting thoughts about money and morals
  • Our commitment alters everything
  • We’re not victims, we get to choose
  • Empower yourself by taking responsibility

SHAWN RYAN | Do Something About It
01:10:13

It’s easy to get caught up in complaining without moving into the next logical step – solutions. Let’s be honest, there is a lot to complain about in today’s cultural and political climate. But unless we’re willing to do something about the injustices we see in society, complaining is nothing more than empty gestures and platitudes. It was Plato who said, “The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

Today, I’m joined by former Navy SEAL and cultural podcast host, Shawn Ryan. We talk about why politics and entertainment seem to be more about creating controversy than anything else, the hypocrisy in elected officials on both sides of the aisle, the impending danger of an open US border and Chinese globalization, raising kids in positivity, and why instead of simply complaining, we must be willing and able to do something about it.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Outrage culture
  • Hypocrisy coming out of the conservative side
  • Switching party as a publicity stunt
  • The race to win artificial intelligence
  • Contributing to the solution
  • The biggest problem our country is facing
  • The country needs someone to bring it together
  • The possibility of getting involved in politics
  • People need to take responsibility for raising their own kids
  • Don’t just complain, do something

NICK BARE | Forward Thinking, Backward Planning
01:10:29

Men, as you’re thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions, it’s easy to become trapped in day-dreaming . So many men look forward to what they want to accomplish but rarely do they calculate the plan to achieve their objectives and, most importantly, take the actions necessary.

Today, I am joined by former Army Ranger and founder of Bare Performance Nutrition, Nick Bare. We discuss removing ego from the equation, looking at life as a series of “sprints,” managing expectations with important people in your life, keeping yourself from becoming resentful and callused towards others, and the power of “forward thinking and backward planning.”

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Men bond over working hard

NICK KOUMALATSOS | Become a Warrior in the Garden
01:09:20

I think it’s safe to assume that if you’re listening to this podcast, you’re a man who is interested in becoming a more capable man. Unfortunately, the men who have come before us have, in a lot of ways, made it possible for us not to have to step up the way we as men ought to – as “savage servants.”

 

Today, I am joined by Nick Koumalatsos – a former member of Marine Reconnaissance – to talk about what it means to be a “Savage Servant.” We also discuss physical fitness as the foundation of what it means to be a man, why we must fabricate struggle, positive programming, and personal growth through humility.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • We don’t have to make the mistakes of our parents
  • Gaining vision for your life at a young age
  • Balance between a giving your kids a better life and fabricating challenges
  • Sons generally look like their father
  • Positive programming with your sons
  • We need to put effort into our kids
  • Moving past judgment of others
  • Humility is being a savage servant
  • If you prepare, you are less likely to need it
  • Our foundational anchor is physical fitness and health

GRANGER SMITH | Finding Faith and Hope in God
01:11:00

Finding our sense of worth as men can be an extremely daunting task. We’re often led to believe that if we say just the right things, do all the things we should be doing, and achieve the success society has deemed appropriate, we’ll find what we’re looking for.

 

Unfortunately, many of us are left with a sense of emptiness in spite of our worldly success. My guest today is my good friend Granger Smith. Today, we tackle a conversation we really haven’t had on the podcast as we talk about self-worth, the danger in the “love yourself” message, why cultural Christianity doesn’t cut it, feeling like a fraud, and ultimately finding faith and hope in God.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Do things that are intrinsically meaningful
  • Determining when enough is enough
  • How to take the power away from critics
  • The problem with superficial, cultural Christianity
  • We are only worthy through God
  • Why does suffering exist?
  • We need challenges and hardship to refine us
  • Sometimes “self-help” isn’t enough
  • Always moving forward
  • We need to stop thinking about ourselves first

KEITH YACKEY | The 5 Dials to a Powerful Marriage
01:11:59

Marriage is one of the most challenging yet rewarding pursuits for a man. Unfortunately, very few of us have ever been taught how to successfully navigate the dynamics between men and women. And, all too often, it leads to headache, heartbreak, and divorce.

Today, I’m joined by marriage expert Keith Yackey to talk about these dynamics and how to successfully build a long and thriving marriage. We talk about the ROI (return of intimacy) in marriage, how a man gains his power back after giving it away, the “mommy matrix,” why seeking her validation will backfire, and the 5 dials of a powerhouse marriage.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Thriving in business vs thriving in marriage
  • Five dials that help men measure effectiveness
  • Women want you to be a good parent
  • Women want you to be her partner
  • Women want you to be a producer
  • Women want you to have fun
  • Women want you to do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it
  • Become the guy that any woman would be thrilled to be with

JONATHAN GILLIAM | Sheep No More
52:17

With as much craziness and violence we see in public these days, it’s crucial that we as men learn how to effectively protect and defend ourselves and those we love. Fortunately, with a little intentionality and planning it’s not all that difficult to keep ourselves and others safe.

Today, I’m joined by Former Navy SEAL, FBI Agent, and Federal Air Marshall, Jonathan Gilliam to talk about how to do just that. We cover the concept of preparation versus paranoia, the default of awareness, when to get involved in situations and when not to, the “crawl, walk, run” theory, and recognizing and neutralizing threats before they occur.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The difference between paranoia and preparation
  • The danger of complacency
  • Know God before you can achieve anything
  • Groupthink is rampant and out of control
  • Evil thoughts are often emotional and not logical

BRECKEN MICHLER | The Adventure of a Lifetime (Our Moose Hunting Story)
45:46

Hunting is not only something that provides a challenge and sustains life for many of us, as it has for countless generations.  But it also provides unique and powerful opportunities to build bonds between those with whom we share these experiences.  Last week, I had the opportunity to share such an experience with my son, Brecken, as we set out on a moose hunt in the wilderness of northern Maine.

 

On today’s episode, Brecken and I share the story of how we harvested a beautiful bull moose in an epic hunt, filled with disappointments, missed shots, but ultimately success…and how the greatest success of all had nothing to do with hunting.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Drawing the lucky moose tag
  • Getting settled into camp
  • The moose habitat in Maine
  • Early opportunities in the hunt
  • Success on the last day

BRIAN KILMEADE | An Overdose of Information
42:48

With as much information available to us this day and age, it’s hard to decipher which information to consume and which we should be listening to in the first place. Everywhere we turn, we’re inundated with sensational headlines designed to capture our eyeballs, not necessarily keep us informed.

Today, I’m joined by TV and Radio host and political commentator on Fox News, Brian Kilmeade. We cover a wide range of topics including the shifting of the Overton Window in media, the course correction America needs, how to determine which information is worth pursuing, what role the American citizen plays in this, the overdose of information we’re all dealing with.

  • Predictions for who is running in the next presidential election
  • The evolving role of a newscaster
  • The shifting Overton window regarding gender issues

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

(6:00) What’s your thoughts on the current FBI raids on conservative/Christian men?

(7:40) How do you know when you should leave a steady pay check for your own business?

(12:00) What would be some tactics we could use to expand or move beyond this box (constructed of our previous experiences) if the current situation that we find ourselves in, while not ideal, has put us in a better position than anything we have yet to experience?

(25:00) How can I help my kids overcome new fears, which have surfaced after separating from my wife?

(30:40) How do you build a group of men around you that goes deeper than surface level?

(48:40) How does this quote from John, relate to what you offered those who attended the Legacy event?

Eldredge says “Boyhood Above all else, is a time of being the beloved son, the apple of your father’s eye. A time of affirmation. For though I maintain my premise laid out in Wild at Heart—that every man shares the same core Question, which is “Do I have what it takes?”— Before and beneath that Question in a man’s search for validation lies a deeper need—to know that he is prized, delighted in, that he is the beloved son.”

DAN CRENSHAW | Politics vs. Policy
45:26

Anytime you mention the word, “politics,” you know you’re in for a charged and polarizing conversation but it’s crucial we talk more about politics and the policy that comes with it because it impacts every facet of our lives.

 

My guest today, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, joins me to talk about the key issues impacting culture and society today including a healthy approach to reaching across the aisle, why it’s important for conservatives to have a voice in what we typically view as liberal issues, not only the far left but the far right – something he calls, “woke conservatism,” the importance of humility and open-mindedness, and distinguishing between politics and policy.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Prioritizing in politics
  • The downside of rank contrarianism
  • Pursuing rational environmentalism
  • Red flag laws and gun control
  • Men’s tendency to gravitate toward negative information

  • Negative consequences of playing around with politics
  • We don’t need another AOC
  • Victimhood is seen as an attribute in society

ED MYLETT | The Power of One More
01:06:31

All of us want to be happy and successful and, yet, for many of us it seems so far away or so hard, if not impossible, to obtain. But my guest today, the one and only Ed Mylett, makes the case in his newest book, The Power of One More, that what we ultimately desire is not all that far away at all but perhaps just one more decision, step, conversation, or action away.

Today, Ed and I talk about how to develop that mindset, why being “rich” does not necessarily equal having money, the difference between confidence and arrogance, why it’s crucial we identify our value systems, the power of equanimity, pursuing progress, and taking inventory of our lives.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Its easy for men to get discouraged
  • Arrogance vs healthy confidence
  • Don’t attach your identify to the external
  • Knowing the line between serving others and serving yourself
  • Can anger serve us?
  • Learning how to channel your emotions
  • An awareness of a challenge helps it lose its power over you
  • The ultimate confirmation does not come from a human being
  • Pursuing progress, not perfection
  • Reframe what it means to miss things with your kids
  • Sometimes you need to be “creatively present”

ERIC THOMAS | Ignite Your Power and Purpose
58:58

I think most of us believe there is a reason we’re here on this planet. But I personally know how hard it can be to uncover and discover the reason that is. It seems daunting considering how easily we can become consumed with trivial matters and the distractions of modern culture and society.

But my guest today, Eric Thomas (AKA, The Hip Hop Preacher), has been helping millions of people around the world ignite their power and purpose. Today, ET and I talk about overcoming the “passive boy,” becoming more of who you are – not a clone of someone else, why you don’t need the world to approve to succeed, the battle between the “two you’s,” and finding immense opportunity in crisis.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Criticism often reflects one’s own insecurity
  • Getting what we want isn’t necessarily getting what we need
  • Learning from others rather than being them
  • Know what self-actualization means to you
  • Having a relationship with God
  • You need both God and money
  • Taking personal responsibility for your life

JONATHAN ISAAC | Becoming Bold as Lions
01:00:47

Most of us would like to believe that in a moment we are called to make a stand on our principles, we would do it without hesitation. But can we say for certain we would act in accordance with what we believe when confronted with the risk of social alienation, ostracization from our friends and family, potential loss of a job, and the financial insecurity that comes with it?

 

That’s exactly what my guest, NBA star Jonathan Isaac, had to deal with when he decided to stand for the National Anthem when all of his teammates took a knee during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement and the George Floyd case. Today, we talk about his decision to do so, why people place labels on and attempt to dehumanize others, facing your fears by walking with Christ, the power of social media and group think, and becoming bold as lions.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Choosing to make a stand
  • Loving each other the way that God loves us
  • Highly emotional situations require restraint
  • Hypocrisy in the faith
  • Racism is cured by a change in someones heart
  • The message often gets lost in a protest
  • When God’s plan doesn’t align with our plan
  • Staying in your lane while being authentic to yourself

I’ve spent a ton of time over the past several weeks really contemplating my performance and how I’m showing up both personally and professionally for my family, friends, and those of you who tune into what we’re doing here with Order of Man.

FRANK SCHWARTZ | Dangerous, Dirty, and Difficult
01:01:42

One of the greatest challenges we face as men is finding a like-minded band of brothers we can rely on when needed and we can serve as they need us. In the ease of modernity, we’ve been led to believe we can and have to go at life alone. That just isn’t the case.

His name is Frank Schwartz and he goes by the nickname, “Dark Helmet.” Today, Frank and I talk about the power of fitness, fellowship, and faith in a man’s life, overcoming the feeling of dissatisfaction, becoming a high-impact man, our desperation for love and recognition (yes, even in men), and the positive benefits of engaging in dangerous, dirty, and difficult pursuits.

KIRK CAMERON | Becoming Men of Faith and Character
56:54

You know as well as I do all the cultural dangers ourselves, families, and communities are presented with.

Today, Kirk and I talk about what he dubs the “moral meat grinder,” why direction is more important that perfection, the power of divine intervention and guidance, the deconstruction of society, and how to become a man of faith and character.

We’ve all begun to see the writing on the wall as it pertains to the loss in American manufacturing and the damage to the American supply chain.

DR. WARREN FARRELL | The Dangers of Dad-Deprivation
01:17:34

I think whether you’re willing to acknowledge it or not, we are most definitely facing a crisis of our young men.

Today, we talk about the dangers of lacking structure and purpose, how the “dad-style” vs. the “mom-style” of parenting actually creates awareness and empathy, how dopamine secretion and other physiological responses assist boys and men in doing the right thing, and the dangers and destructive results of “dad-deprivation.”

ANDY FRISELLA | Get Better Until You Die
01:10:11

As men, we all look around and see the problems that exist in society. But very few of us are willing to objectively look at what’s going on in our culture relative to the lesson we should have learned from examples throughout history. Couple that with our inability and/or lack of desire to improve our own situations and circumstances and it makes a recipe for disaster.

My guest today is my close personal friend, Andy Frisella, and today we talk about his shift away from the MFCEO podcast to the RealAF podcast, why we need to be cognizant of the convenience vs. efficiency, learning to push the envelope, the obligation to evolve, and how you can adopt the “get better until you die,” mentality.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Building efficiencies in your life
  • Keep your struggles and challenges in context
  • Balancing quality of life with making more money
  • We are being indoctrinated to settle for less

TERRY CREWS | The Path to True Masculine Power
01:13:31

Terry Crews joins me on the podcast today to talk about some very powerful topics focused on developing masculine power. I believe that you’d all agree that Terry embodies what we typically think of when we think about masculinity.

But today we dive deep into his true sense of power, his struggles with past anger issues and pornography, how to not only be physically strong but build mental and emotional strength, avoiding being baited in uncontrollable situations, what it means to “misuse masculinity,” and overcoming shame, insecurity, and fear.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Forgiveness is needed for true reconciliation
  • You can either have success or revenge
  • True power is the ability to control your own emotions
  • Using motivation as revenge leaves scars
  • You have to challenge your own thinking
  • Hollywood doesn’t care if you lose your family
  • Loving your family vs. controlling them
  • Traits of masculinity
  • Toxic masculinity is really just abuse of power
  • Masculinity is about being a servant and providing
  • Intimacy is more satisfying than just sex
  • Being the “bigger man” vs. being a little bitch
  • Power is exercising restraint
  • An effective movement must start with reconciliation
  • We are more alike than different

You guys have heard me talk a lot about our role as protectors, providers, and presiders not only within the walls of our home but in our communities as well.

DAVE RUBIN | Thriving in Our Woke Dystopia
01:07:25

We live in the single greatest time in the history of the human species but that’s not to say we’re without our fair share of challenges and struggles. It seems to me that the path we’re on is leading us to a path of destruction and the pace of our demise seems to be rapidly increasing.

My guest, Dave Rubin, would agree and, although we don’t see eye to eye on everything we discuss today, I think it will serve as a reminder that we can – and should – learn to have these crucial conversations before it’s too late.

Today, we talk about the seeming futility of trying create positive change in the world, what “wokeism” is and how to root it out of our society, big tech and how it’s working in overdrive to subjugate us, capitalism vs. socialism, homosexuality and transgenderism, and, ultimately, how to thrive in our ever-increasing woke dystopia.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • We had largely “solved” racism before bad policy brought it back
  • The “woke” revolution is eating its own
  • Humor is a great release valve
  • The strength of liberalism is also it’s weakness
  • Having feminine characteristics doesn’t make someone a woman
  • We all live outside of our ideals and values at times
  • How do you reason with unreasonable people?
  • Go to school to learn things that matter

KEN COLEMAN | Move From Day Job to Dream Job
01:09:53

If you’re anything like me, you know that deep down inside you’re meant to do something great in this life. It’s unfortunate, however, that so many men settle especially when it comes to a career they’re likely going to spend the overwhelming majority of their waking hours in.

 

That’s why I wanted to invite back Ken Coleman, author of From Paycheck to Purpose. Today, Ken and I talk about the concept of “stealing time from yourself” to launch a purpose project, tactical discipline during the pursuit, the 3 types of fear that keep men from going after meaningful work, and how to take yourself from day job to dream job.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Culture has made it seem silly for us to pursue our passion
  • Pursue your talent, passion and mission
  • You have to steal time from yourself
  • Don’t sacrifice the “now” for the “next”
  • Instead of hearing no, hear not here, not yet…
  • Experiencing fear and doubt is a good sign
  • You’ve got to filter failure

TIM TEBOW | Create a Life That Counts
01:07:15

My guest today is the one and only, Tim Tebow. I had the opportunity to sit down with him in New York last week and, without a doubt, he’s one of the most genuine human beings that I’ve ever met. You could feel that from him from the moment he walked into our studio (which happened to be a hotel room in Manhattan). I’ve always wondered if the men we see online are the same men in person and I can unequivocally say, “yes,” with Tebow.

Today, we talk about where Tebow’s convictions come from, the powerful relationship he has with his father and his coaches along the way, why his work with those who have special needs is so crucial in the absence of manliness, the dichotomy between God’s sovereignty and our own, creating an edge in your life, stacking up the small wins, and, at the foundation of it all, how to create a life that counts.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Masculinity is lacking around the world
  • Love is a choice that we make
  • Kids see everything that parents do
  • Managing the expectations of others
  • Some people just don’t want to like you
  • Being respected is more important than being liked
  • The relationship between serving God and living your own life
  • Sharing the Gospel through our actions
  • God provides when we need it most
  • We should both rely on God and work hard

PHIL ROBERTSON | How to Become Uncanceled
01:10:55

It’s easy to be on edge these days. With so much nonsense going on in the world from political protests, government overreach, cancel culture, everyone being offended by everything, and a myriad of other issues that aren’t really all that important in the grand scheme of things, it’s hard to find a sense of peace that I think most of us would really like to have in our lives.

Today, I’m joined by a man that has seemed to not only find it but is so uniquely comfortable and sure of who he is that you can’t help but be intrigued and fascinated about how he’s done it. His name is Phil Robertson (you may know him from Duck Dynasty). Today, we talk about the power of love, justice and mercy, the power of hope, finding confidence in who you are, discovering the true nature of people, and so much more (he even does some bird calling for me with his signature calls). And, we also get into why Phil was canceled and how he’s taking it all in stride.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Finding answers in the Bible
  • Difference between child of God and child of the devil
  • Loving your enemies

  • Why is the Gospel so threatening
  • Standing by your convictions

Today, Tanner and I talk about utilizing clothing as an extension of you, the Aesthetic Overton Window and how it impacts what we wear, why you need to avoid being one-dimensional in the way you present yourself, why dressing well isn’t at all about suits and skinny jeans, and, ultimately, how you can garner influence by improving your presence.

BRANDON TATUM | Two Sides to Every Story
01:21:36

Most of us, when formulating an opinion or perspective about a cultural issue tend to look at one side of the story – myself included. But if we have any chance of making societal and cultural changes that actually improve our way of life, it’s crucial that we look at what we see from all sides.

 

That’s what my guest today, Brandon Tatum, and I talk about – seeing problems from all angles and waiting for all the information before formulating opinions. We cover the Kyle Rittenhouse and Ahmaud Arbery cases, the dangers of the “Defund the Police” movement and what, if any reform in policing is needed, whether or not systemic racism actually exists, our emotions and our responses to them, use of force laws, and so much more.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Online vs. offline conversations
  • Context is often lacking, or overlooked, in online posts
  • There are ALWAYS two sides to every story
  • Young men must learn to harness their masculinity
  • People have had to die so that we can have conversations about equality
  • You WANT to face adversity, so that you can become better
  • You choose how you view any situation
  • Double standards in race and politics
  • Pressures of being a black police officer
  • We’re in a police depression
  • Room for improvement in law enforcement
  • If something sounds crazy…do more research
  • Never make a decision after hearing only one side of an argument

GREG ELLIS | Fatherhood in the Crosshairs, Part 2
01:21:28

It’s no surprise that the family court system is stacked against men. Millions of men are, quite literally, fighting for their rights and the rights of their children. But I don’t think most men, unless you’ve fallen prey to the courts, know just how deep and deceitful it is.

 

Today, I am once again joined by Greg Ellis, the author of The Respondent: Exposing the Cartel of Family Law. He shares with me his story of how, after 20 years of marriage, he found himself incarcerated based on false accusations from his ex-wife, how he has been fighting for his children, the deep corruption inside Family Law, how fatherhood is in the crosshairs of culture, and what he’s been doing to expose the truth.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The joy is in the journey, not the destination
  • Corruption in the family court system
  • Both men and women can be good and evil
  • The solution is being truthful
  • Are you adding to the noise by listening to it?
  • Judiciary involved in child trafficking
  • Greatest threat to western civilization is the breakdown of the family
  • The burden of living grief
  • Moral hypocrisy

DOUG MARCAIDA | Tempering Violence Through Skill and Familiarity
01:05:15

Extreme violence is something not all of us are likely to face, and that’s a good thing. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen at the drop of a hat. And, in that moment, it is significantly better to be prepared and aware of what could happen than to be ignorant to it completely.

And, that is where my guest today, Doug Marcaida, comes in. He is a martial artist, edge-weapons specialist, and knife designer. And, he is one of the judges on the extremely popular History Channel show, Forged in Fire.

Today we talk about creating a home as a safe environment for your family, the culture of violence, martial arts and their efficacy, curbing the beast inside of us all, the concept of “verbal judo,” and ultimately how to temper violence though skill and familiarity.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Making home the safe place for your kids
  • You don’t have to be like your parents
  • Finding comfort in the practice of martial arts
  • The predators are always armed

And, today, I am joined by the host of the Modern Wisdom Podcast, Chris Williamson, to discuss things like the power of curiosity, how to graduate from your current friends, how mental masturbation is holding you back, why you need to find ways to break up the monotony of your life, and so much more.

MIKE GLOVER | American Contingency
01:25:35

There is no question that America is in turmoil right now. Between nationwide shortages of supplies, the unpopularity of our current President, the reaction and subsequent fallout of COVID, and the extreme polarity among so many of us, it’s clear that we’re likely to face some challenging times ahead. The questions that remain are, “Are you ready?” and, “Will you be able to protect, provide, and preside over you and yours?”

That’s exactly why I’ve been looking forward to the conversation with my guest, Mike Glover with Fieldcraft Survival and American Contingency. Today, we talk about building the next generation of warriors, the importance of service to community, the degradation and destruction of the family unit, “endless wars,” the turmoil in Afghanistan (which most of us have already forgotten), and how to be a man in and for your community.

BEN SHAPIRO | The Authoritarian Moment
01:00:50

My guest today needs no introduction. His name is Ben Shapiro and he is likely one of the most polarizing guests that I’ve had on since we started podcasting 6 years ago. But regardless of what you may think about him and his stances on the world’s most pressing concerns, these are exactly the types of challenging conversations we should be having.

Today, we cover a lot of ground including Ben’s new book, The Authoritarian Moment: How the Left Weaponized America’s Institutions Against Dissent.

JASON WILSON | Embracing the Lion and the Lamb
01:20:47

The world (and our social media accounts) are flooded with a false sense of bravado, machismo, and the “alpha” mentality from men who, when you peel back the layers, are dealing with some very difficult and challenging experiences and struggles.

Unfortunately, many of them have never learned to deal with these experiences head on and end up doing a lot of mental and emotional damage to themselves and others along the way.

My guest today, is Jason Wilson, the author of Battle Cry: Waging and Winning the War Within. Today, Jason and I discuss why men have a hard time addressing and dealing with these wounds, the difference between being worried and being concerned, his own experiences with unhealed trauma, what it means to be a comprehensive man, a four-part framework for mastering your emotions, and how you can and should embrace in your inner lion and lamb.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • The world needs the lion and the lamb
  • No such thing as negative emotions
  • Mastering your emotions

  • Worrying is different than concern
  • The importance of staying in the moment

DAN CRENSHAW | Ignorance and Outrage are the Enemy
57:37

Needless to say, there has been a tremendous amount of turmoil and division in America over the past several years. This isn’t new in the history of the United States but it seems to me that we, as citizens, are more divided than we’ve ever been on a myriad of issues from foreign policy, to COVID restrictions and mandates, to gun legislation and healthcare, and everywhere in between.


And, my guest today has a lot to say about these issues and more. And, not ironically, I’m sure people will be very divided on this conversation as well. His name is Representative Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL and Representative for the state of Texas. Today, we discuss the new COVID measures announced by President Biden last week, foreign affairs and the threat of terrorism (including everything happening in Afghanistan right now), why our emotional responses to these issues are getting us into trouble and putting us in danger, and why we all need to be more informed rather than ignorant on the most pressing issues of today.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Discussing the government response to COVID
  • Balancing being empathetic with being rational
  • Why get into politics and how does it change people
  • Thoughts on leaving Afghanistan - what is an acceptable cost?
  • Most people have not known war for 20 years, they have known peace
  • Biden got lucky that the Taliban took over so quickly
  • The proper way to look at healthcare
  • We need more confidence in our arguments

ZUBY | Common Sense in Uncommon Times
01:23:57

Increasingly, it seems to be that we’re losing much of the common sense that we, collectively, once possessed. Common sense has been replaced with quick sounds bites, “clapbacks” on social media, and manufactured outraged designed to drive clicks and capture eyeballs and attention.

 

But my guest today is using his voice, social media, and any other platform available to share his common sense, rational approach to some of the world’s most pressing concerns. His name is Zuby and I know many of you are already very familiar with his work. Today, we talk about the dangers of tribalism, the motives and intentions of our government overlords and elites, how to have real conversations that actually drive change, why empathy is crucial in dialogue, and how to recapture common sense in uncommon times.

GREG ELLIS | Fatherhood in the Crosshairs, Part I
01:25:40

Frankly, gents, I don’t even know what to say about this conversation. It was a powerful discussion from a man who has been through hell and back to fight for not only who he is as a man but as a father of his children.

His name is Greg Ellis and, although you may not recognize his name, you have definitely seen him on the Silver Screen.

SAL DI STEFANO | How Resistance Training Improves Strength and Makes You a Better Man
01:13:26

Every one of us intuitively knows that getting stronger is the right thing to do. It quite literally improves every facet of our lives from the influence we can develop with others, to the energy needed to build a business, and the stamina and mental fortitude needed to raise and lead a family.

My guest, Sal Di Stefano, and I talk about that today. He is an expert in strength training and the author of The Resistance Training Revolution. We discuss the chronic health issues of today’s modern man, cardio vs. strength training, developing testosterone naturally, the traits of admirable men, and how to burn fat and get stronger.

MADISON CAWTHORN | Men, America, and Politics
01:13:56

I had the opportunity to visit with Representative Madison Cawthorn with my family in DC last week and, let me tell you, it did not disappoint. We got a chance to tour the Capitol Building and get a small glimpse inside the world of politics and DC. But we also had the chance to sit down in his office and throw down the podcast you’re about to listen to.

 

We talk about the world of politics, why, while politics is fast-paced, very little seems to get accomplished on the Hill, how we as men can be informed without immersing ourselves in the political arena and theater that comes with it, the world of outrage, and, at the end of the day, what we as men need to do to keep this country on track.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Most politicians come to DC with noble intentions
  • Its important (and fun) to play the political game
  • Term limits on congress
  • Values-based rather than issue-based representation
  • How to avoid corruption while being surrounded by it
  • Don’t be defined by your challenges
  • Working with people you don’t like
  • The balance between speaking in a bold way and avoiding extremism
  • Using a lack of a filter as strategy
  • The benefits of surrounding yourself with people who will call you out
  • Disappointment is the most challenging thing about being in DC
  • What is the political leadership doing right?
  • Time for the silent majority to wake up
  • A term limit bill that actually has a chance
  • Eliminating federal income tax

MICHAEL EASTER | Seek and Embrace Discomfort
01:06:30

Our innate pursuit of comfort is the enemy of achievement and, yet, we’ve failed collectively to keep our biological hardwiring to seek the path of least resistance in check. Why is that? Why is it that we know we should seek discomfort yet find it so difficult to do?

 

That’s the topic of my conversation today with Michael Easter, the author of The Comfort Crisis. Today, Michael and I discuss the damage of helicopter and “snow plow” parenting, the psychological programming that keeps us from achievement, the concept of Mysogi and embracing annual challenges, how a healthy relationship with death keeps people fulfilled, and ultimately what you can do to overcome the Comfort Crisis that permeates every fabric of society.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Life really isn’t that hard
  • Parents seeking guidance from, rather thank giving guidance to, their kids
  • Snow plow parenting
  • Measuring happiness
  • The value in considering your own death
  • Challenges are required for true happiness
  • Finding the balance between seeking comfort and challenging ourselves
  • Why do we need to exercise
  • How do we push ourselves mentally and emotionally
  • The benefits and drawbacks of routine
  • Finding value in boredom
  • Put your ego aside: try to suck at something
