Episode Date
You Keep What You Defend, Boundaries for Work-Life Balance, and Getting Out of Your Box | ASK ME ANYTHING
53:10

In this week’s ASK ME ANYTHING, Ryan Michler and Kipp Sorensen take on your questions from the Iron Council, the exclusive brotherhood of the Order of Man movement.  Hit Ryan up on Instagram at @ryanmichler and share what’s working in your life. 

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?

(36:00) What, if any, resources do you suggest for talking to son about sex?

(41:00) Have you considered expanding the Order of Man into any other areas? E.g. OoM shooting ranges, OoM BJJ Academies, OoM Hunting Classes, or anything else along those lines.

(44:50) How do I balance being a present father, fiancé and working, while also trying to take care of myself in order to take better care of my family?

(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
  • Lack of critical thinking and humility in America
  • 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

(32:20) My friend has been thinking about starting a business idea for a few years. This business is like a second side to the business that I run right now.

Or would I be stepping on his toes and negatively affecting our friendship by doing this?

(58:50) How do you talk about Toxic Masculinity when other people believe it’s a real thing?

(1:08:30) How do you deal with a mother-in-law who is very opinionated about everything in your wife’s life? Do you set boundaries or do you let your wife set the boundaries?

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

 

Membership in the Iron Council will be opening soon.  Join the waitlist here.

JP DINNELL | Pray and Work with Intent
44:35

Last week, at Origin Immersion Camp, I had the opportunity to sit down with my good friend, former Navy SEAL, and director of experiential leadership training programs for Echelon Front, JP Dinnell. We didn’t have a lot of time but we got into some subjects that him and I have never discussed before and I know you’re going to get a ton of value from

We talk about the relationship between trust and influence, allowing the people you lead to come up with solutions to their own problems, why you need to avoid creating dependency from others and how to do that, the concept of working, “up and out,” teaching how to think vs. what to think, and how to pray and work with intent.

JOHN KIM | Solid Self vs. Pseudo Self
01:09:44

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.

Today, we talk about the differences between liking and loving yourself and which is better to strive for, why we have to be careful of stamping ourselves as failures, how to uncover false beliefs burned in our subconscious, the power of identifying our value systems, and how to move away from the “pseudo self” to the “solid self.”

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.

My guest today is the President of F3 Nation, whom a lot of you are familiar with. 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.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Helping men find their mission
  • Providing structure to men through fitness
  • Strengthening the relationship with yourself, others, and your creator

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. And, as much as we’d like to pin it on some politician or outside factor beyond our control, the bigger issue is that the greatest threat is ourselves and our unwillingness to face the challenges that we see.

My guest today is Kirk Cameron. He is an actor and is most well-known for his character, Mike Seaver on the 80’s hit sitcom, Growing Pains. 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.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Being an anomaly in Hollywood
  • Finding God and taking a different path
  • We have good reason to have great faith in God
  • Selecting the right projects
  • Moving from defense to offense in culture
  • One person partnered with God can change history

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.”

  • Having the skillsets to be able to confront and to be compassionate
  • Discussing the best way to measure success

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

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.

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

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
  • Understanding three major sources of fear
  • There is no success without suck

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
  • Finding meaning in peace
  • Finding Jesus is the smartest move I’ve ever made
  • Hate WHAT is evil, not WHO is evil
  • How to not alienate non-believers
  • Why is the Gospel so threatening
  • Standing by your convictions

ADAM CAROLLA | Truth Yeller
53:11

The truth is something a lot of people aren’t interested in hearing these days. Increasingly, we’ve let how we feel about current events become the primary factor for our responses to them. But there are a handful of vocal individuals fighting back and sharing the truth in spite of how it may hurt some people’s feelings and threaten their dangerous ideologies.

 

My guest is one of those individuals. His name is Adam Carolla and I know a lot of you are already familiar with the great work he’s doing in comedy and podcasting. Today, Adam and I talk about the attack on comedy, what he refers to as “chick think,” why not all opinions carry the same weight, and how to get over what other people think of us.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Consequences of reckless forward “progress”
  • “Chick think” vs. “dude think”

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.

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.

CHRIS WILLIAMSON | Ageless Wisdom for Modern Times
01:17:33

There is so much wisdom to be found all around us and, yet, so many of us are so consumed with the minutiae of life that we never take any amount of time to pause, reflect, and consider the ageless wisdom that could drastically alter the course of our lives.

 

But it’s the ability to stop, ponder, and critically think about the situations we find ourselves in that will get you on the path you have a desire to walk. 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.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Overcoming the “adult infant”
  • Recognizing worth outside of your accomplishments
  • The problem with insecurity and fear as a motivator
  • Having faith and confidence in your future self
  • The importance of how we frame a situation in our minds
  • Goals and process are both important to success
  • Motivation is not a bad thing
  • Developing “confident competence”
  • Starting small
  • Consistency is key
  • Don’t over-complicate things
  • Vindicating past suffering by helping others
  • Building a complimentary team
  • Never multiply anything by “0”
  • The downside is rarely a bad as it seems
  • Opportunity cost vs. anxiety cost

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.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • What is being done in Afghanistan
  • The degradation of Christian values
  • The origins of Fieldcraft Survival
  • Behind the curtains of the CIA
  • Central government versus the people
  • It is our role to assist the world
  • Extreme incompetence or extreme intentionality
  • Shipping troubles and Chinese involvement
  • Developing a community of assets
  • Become the solution to your own problem

01:15:51

Work/life balance is a term that gets thrown around all the time. And, although I believe it’s a bit of a misnomer, there is no question that finding the proper allocation of time, attention, and resources towards professional and personal pursuits is on plenty of men’s minds.

Jesse is someone who, in spite of his tremendous professional success, has managed to become an incredibly committed and devoted husband and father.

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. We also discuss the shifting Overton Window in politics, using logic over feelings to create solutions, why many people are “too nice” and losing the cultural battle, and where one needs to draw the line on government overreach.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Most Americans don’t feel comfortable saying what they want to say
  • Most corporations want to avoid controversy
  • People in the middle tend to cave to the louder side
  • The left has overshot their mark
  • Social media rewards the most radical
  • The problem with broadly defining problems
  • We have to play by the rules we have agreed upon
  • The Federal government has grown beyond its intended size
  • Potential inciting incidents that could lead to permanent fragmentation

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.

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.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • You can only do so much thinking by yourself
  • There are three ways to solve any conflict
  • Effective communication is a super power
  • We’re all susceptible to group think
  • What it means to live in a free society
  • Fear and anxiety shuts down rational thinking
  • The importance of understanding the perspectives of other people
  • Focus the conversation on where we agree, rather than disagree
  • Don’t fall for media propaganda
  • The bias is often hidden in what people “don’t” say
  • Being wrong is different than lying
  • Everybody is a moral monster to someone else

Gentlemen, I cannot tell you how stoked I am to have my guest on today, Mr. Michael Chandler. If you’re not already familiar with who he is, Chandler is a three-time Bellator MMA Champion who only recently made his debut in the UFC after long-time speculation of him making the switch to UFC.

We also cover overcoming a very public loss, why every man ought to bet on himself, three traps to avoid when on the losing side of the equation, Chandler’s upcoming fight in November, and the conflicting aspirations of being a family man and fighter.

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. Today we talk about the true purpose of vulnerability, why social media should be called “anti-social media,” the crisis of meaning that modern society is facing, and why fatherhood is in the crosshairs.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Using social media as a tool
  • Appreciating art, literature, and sports
  • We are not entitled to success
  • Drawing inspiration from challenge
  • Society devaluing the “male”
  • The importance of an earned merit system
  • Competition versus cooperation
  • The most influential person gets to establish and enforce the rules
  • Don’t count your victory while the game is still being played

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.

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

SURESH MADHAVEN | The Role of Men in a Fatherless Society
01:21:09

If you turn on the news or any social media apps, you’re likely to be met with a myriad of fantastic headlines, the latest political scandal, racial tensions, violence, or any number of issues these outlets use to get our attention. Of course, most of this is exaggerated to get us worked up without providing any real solutions to some of the issues that actually exist.

My guest today, Suresh Madhaven, and I begin to break down some of these issues and work towards unpacking and discussing solutions rather than focus on the outrage that is used against us. We talk about the importance of men’s rites of passages, breaking down the concept of systemic racism, crying wolf on the real issues, movements against masculinity, and the role of men in a fatherless society.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A boy’s coming-of-age
  • Defining systemic racism
  • The term “white privilege”
  • The real victims of racism
  • The greatest lie being told
  • The lack of police training
  • Steps to avoid the police
  • Framework to live your life

JAMES ALTUCHER | How to Skip the Line and Get Ahead Faster
01:14:30

We’ve all heard people say, “You’ve got to pay your dues” or the concept of the 10,000-hour rule. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if you could skip the line, so to speak, and accelerate the results of your life while everyone else stands in line simply waiting for their turn.

That’s what my guest today, the one and only James Altucher, and I discuss – how to use the concept of 10,000 experiments, not 10,000 hours. We talk about why “stay in your lane” is bad advice, how to become the top 1% in your field much more efficiently, how to become an idea-generating machine, harnessing the power of “idea sex,” and how to creatively add value to others so you can win faster.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The importance of good storytelling
  • Why you should NOT stay in your lane
  • Caring what the right people think
  • The Concept of 10,000 hours
  • The upside of experimenting 
  • Dividing your skills into micro-skills
  • How to generate new ideas

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY | Greenlights
01:04:42

Most of you are probably aware of Matthew McConaughey and his new book, Greenlights. I’ll admit, I was a bit hesitant to read the book myself (I explain why to Matthew in this podcast), but after hearing from enough people that I had to read it, I decided to pick up a copy and, let me tell you, it did not disappoint.

So, when I had the opportunity to have Matthew join me on the podcast, I jumped at the chance. We talk about many important topics in this conversation and really hit on fatherhood as we’re approaching Father’s Day. We also discuss the power of being the underdog, reinventing yourself, the value of sacrifice, taking our fathers off pedestals they don’t belong, and the concept and benefit of greenlights.

  • Having the choice to be a victim
  • Putting your father on a pedestal
  • Rituals and initiations with your child

KYLE CARPENTER | Live Worthy of Our Fallen
01:57:16

Men, I wanted to do something special today as next Monday is Memorial day and, after serving time in the military myself, I know how crucial it is that we remember our fallen warriors and honor the ultimate sacrifice they made to protect and preserve our way of life.



So, I invited my friend and the youngest living Medal of Honor Recipient, Kyle Carpenter, back on the podcast to talk about his military service, transitioning from the military, and ultimately living a life worthy of the sacrifices of so many. If you don’t know Kyle’s story, he was as close to death as one person could be after jumping on a live grenade in Afghanistan to save his fellow Marines.

All I ask is that you have a listen and stop sometime this week to think about how you are living your life and the millions of men and women who have died so that you can.

TRENT PRESZLER | Little and Often Soon Becomes Great
01:20:24

As many of you know, in January of this year, my oldest son and I started building a canoe. As we embarked upon this project, many of you introduced me on Instagram to a professional boat builder named @trentpreszler.

Fortunately, Trent and I built a relationship as he shared with me some of his own successes and failures. And, when I found out he had a new book coming out called, Little and Often, I knew that I needed to have him on the podcast.

Today, Trent and I talk about why he decided to build a canoe with the tools his dad left him, what the canoe symbolizes and how important it has been throughout the history of the world, why we place our fathers on pedestals they don’t belong, becoming your own man, why our scars are important, and how little and often soon becomes great.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Taking pride in building a boat
  • Being part of a long history
  • A symbol of self-reliance
  • Feeling a sense of value
  • Leading to extraordinary 
  • On the road to freedom
  • Finding purpose in your life
  • Getting back to the adventure
  • Knowing where you came from
  • The pedestal of fatherhood
  • Having empathy toward your father
  • Plowing through uncertainty 
  • Feeling a sense of belonging
  • Adding up to a man
  • Forging your own identity 
  • Becoming more than a side hustle

TRENT PRESZLER

My guest today is a man I was introduced to by many of you when I began our canoe-building project in January of this year.

His name is @trentpreszler and he is a professional boat builder. Many of you have probably seen his works of art (I call them that because they’re absolutely beautiful) which are actually tools that men have been utilizing for thousands of years to improve their station in life.

Trent is the CEO of Bedell Cellars, a winery in Long Island, New York but in 2014 he began a new path as he built his first canoe with his rancher father’s tools. Since then, Trent has been building beautiful luxury canoes which, admittedly, is not a path he thought he would find himself on.

Trent has become a friend of mine and someone who is extremely insightful. And, as strange as it may sound, I believe we were destined in a way to connect.

BATTLE PLANNING APP

Many of you are familiar with our Battle Planner which I developed nearly 5 years ago and have been refining since then. But what you may not be familiar with is the new Battle Planning App that we just released that has turned in our written planner into something that you can carry with you wherever you go in the palm of your hand.

The Battle Planning App will walk you through everything you need to do to make more of the next 12 weeks than most people do all year and, with a daily non-negotiable and daily task section, it will become your one-stop planning, organizing, and strategizing tool.

If you’re interested, you can check out the free version of the app at www.12weekbattleplanner.com and see how it will improve every facet of your life.

JACK CARR | The Devil’s Hand
01:04:50

One of my favorite podcast guests and friends is back on the podcast today. His name is Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL and the author of the James Reece series with his latest book just released called The Devil’s Hand.

Today, Jack and I talk about the differences between a calling and a career, dealing with discouragement from others, the conditioning that takes place in society and how to overcome it, Joseph Campbell’s, The Hero’s Journey, and how to utilize it in your own life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Prioritizing opportunity
  • Creating powerful relationships
  • Career versus profession
  • Preparing to be an author
  • Making things possible
  • Working with Chris Pratt
  • Your next calling in life
  • Getting into character 
  • The power of social media
  • Getting the job done
  • Dealing with internet trolls

JACK CARR

As I mentioned previously, my guest today is the one and only Jack Carr. I met Jack years ago when we had a podcast during the release of his first book after retiring as a Navy SEAL.

I could tell you a bunch about his books and how successful he is but what you may not know is he’s one of the most genuine men you’ll meet. He invited me into his home, introduced me to his beautiful family, and broke bread with me like we were old friends.

And, since then, we have become friends and it’s been incredible to see him become so successful as an author with one of his books being filmed right now with Chris Pratt playing the role of James Reece (which we talk a bit about in this podcast).

PREPARING FOR DESTRUCTION

It’s no surprise to you that the last 12 months or so have been…eventful, to say the least. That’s why with as many variables that we, as men, are likely to face, it’s crucial that we be prepared for whatever may come.

After all, David Gilmore said, “The real man gains renown by standing between his family and destruction absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity.”

And, that’s exactly what we’re talking about in the Iron Council this month. We’re learning, discussing, and challenging each other to become more prepared for emergencies, natural disasters, violent encounters, and anything else we may potentially run against.

If you want to learn more about being prepared and banding with men who will teach you and hold you accountable for doing so, join us in our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council by going to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

JACK DONOVAN | Men and Gods
01:17:11

My guest today is the one and only Jack Donovan. I’ve been honored to get to know him over the past several years and much of what he has shared regarding men and masculinity has shaped my own personal perspective of how we are to show up as fathers, husbands, and leaders in our business and community.

Today, we talk about his latest book, Fire in the Dark. We also do a deep dive into the roles of masculinity, individual responsibility, the heroic ideal, and why we as men look to the Gods and what we can learn from them.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Writing about men’s issues
  • Adding value to others
  • Different voices for different ears
  • What defines masculinity 
  • The eternal truths
  • Biological constructs
  • Rational division of labor
  • Gender theory studies 
  • The slippery-slope fallacy 
  • Taking over a culture
  • Learning to be technical
  • Identifying weakness
  • Settling for mediocrity
  • Self-imposed shackles 
  • The collapse of Moral consensus 
  • Forming a responsible opinion

JACK DONOVAN

As I said earlier, my guest today is none other than Jack Donovan. Fortunately, I’ve gotten to know Jack over the past several years and we’ve spent a lot of time talking about masculinity and what it means to be a man.

I was introduced to his work years ago when I read, The Way of Men, and since then, I’ve been fascinated with his interesting and unique perspectives, and his willingness to share what have only increasingly become polarizing thoughts and ideas.

Jack is an extremely fascinated man and has caused me to take a hard look at what I perceive as the responsibilities of men, what it means to be a man, and how we can and should show up in the world.

You guys are really going to enjoy this one.

PREPARING FOR A DISASTER

I think most of us pride ourselves on being prepared to deal with what life has to offer us. After all, it was Douglas Wilson who said, “The real man gains renown by standing between his family and destruction, absorbing the blows of fate with equanimity.”

But the question remains, “Are you really prepared for what may come your way?”

That’s the question we’re working to answer this month in our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council. We’ll be discussing and challenging each other to focus on the priorities of preparedness, shoring up our weaknesses, and holding each other accountable to put ourselves and our families in a better position should disaster strike.

And, on top of all that, you’ll get the accountability, guidance, and direction when you band with us inside the Iron Council.

To get prepared for whatever life may throw at you and to unlock access to the accountability needed to thrive, learn more and join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

RENER GRACIE | Comfort in Chaos
01:18:58

As many of you know, several years ago, I immersed myself in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and, frankly, it’s been one of the best things I’ve done for myself in my entire life. And, today, I am joined by a man who has done a tremendous job in getting the art to the masses by codifying a system of learning Jiu-Jitsu that has trained and developed tens of thousands of martial artists.

His name is @renergracie, a 4th-degree black belt, the grandson of Helio Gracie, and the founder and chief instructor of Gracie University. We talk about the system he and his brother created, the differences between sport BJJ and combat BJJ, building legacies, training our police force to handle themselves, and how to develop a level of comfort in chaos.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The starting point of Jiu-Jitsu
  • Becoming the exception 
  • Knowing when to strike
  • Doing things the right way
  • The only fight that matters
  • A product of savagery 
  • Cracking the code
  • The art of violence
  • The Police Disappointment Gap
  • Spreading the word
  • The Bully-Proof program
  • Enforcing boundaries
  • Expressing dissatisfaction 
  • Understanding the consequences

RENER GRACIE

My guest today is Rener Gracie. He is the grandson of the man who brought Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to America, Helio Gracie. He is a 4th-degree black belt and is the founder and lead instructor of Gracie University where he has instructed thousands of men, women, and children in the art of BJJ.

He’s also extremely innovative and forward-thinking and has created programs specifically designed for law enforcement, women, and children (through their Gracie Bullyproof program).

In addition, he trains many top-level fighters including UFC’s Brian Ortega. Needless to say, the man knows what he’s doing and he comes from a long line of very capable and proficient tacticians. 

ACCOUNTABILITY

Most of the men who join our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, do so to gain some level of accountability. In fact, that is one of the main reasons I started the organization.

But with as many men who are looking for some level of accountability from the programs, masterminds, and brotherhoods, they participate in, few offer as much accountability as we have built into the Iron Council.

When you band with us, not only will you get access to the 820+ men who belong to the Iron Council but you’ll also have the opportunity to join a Battle Team of 15 men who will hold your feet to the fire.

And, with the addition of our new Battle Planning App (included in membership), you’ll have the metrics and data needed to achieve at every aspect of your life.

If you’re looking for added accountability in your life and you want the tools and systems needed to thrive, join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

ETHAN SUPLEE | American Glutton
01:12:16

My guest today is Ethan Suplee. You may know him from his acting roles on Remember the Titans, American History X, and Without a Paddle. But if you saw him today, you likely wouldn’t recognize him. That’s because he’s transformed not only his physical appearance but every element of his life.

Today, we talk about his journey to lose over 250 pounds, what it’s like to be severely obese in Hollywood and how many people had a vested interest in him being unhealthy, why who you listen to is so crucial on your self-development journey, adding meaning to challenging self-work, and overcoming a sense of complete powerlessness.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Choosing your perspective
  • Being seen as the “fat guy”
  • Avoiding the attention
  • Living an active lifestyle
  • Admitting powerlessness
  • Going to the extreme
  • Confronting your bad habits
  • Finding moderation 
  • Crawling out of a hole
  • Living with intention 
  • Experimenting with new things

ETHAN SUPLEE

My guest today is none other than Hollywood Actor, husband, father, and host of the American Glutton Podcast, Ethan Suplee.

Many of you have seen Ethan in Remember the Titans, Butterfly Effect, American History X, Without a Paddle, and so many more movies but, more recently, he’s gained a lot of visibility and attention by embarking on his own health journey by losing over 250 pounds and, frankly, getting jacked.

I really enjoyed this podcast because Ethan is such a humble person and he’s taken his years and years of struggle and not only used it as fuel for his own life but fuel for helping others transform themselves primarily through his podcast, American Glutton.

THE POWER OF BROTHERHOOD

Obviously, we’re talking today about making radical changes in our lives and, personally, what I’ve found to be one of the greatest tools in doing that is having strong, capable, successful men in your corner.

And, that’s exactly what you’re going to get when you band with us in the Iron Council. You’re going to immediately connect with over 800 men who want to win, want you to win, and are actually doing something about it.

I’ll admit that when you join us, it’s a bit like drinking from a firehose but we’ve got everything you need to help you improve your health, rekindle relationships, build a business, grow your wealth, and anything/everything else you may want to accomplish.

Join us in the Iron Council. Band with like-minded men. Get on the path.

MADISON CAWTHORN | Uncompromising Values and Service
01:02:47

Today I am joined by an incredible man who just so happens to be the youngest U.S Congressman. His name is Madison Cawthorn and he’s gained a ton of attention over the past several months for, first, his powerful speech at the Republican National Convention and, more recently, his floor speech on 2nd Amendment Rights.

Today, Congressman Cawthorn and I talk about how he views his disability (he is partially paralyzed from a crash he was in years ago) and his masculinity, what he feels is our civic duty to get involved in politics and important topics, the power of words and using them effectively to create change and hope, the danger of the fatherless home crisis we’re in, uncompromising values, and so much more…

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Determining what’s worthy of attention 
  • Getting involved in office
  • Connecting issues to daily life
  • Overcoming discouragement 
  • Pushing for term limits
  • Speaking to the American ethos
  • What it means to be a man
  • Supporting good policy
  • The belief in yourself 
  • Feeling completely useless 
  • Taking care of your family 
  • Having a network of guys
  • Dropping out of college
  • Proving your competence 
  • Getting rid of the nuclear family  
  • Equity Vs. Equality

MADISON CAWTHORN

Gentlemen, my guest today is a man that likely needs no introduction for many of you. At 25, he is currently the youngest U.S. Congressman but, as we talk about in this conversation, he does not let that keep him from throwing himself into some of the most important (and polarizing) discussions in politics today.

What’s even more impressive is that in 2014, his life plans came to a halt as he found himself a survivor of a car accident that left him partially paralyzed. After scrapping his plans to attend the Naval Academy, he found his way into politics as a way to serve in spite of not being able to join the military.

Gentlemen, this was a very powerful conversation with a man who had a lot of reason to quit in life but has, instead, decided to make the most of his circumstances and become a force to be reckoned with.

IRON COUNCIL

By now, you’ve heard all about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council. One thing that you may not know is that each and every month, we focus on a topic to better equip ourselves as men with the tools and resources we need to succeed and thrive.

And, for the month of April, we’re going to be talking all about being prepared. In the wake of Texas’ power outages, the COVID fallout, and any number of additional events we’re bound to face, it’s crucial that we, as men, get ourselves prepared for what life may throw our way.

If this is something that has been on your mind, join us inside the Iron Council as we all work to better equip and inoculate ourselves against tragic, difficult, and unfortunate life events.

You’ll also gain access to all of the resources available and the brotherhood of men who will help you get the most out of your life.

GRANGER SMITH | Leading and Living Well in the Face of Extreme Adversity
59:02

Gentlemen, there is so much negativity, hostility, and vitriol in the world today. It’s unfortunate because even in the most difficult of circumstances there is so much to be positive about and grateful for. And, as we look for and embrace those factors, life becomes so much more rewarding and fulfilling.

Today, I am joined by country music artist, Granger Smith (we also talk about his alter-ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr.) to talk gratitude, juggling all of our duties and responsibilities, and attaching the right (and empowering) meaning to events. We also talk about the tragic loss of Granger’s son and how he continues to lead his family through one of the most difficult situations imaginable – losing a child.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Granger’s new upcoming video
  • Benefiting from hard work
  • Overcoming negativity 
  • Developing a successful career
  • Managing at a larger level
  • Getting asked the right question
  • Harnessing social media
  • Having a grateful attitude 
  • Living in the moment
  • How to juggle life
  • Balancing grief and loss
  • The support of a community
  • Assigning meaning to your work 
  • Not taking life too seriously 

GRANGER SMITH

Gents, my guest today is an absolutely incredible man. His name is Granger Smith.

He is an extremely successful country music artist, host of the Granger Smith podcast, and co-creator of his alter-ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr., the spokesman for his clothing apparel company Yee Yee Apparel.

I’ve been following Granger for years now and I had always been impressed with his positivity and outlook on life and, after our conversation today, I am even more so. We talk about so much today. His positivity, energy, and excitement for life is infectious and it makes me want to be a better man myself. I think it will for you too.

IRON COUNCIL

Having men in your corner cannot be overstated. Too many men have decided to walk through life alone and, oftentimes, they’re left feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with all they have to deal with.

But banding with other men doesn’t make you weak or inferior. If anything, it gives you access to the tools and accountability needed to make you stronger. And, with over 800 men inside our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council, you are going to find the type of men you need to thrive inside the walls or your home, business, and in your community.

I know a lot of you have been sitting on the fence on the Iron Council so get off the fence and give it a try. Worst case scenario, you don’t find any value and you leave. But I think you’ll find that when you band with us, every facet of your life is going to improve and you’ll only be asking why you didn’t join us sooner.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and has personally been extremely influential in the work that we’re doing here with Order of Man and I could not be more grateful to him and proud to give you round two of our discussion.

THE ART OF IMPOSSIBLE

Gents, inside the Iron Council for the month of February, we’re talking about how to craft your day but for the month of March, we’ll be covering “The Art of Impossible” and uncover how you can turn your dreams, ideas, and ambitions into reality.

We’re going to be discussing and challenging each other how to learn more effectively, how to enter your best work in a “flow state,” and how to harness creativity for maximum results. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in and you want the powerful accountability that comes from banding with other men, join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.
