Be the Example I have wandered a bit. I Served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of some, taught some fitness, and spent the last few years speaking to companies and leaders. It has been a journey, and it is nowhere near over.

Cleared Hot Episode 38 - Camp Thunder Chicken with John Dudley and Trevor Thompson

4/23/2018
More
A Thunder Chicken is a turkey, at least that is what I have been told. This episode is from our hunting camp deep in the back country of Kansas, where we were competing in the World Turkey Hunting Championships. Spoiler alert, we did not win. After two days in a blind I did not see a single turkey. I heard one, I think. The best part of any hunting trip for me so far has been the people, this trip was no different. Instead of being the new kid on the block in the archery world, I got to...

Cleared Hot Episode 37 - Children of the Gun

4/16/2018
More
Other than the endless political banter, guns, and specifically school shootings have lead the headlines recently, and for good reason. My children are now being called the "Mass Shooting Generation," a term I wholeheartedly disagree with. Our use of language, much like our objectivity, has been utterly lost. We can continue to look for "light switch" solutions to these complex issues that did not arrive overnight, or we can, as a society, agree that there is a problem, and commit...

4/9/2018
More
I did my best to answer a variety of questions received over the last six weeks from social media. Topics varied, but I covered everything from training, mullets, challenges and difficulties of being a military parent, blessings in disguise, skydiving and BASE jumping, broadheads, back country split boarding, and more. Thank you for all of the questions and support, I'll answer more of the questions in another podcast soon.

Cleared Hot Episode 33 - Dr. Mohammed Ahmed

3/12/2018
More
Dr. Mohammed Ahmed is the Medical Director at the Kaizen Brain Center, located in La Jolla, California. His specialties are memory disorder/dementia, and brain injuries. If you are anything like me, you are confused by the multiple terms used when discussing brain injuries. CTE, TBI, PCS, Concussion, etc. I hear them often, but I don't know what they mean, or the differences between them. I have a history of concussions, and a few loss of consciousness events, so this podcast is as much...

Cleared Hot Episode 31 - Chad Ward

2/26/2018
More
Chad Ward is a professional Pit Master. You should think of him as the Yoda of BBQ, or perhaps Darth Vader. I'm not sure which he would prefer. I have drooled over pictures of Chad's work for months, and finally got to meet him during my recent hog hunt in Oklahoma, where he was turning wild game into amazing Nock 2 Fork meals. Chad is the co-founder of Whiskey Bent BBQ, a competitive BBQ team, and the name of his BBQ supply store. https://www.whiskeybentbbqsupply.com/

More
An early morning podcast over a cup of coffee from hunting camp. John Dudley is a world class archer, bow hunter, and teacher of all things archery. Torsten and I are not, but we connected in Oklahoma for a hunt. When Torsten is not spot and stalking hogs, he calls New York home, and is an Executive Vice President at Atlantic Records. Not only does he possess an incredible amount of knowledge about the music industry, his name means "Thor's Hammer." What else needs to be said!...

Cleared Hot Episode 29 - Freedom of Speech

2/6/2018
More
True Freedom of Speech, at least in my opinion is a knife that cuts both ways. This past week I was inundated with questions about my thoughts on the interaction between a Los Angeles high school teacher, and a student wearing a Marine Corps sweatshirt. This incident made national news quickly, and was the topic of many social media platforms. Many people assumed I would share their outrage, I do not. I reference the recording in the episode, and if you have not listened, here is a link...

If you are familiar with the initial growth of CrossFit, and the CrossFit Games, Chris will need no introduction. If you are not familiar...Chris Spealler is an 8 time CrossFit Games competitor, the owner of CrossFit Park City, and Icon Athlete. Chris and I travelled the US for many years together teaching the conceptual foundation and movements of the CrossFit program, and he has now planted his feet in Park City Utah.

Cleared Hot Episode 26

1/8/2018
More
Ethics, principles, bravery and cowardice all wrapped in a question about my thoughts on hunting. It is certainly not for everyone, and I am far too inexperienced to answer most questions about it, but ethics are ethics, and they don't belong on a sliding scale.

Cleared Hot Episode 24 - An Adventure In France

12/19/2017
More
After arguably the worst travel experience I have had in ten years, I was able to link up with John Dudley, and THE Hunter Phelps in the mountains of France. Our target was the Chamois, a species of the goat-antelope family. The terrain was spectacular, the animals were elusive and alert, and at the end of the trip, we headed home empty handed. The experience gained, and the lessons learned, for me, made the trip a highlight of my year. Round two is already in the planning stages.

I count him as one of my closest friends, and I always enjoy picking his brain for opinions and insight. http://powerathletehq.com

I got a call from the IRS this morning, or at least that is who they said they were....I had some free time, so I called them back. After that, I dug in to some internet questions and we had a bow hunting extravaganza. My bow set up, arrow set up, practice routine, spot and stalk hunting, shoe selection, bravery and fear, habits and discipline, and most importantly, how and why we made the move to the 406 and how it has been so far.

I think we covered it all on this one. Thoughts on every day carry items, concealed carry and actions by armed civilians, tips on getting in to skydiving, the value of sports for kids, CrossFit training, and my two cents on advice for parents. Hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Cleared Hot Episode 20 - A small rant, questions from the internet

11/5/2017

I intended for this episode to be dedicated to answering military themed questions from the internet. After ranting for 25 minutes over my frustration about the handling and reaction to the deaths of the Army soldiers in Africa, I did actually answer some questions. Thank you to those who submitted them, and thank you to everyone listening.

10/19/2017

This episode focuses on two questions received from listeners. The first is on the value of stress testing and "inoculation," why it is the bedrock of SEAL training, and how everyone, regardless of occupation can benefit. The second question is about dealing with leadership failures, the lessons to be learned, and moving forward.

Cleared Hot Episode 17 - Reflections on Vegas and a successful elk hunt

10/9/2017
More
It was one hell of a week. I started my hunt with the news that the Vegas shooting had occurred hours before I woke up. There is some great information being discussed, and some wildly inaccurate information being touted as fact. It was and is a tragedy. I hope our country is mature enough to take the time for reflection, and potentially improvement. In other news that does not matter...I was successful in my elk hunt.
