Cleared Hot Episode – 10 with John Dudley. John is a world class archer and bow hunter. I first picked up a bow 18 months ago, and learned much of what I know by watching his videos on Youtube. Now, I am preparing for my first season of bow hunting, and was fortunate to spend a day and a half at his home, shooting arrows, rebuilding my bow, and picking a masters brain on best strategies for a first time bow hunter. He has an archery podcast called Nock On, a dedicated youtube channel Nockontv.com, and an archery academy Nockonarchery.com. Educate yourself, up your game, and Nock On!

The three most impactful changes/improvements to the SEAL Teams post September 11th, 2001. You might think I am talking about SEAL stuff, but remove the term SEAL, and think about the changes from the perspective of your own organization, regardless of what you do, and the sector. Effective leadership, and when to start thinking and acting like a leader.
My philosophy on training, why my wife and I decided to go to marriage counseling, Terrorism in Europe, Influential books, thoughts on self defense and courses like Sheepdog Response, and closing with my thoughts on the trend and desire to "Hack" your life.
A solo podcast from the road, and the middle of my move to Montana. Instead of a guest, I answered some questions from the Internet.

My thoughts on raising quality human beings, female operators in combat, and closing with my proudest moment, and my biggest regret. Thanks for the encouragement to go it alone instead of skipping a week.
