Cleared Hot

It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

      Cleared Hot Episode 37 - Children of the Gun


      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...

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


      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...

      Cleared Hot Episode 31 - Chad Ward


      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/

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...

      Cleared Hot Episode 29 - Freedom of Speech


      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...
