When teachers of leadership and excellence share their motivation and lessons learned, it’s imperative that they have the real world examples of walking that walk to back it up. The guest of this episode couldn’t be a better example of overcoming odds and setting the example for all of us to live by. I sat down with former SEAL and Echelon Front instructor JP Dinnell where he gives us the riveting example of what determination and never settling while striving for greatness looks like.
026 Dr. Jason Piccolo
With all of the current political infighting about border security, the wall, and human trafficking - this episode is a timely and important one. I sat down with Dr. Jason Piccolo, long time border patrol and federal agent to discuss his book “Unwavering” and talk about all things border operations and politics. There were many details and specifics that I learned in this one, and it gives great insight into both the day to day issues facing our border agents as well as the macro big picture on the political scale.

025 Benito Olson
Combing special operations and working k9’s is the marrying of two things I’m most passionate about. In this episode I sit down with Benito Olsen, former K9 handler attached to SEAL team 6 for numerous combat deployments and remarkably harrowing stories of missions he’s conducted with dogs overseas. These stories are gripping, raw, and incredible. The emotions brought during this episode managed to overcome us both and I’m very honored to bring this showcasing of how important the dogs are to our special operations troops.
024 Lara Logan
To say this episode was humbling is a gross understatement. 6 years ago, Lara Logan interviewed me in my living room for a 60 minutes piece. In a twist of amazing fate, and almost 6 years to the day, I had the incredible opportunity to interview her in her living room in similar fashion. Like you’ve never heard or seen her before, she shares her amazing journey and career as a world renowned journalist for some of the biggest news agencies in the world, in some of the most dangerous places on earth. The bravery and courage she shows in this interview sharing details of being in war zones as well as being sexually assaulted in Egypt is impossible to overstate. Sit back and enter the world of one of the most badass women to ever grace the news world for an amazing compilation of stories.
023 Eddie Penney
The parallels of character that exists in a SEAL team 6 operator and devoted father who suddenly found himself taking care of several children by himself immediately returning from combat is both incredibly inspiring and uncanny. This episode I sit down with Eddie Penney, CEO of Contingent group and former SEAL team 6 operator. He gives us amazing insight into the incredibly competent and world famous unit that has been responsible for numerous high level operations since the war on terror began. Sit back and enjoy this thrilling and inspiring wild ride of warrior lifestyle and fatherhood Instagram.com/eddie.penney www.contingentgroup.com
