    Ep 17 - Was the Afghanistan war all for nothing - IG Live audio

    In a very special episode of The WarriorU Podcast, hosts Trent Burnard and Bram Connolly share their views on the Afghan war and current events. Drawing on his extensive military experience – including two tours to Afghanistan in 2008 and 2010 – Bram details his memories of the country, its army and the Taliban. He reflects on the original mission of the western forces 20 years ago, and the mistakes made and goals kicked since the US and Australia entered the country. Zero topics were off limits in this Instagram Live turned WarriorU Podcast – from veteran mental health concerns to the experiences of young Afghan women and girls under Taliban rule. But most of all, it’s an episode about positivity and hope – and one you won’t want to miss.

    This week on The WarriorU Podcast, Trent and Bram are joined by world-renowned Psychologist, Dr Barry Schwartz, to discuss the complex topic of choice – what it is and how to make better ones. Does free will really exist or are all of our choices determined by our genes and experiences? Does having more choice really make you happier? Are we losing our wisdom and sense of character in this chaotic modern world? And should we really choose to bring our authentic self to work? By the end of the episode, you’ll have the answers (or at least, the beginnings of answers) to all of these questions and more.

Consistency (compound interest) - The eight wonder of the world

Where do I begin with The WarriorU. Bram and now also Trent, have and continue to deliver development breadcrumbs to lead you to become a better human. With pockets of information and eye opening facts that, if you keep an open mind can make everything click. From sports science to mentality work and everything in between, The WarriorU team & guests deliver a better understanding on how to advance on the next step personally with health or collectively in a team environment, advancing leaders. I have learned so much over the years and felt privileged enough to shake brams hand, that’s what impact this show has.
