Great Show

This show is simply put phenomenal, the interviews conducted thus far have been both highly entertaining and inspirational. Hearing about some of the adversities that not only Kris and Ian have overcome but their guests as well is truly inspiring. I don’t necessarily like all of the topics they discuss (little much Metal music talk for me personally), but every episode has something to take away from it whether it be sometimes you just need to nut up and push through something difficult or to just take a minute to truly appreciate the reality that most of us are in a fairly good situation compared to a lot of the rest of the world. To me Kris especially embodies the term warrior scholar he is a man of action who is constantly striving to not only increase his own knowledge but to better other peoples lives in the process. This is getting a touch long winded so I’d just like to finish up by saying keep up the exceptional work and I am looking forward to following along in this journey.

Ian is back!

I was gutted when Ian left his previous podcast, and now he's joined up with another great co-host, Kris. This one is shaping up to be at least as great as Ian's previous podcast. Excellent intro, interesting guests, just the right balance of crazy banter and keeping on topic. Well done, gentlemen.

Nice!

Glad to see you back at it Ian.
