The Famous Robertson Family On Faith, Family, and Of Course, Duck Hunting
On this special crossover edition of the Proud American podcast, host Johnny Joey Jones teams up with the famous Robertson family for a special Unashamed X Proud American podcast. Here's what Joey had to say about it:
After eight years in the Marine Corps and deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, one of the things I enjoy most now is getting into the outdoors to hunt or fish. These experiences are always best when you can do it with good friends and good people. Today's guests are just that. My friends, the Robertson family, are the Proud Americans who won over the country in their hit reality TV show "Duck Dynasty." And if you watch just one episode, you know duck hunting, faith and family is what they believe in. I joined Phil, Si, Jase and Al in West Monroe, Louisiana, for an early season hunt. Afterwards, we sat down for fellowship, and let's just say an entertaining conversation.
