188 episodes

Best-selling writer and former infantry soldier Geraint Jones sits down with a variety of military and civilian guests to learn about the experience of soldiers - particularly, why we think and act as we do; how we can become better versions of ourselves both in and out of uniform; and how does our military experience inform and shape our attitude as we move on in life. Sometimes serious, often darkly funny, Veteran State of Mind is a look into the hearts and minds of people who have lived through dangerous and extraordinary situations, and come out on the other side.

The Human Experience

I’ve been a listener of the podcast for a while, during the gym, travel from place to place, any space with time, the podcast is a solid listen. With a wide range of guests and even wider range of experiences, Gez provides the platform for lessons learnt, experiences had, and deep knowledge to be heard. You may not agree with it all, however, if you stick around - like any mature person would - than you will learn a thing or two about the human experience.

We all know you’re here for rants and bants

In all seriousness I’ve been a listener since episode around episode 20 and gez has never gone a foot wrong. With it being his tinfoil hat talk with Joe or any of his deep and meaningful conversations with guests.

Do whatever you can to support the podcast, being: leaving a review. Buying a book from gez (especially brothers in arms) and most importantly subscribing to joes OF ;)
