It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

    Episode 137 - Adam DeRito

    Adam DeRito is a former firefighter, EMT, and search and rescue technician from New Jersey who was a member of the Air Force Academy Class of 2010. Since 2012 he has worked in the energy industry, and after completing his Master's Degree, he became a paratrooper in the Colorado national guard.
    Soon after that, he discovered his medical records were falsified by the United States Air Force Academy after reporting incidents of sexual assault as an undercover informant for the Air Force Office of Special Investigations during his time as a cadet.
    He has since made it his mission to correct his records, hold those officers accountable, and ensure that legal precedence is established in our legal system to uphold the constitutional rights of our nation's service members who are sworn to protect those very rights.

Insightful and Reasoned

I can’t remember how I first heard Cleared Hot. I’m not a big podcast listener and even less so of what could be considered “the alpha military type” so when I came across CH I was expecting a certain thing, some cool war stories and a certain slant on things. Well I was wrong, very wrong. Andy’s approach to interviews and his thought process is reasoned, impartial and articulate and manages to elicit the same from a lot of his guests. While I may not agree with some of what is said, in part due to cultural differences I cannot disagree with the logic being used and the context influenced decision making. The range of guests is becoming more and more varied across the political spectrum because Andy wants to have a conversation and is very open about that. The lack of an echo chamber is great to see and is bound to be confronting for people on either end of the political divide, ironically something that is needed more and more today. In particular the episodes with adventure sports people stand out, not because of stories of amazing trips (which yes there are) but because of the discussions of the thought processes behind them, the Jeff Shapiro conversation in particular is a stand out. Can’t recommend this podcast highly enough.

Keeping it real

The best podcast I have ever heard was from Andy with Mike Glover. It resonated on so many levels I had to share it with my mates. They all agreed the raw transparency and love of war is an addictive cycle. And now I also have a massive case of JAV envy.

Come to NZ for a bow hunt 🤙

Like Jock but at a reasonable hour

Andy is awesome , I heard the state he lives in, not so much, but heck I’m reviewing from New Zealand.
In all seriousness, if you subscribe to Jocko, then Andy is similar in a lot of ways, but a broader range of subjects and a lot more humour. It’s got a good vibe of mates chatting over a beer , instead of a schoolteacher setup of Jocko.
I had also heard he is taller than Jack Carr
