    Tom Kier, Tactical Training Expert

    Tom Kier, Tactical Training Expert

    One of Ethan's favorite roles was playing D in the Hulu series, Chance. The character D was based on Tom Kier. Tom has been a combatives instructor for the past 30 years and he is considered a subject matter expert by USSOCOM (The Unites States Special Operations Command). He also holds a master instructor/Tuhon rank in Sayoc Kali. Sayoc is a Filipino martial arts system developed by Pamana Tuhon Chris Sayoc. Mindset is an integral part of Sayoc, and Ethan thought it would be a good idea to get Tom on the podcast to share some of those principles, and how they can assist in achieving your goals.

Entertaining & informative

I’ve really enjoyed the American Glutton podcast episodes so far - great diversity of guests and Ethan is super articulate and well informed about the subjects at hand.

Having gone through my own weight loss journey ( 300lbs to current 169 ) and also having 4 daughters ( including one named Grace ) I feel a connection to the discussion.

Keep up the great work.

Unique and Utterly Engrossing

So many podcasts about diet are marketed to women or, more generally, folks who yearn to lose weight. As a man who thinks about food and what it means both personally and its role in broader culture, this is the first podcast that mixes humor, intelligence, and experience.

I have always enjoyed Ethan Suplee as a actor, but it’s in this more candid and unscripted version that I feel like he’s speaking directly to men like me.

Chicks who listen

I have listened to every episode as soon as I saw that you were doing a podcast. This is such a raw and real, relatable podcast.

It’s so absolutely fantastic! I look forward to every episode because it’s just all real. Every ounce of real ness is there and it’s just. I can’t even find all the words it’s so amazing!

Such a contrast to some other shows I listen to which while informative aren’t all to relatable. Your show feels like I’m listening to a group of friends and I absolutely love it!

Thank you so much!
