    Alex Stewart of Premier Body Armor: Family, Faith, and Building Legacy through Business

    Alex Stewart of Premier Body Armor: Family, Faith, and Building Legacy through Business

    When you picture a family business, do you think of bulletproof vests and ballistic protection? That's the unique world Alex Stewart of Premier Body Armor and I explored as we unraveled the company's journey from a small metal shop to the forefront of personal armor. Our conversation took us through the transformation of protective gear, touching on the practicality of innovations like the everyday armor t-shirt bundle—a favorite of mine for its unobtrusive defense—and the clever inclusion of ballistic protection into everyday items like backpack inserts. Alex's insights reveal a commitment to safety that blends seamlessly with daily life, offering a sense of security without the bulk.

    Tucker Talks to Putin, The Woke Regimevangelicals, and 'He Gets Us' Super Bowl Ads

    Tucker Talks to Putin, The Woke Regimevangelicals, and 'He Gets Us' Super Bowl Ads

    I'm joined by pastor Dan Berkholder to discuss Tucker Carlson's interview with Vladimir Putin, and why it's significant that Putin talked for 30 plus minutes about the history of Russia. Among other things, Tucker said Moscow is a beautiful city, unlike those in America. Why do we tolerate crime and filth in our streets? As it turns out, we might just prefer it. 

    We also discuss the 'He Gets Us' Super Bowl ads, why Christians prefer badness, and how our woke regime-aligned leaders in the church have sold us out. Christians have a ton of money, but they've spent it in the most worthless, woke places. Why?

    Plutarch's Timeless Wisdom: Alex Petkas on Courage, Leadership, and the Shaping of Great Men

    Plutarch's Timeless Wisdom: Alex Petkas on Courage, Leadership, and the Shaping of Great Men

    In this episode, I talk with Alex Petkas, host of the Cost of Glory podcast. He's also a former professor with a Princeton PhD in Classical Literature. His podcast is a dramatic retelling of Plutarch's Lives, which is one of the most influential books in human history. We'll discuss why Christians can benefit from Plutarch. 
    We talk about why there are so few great men today, why rhetoric is important for leadership, and how Alex once interacted with Elon Musk on Twitter/X about Sulla. Speaking of which, why did Sulla execute his political rivals? 
    Check out Alex's work. 
    You can also check out his Substack (referenced in the show).

    Lonesome Dove, July Johnson, and the Failure of Weak Men

    Lonesome Dove, July Johnson, and the Failure of Weak Men

    Larry McMurtry's book, Lonesome Dove, earned him a Pulitzer prize. The author was a master at unpacking relational dynamics in engaging prose. In this episode, we talk about how July Johnson embodies the failures of the soft Mr. Nice Guy.

    We also talk about practical steps for me to stand up to their wives, which is the only recipe for a happy home. We'll dissect the compelling interplay between characters like Gus McCray and Woodrow F. Call, offering profound reflections on life through their humorous dialogues. We also explore the real-world trend of middle-aged career women staying single, analyzing societal norms and personal choices.

    Discover the perils of marrying the wrong woman in this cautionary exploration of women's manipulation and the importance of finding a partner who embodies the Proverbs 31 ideal.

    The Patriarchy is Inevitable: Taylor Swift, Rush Limbaugh, & Father Rule

    The Patriarchy is Inevitable: Taylor Swift, Rush Limbaugh, & Father Rule

    As the Taylor Swift X saga continues, it's interesting to note that her father, her producers, and the support staff around Taylor are largely comprised of—wait for it—men. In this episode, we'll unpack just how God has ordered the world and how patriarchy, like Thanos claimed about himself, is inevitable. 
    Rush Limbaugh talked about girls softening their conservative fathers. 
    The Daily Mail covered my tweet, which now has 22.5 million impressions. 
    Newsweek also weighed in. 
    As did the Washington Examiner, which said Taylor can save America.

Biblically sound leaders of men!

Great job pointing men towards truth and what it really means to be a man applying God’s word to life now in modern day 2024

Immature Man, Godly Ideal

I have greatly benefitted from much of what Eric has put forth as a vision of manliness, industriousness, ethics, and virtue. Moreover, the holistic vision that focuses not only on the spiritual but the physical has been helpful. My frustration with Eric stems from his often immature and tribe-exclusive comments: referring to Jake Meador as “deranged” because of his clothing style, calling Karen Swallow-Prior an “ugly, ugly, nasty woman”, taking personal shots at DeYoung over theological disagreements, commonly referring to something he disagrees with as “gay” — and all of this from the mouth a pastor. Eric, brother, God has gifted you with a great understanding and vision of masculinity but I would humbly encourage you to examine your words, attitude, and passions of your heart that habitually overflow in forms that are much more aligned to the contentious spirit of our age than to that spirit which authoritatively proclaims truth in love. Thankful for much of what you have taught and hope to see continued sanctification in the aforementioned areas. SDG.
