The Mike Drop podcast is hosted by former Navy SEAL, Mike Ritland. It is a not so politically correct discussion of wide ranging topics that span from government, politics and war to health and fitness, from guns and survival skills to food and nutrition with music, BBQ and a touch of everything else in between. This is THE platform that is completely raw, totally unfiltered and in your face, while still intellectually sound with good intuitive dialogue between A-holes that know what they’re talking about.

Clint’s book

After listening to this episode I’m getting two copies of his book. One for a likeminded friend. As my generation was raised by men and women of WW2, Korea and Vietnam. Prior to my Dad eventually dying of his combat wound in 1971, he stressed being self-reliant and he forewarned that our fishing trips and camping trips (in Death Valley, no less) or ‘bivouacs’, as he jokingly called them, was just the beginning of what I’d need to know as the world turned toward an uncertain future. Although he was full of hope and belief I’d have a wonderful life, he knew firsthand of its perils. I know he being born in Montana and raised in Wyoming greatly influenced learning the basics of the possibility of needing survival skills. I ignored that advice and direct, and indirect, guidance my entire adulthood. Yet after hearing this podcast I’m going to implement what I learn in Clint’s book. Albeit slowly and measured, but without delay. Thanks for such a great episode that ‘re-enlightened’ me.

Was five star, should still be a five star but..

Random commercials at the most inopportune times. This has been a great podcast, and if the input of commercials increases I’d venture to guess downloads will decrease. Hope this changes soon.

Awayagain ,

I always make time for some Mike Drop!

This is very different from the other podcasts I listen to but I’m never disappointed with the content and guests. Great job, Mike! I have a number of favorites interviews but most recently, Michael Durant and then Cody Lundin. Excellent.
