Former sieger ,

Heck of a guy on and off the show!

Great show!

#SoldierForLife ,

Combatives

Great podcast with Matt Larsen. There’s no doubt that organizations that incorporated MACP into their units were better units. More disciplined, fit, and more lethal. I went to level 2 with my unit as a 1SG to make sure everyone got the message. We adopt the warrior concept and lived by it. As a CSM, I was blessed to have BN CDR that understood and supported the program and we incorporated it into all our squad competitions. Humble to are some of my former soldiers are still committed to the program.

Justin C PA ,

Great podcast!

I love listening to Dr Mike Simpson. I am a orthopedic PA that works in trauma surgery. He does a great job in explaining medical concepts in a way untrained people can understand. I really like how he blends topics between medicine, military topics and various guests. All and all this is a great podcast for anyone interested in medicine, military, BJJ, and being man with a mindset of a warrior. Things I would like to see more of: more movie reviews, BBJ guests, an episode with Tim kennedy to discuss hunting hitler series, and a episode with Ryan Michler would be cool as I feel their podcasts have similar concepts minus the medical stuff.
