    "No Margin, No Mission" aka "No Money, No Honey..."

    The world needs people who put both their backs and there hearts into the job of fixing the world's most difficult problems. But is your charity focused on profit margins and the bottom line? Or is it a mission-driven and working on the larger good.

    In this episode, we interview two different individuals who both give a damn. Regardless of how the work is done, there are a couple of immutable truths, and one of them is money.

    War - Love Your Enemy

    War changes everything for those who fight. Many struggle to find meaning in their lives, and the world around them. Some develop a "Military history and a Missionary Heart". This raw look at two different stories of Stacy Bare (Adventure not war), and Dave and Karen Eubank (Free Burma Rangers) will challenge your definition of a soldier... and who they are inside.

    Animals. Food, trophies or pets?

    Most people eat meat. But what makes one animal food, and another a pet? And how blurry is that distinction?

    What started out as an anti-poaching episode, turned into a deeper exploration of the ethics, and the messy and complicated relationship humans have with animals. Whatever your belief is now, it will be challenged in this discussion.

War - love your enemy

The title alone is enough to make us all stop and think. Great interviews! I knew Earl and David at ISB .... and just realized I knew Craig too (last name Martin, not Roland!) Looking forward to listening to more podcasts!

Digging into tough topics in an approachable way

Craig and Earl aren’t afraid to dig into heavy topics that most individuals shy away from. In today’s shaky political, social, and environmental climate, it’s important to have discussions such as these. Be prepared to walk away inspired to live a more conscious life, more aware of sacrifices average folk make every day for the betterment of mankind.

Great stories!

The focus on people “doing good” in the world offers complex issues , examined here in an engaging and thoughtful manner by two earnest storytellers. Their conversations make me want to sit on a comfy couch with a Kentucky bourbon and listen, listen, and listen. Waiting for more!
