Dr. Kirk Parsley: Politics and Medicine in 2021
Over the past few years, there has been an unprecedented collision between medical science and politics. Some would say that politics has perverted science, and it seems that many people are viewing specific scientific view points as a religion.
I brought my good friend, Dr. Kirk Parsley on to help us sort through the weeds of this debate. I'd like this to get out to as many people as possible, so I've excluded several key words related to the subject matter. Nevertheless, you can probably figure it out.
Dr. Kirk Parsley served as a US Navy Seal. After his enlistment, he rejoined the Navy as a doctor and helped to create Naval Special Warfare's Resiliency Clinic. He is one of the world's foremost experts on sleep, and is the inventor of Doc Parsley's Sleep Remedy.

How to Defeat the Devil
Most cultural depictions of the Devil are as some sort of anthropomorphic beast with cloven hooves, a pointy tail, and horns.
In Napoleon Hill's work Outwitting the Devil, the Prince of Darkness is something different: a formless force that can invade the mind of any human being on Earth. He thrives by instilling negative thoughts, aimlessness, and self-doubt into the masses.
Regardless of what your religious beliefs are, you probably have a negative side, filled with thoughts that hold you back. In this episode, I take you through steps to defeating this Devil and moving your life forward.
From Average to Extraordinary: Mike Kurland
Mike Kurland is the founder and CEO of the Branded Group, a facilities service company based out of California. Over the past 8 years, Mike and his team built the Branded Group into one of the fastest growing companies in the country.
Nevertheless, things weren't always easy for Mike. He started his company from nothing after a heart-breaking divorce, after which, he had to hit the reset button.
Mike came onto the Warrior Soul Podcast to discuss his story and his advice for Veterans who are transitioning into new phases of their lives.

Your Mission Isn't Over
Over the last week, there's been an awakening in the Veteran Community. We've seen Veterans coordinating the rescue of Afghan interpreters, holding their political leaders to account, and advocating for their active duty brothers and sisters.
The question is: where do we go from here? If we fall back to doing the same things we've always done, nothing is ever going to change. We'll still be here five years from now, watching this country take a dive.
Veterans can no longer sit on the sidelines. We need to be taking more active roles in our communities and our lives.
A Dam Strong Business: Beaverfit
Mike Taylor and Alex Roodhouse served as officers in the United States Navy's Riverine Units, patrolling the Euphrates River during the war in Iraq.
Fitness was always an important part of their job, but as the demands of the job changed, so did the fitness requirements. When they first entered the military, the focus was on long runs and calisthenics. Yet jobs in the military increasingly called for a more functional, weight bearing, approach to fitness.
Additionally, many service members ended up getting completely out of shape when they went on deployment.
So after they got out of the military, Mike and Alex came up with an idea: all in one container gyms that could be shipped and placed anywhere.
That idea became Beaverfit, which today is a rapidly growing multi-million dollar a year business. You can find Mike and Alex's gyms today in places as diverse as Camp Pendleton and Miami Beach.
In this conversation, I talk with Mike and Alex about their journey from the military to entrepreneurship and how they're growing Beaverfit to meet the increasing demand for functional fitness.

Baktash Ahadi: Tragedy in Afghanistan
Baktash Ahadi was born in Afghanistan and raised in the United States. After college, he joined the US Peace Corps and went to Mozambique. As the US war in Afghanistan ramped up, Baktash decided to return to Afghanistan as an interpreter who worked alongside the US Marines.
In this episode, Baktash and I discuss the tragedy in Afghanistan and what led to it. We discuss the bureaucratic system, and lack of incentive to ever actually get anything done. We also discuss the repercussions of what this means for the Afghan people, and for American Veterans.

Chris has endured many challenges in his life, from his time in uniform as a Marine and more recent during his transition years. Chris has the end in sight; his focus and willingness to help others in fulfilling their lives is admirable and heartfelt. Thanks Chris and keep on charging. Semper Fidelis.
Really liked it until….
The podcast started talking about sensitive social and political topics that have nothing to do improving the warrior soul. He and his guests are VERY right leaning and talk about their views on CRT, politics, and the COVID vaccine. The LAST episode I listened to I couldn’t get through. He had some doctor (not an epidemiologist) talk about the vaccine mandate being disgusting, blah blah blah. Did some research on the doc and his website just pushes some sleep supplements (creatively called “Sleep Remedy” priced at $60 for 30 pills.) He also admitted not know much about the world. Neat. Stick to healing warrior souls and not talking about how liberal academic institutions are indoctrinating staff and students into they crazy leftest agendas like CRT.
A must-follow podcast for Veterans!
"Veterans are the sleeping giant in this country". Chris I could not agree with you more! I've just discovered your podcasts and I've been binging for the past couple of hours! Love it and I love what you do!
