Whether you’ve never been hunting before, new to the pursuit, or a seasoned veteran, it’s hard to deny that hunting is in our blood. We, as a species have been hunting for hundreds of thousands of years and it hasn’t been until relatively recently that the art and science of hunting have come under so much scrutiny.

That’s why I’m extremely excited to introduce you to my guest today, Robbie Kroger and his project, Blood Origins. We talk about the importance of hunting, its positive effects on the environment and conservation efforts, why there tends to be such a polarization around the topic of hunting, both Robbie and I journey into the world of hunting, and how, whether you like it or not, hunting is in our blood.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The heart of hunters
  • Reaching non-hunters
  • Everyone has a story
  • How we got here today
  • A new wave of hunters
  • The rhetoric against hunting
  • Connecting to a primal urge
  • Hunting provides purpose
  • Sharing your harvest
  • Ending the pain quickly
  • Elevating the narrative of hunting
  • Celebrity mouthpieces
  • Becoming a better man
  • Managing ecosystems
  • Telling more unique stories
  • Reaching those who aren’t hunters


ROBBIE KROGER

My guest today is Dr. Robbie Kroger, a biologist who currently holds a position as the science coordinator for the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. He is also a professor at Mississippi State University in the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Aquaculture.

Outside of that, he founded a movement called Blood Origins which is aimed at sharing the “why” and “who” behind hunting. Where most hunting shows focus on the sport and the ultimate kill, Robbie set out to learn and understand who hunters are and why they do it.

He’s got some absolutely incredible films that document these stories and are share a side of hunting you may have never seen. Enjoy the conversation.

IRON COUNCIL

As of the release of this podcast, it’s New Year’s Eve and you’re likely thinking about what you want to do differently in 2020. That’s noble. You should be thinking about what the new year will hold.

But, unless you’re willing to do something about it and tap into a new way of thinking/operating, it’s likely that you’re going to fall into the same patterns as you always have.

That is exactly why the Iron Council can be so powerful. Hundreds of men have banded with us and used the tools, framework, and accountability to lose weight, salvage relationships, get married, get strong, secure promotions, start a new business, and develop self-confidence through action.

Whatever your objective is for the new year, we’ll help you codify the process of making it a reality. Join us inside the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Political correctness, cancel culture, and “wokeness” is destroying our ability to have important discussions about some of our most complex problems. Ironically, the people that continually engage in this behavior say they’re trying to help but end up doing the exact opposite.

That’s why I stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Zuby, to talk about these current issues and so much more. We discuss why people have such a difficult time engaging in intellectual dialogue, breaking the mold of people’s expectations, the future of humanity – both good and bad and why the “woke” are destroying civil and critical discourse.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fitting into a mold
  • Being multi-dimensional
  • Diluting the power of words
  • Uniting people
  • A healthy dose of skepticism
  • Humble expectations
  • Personal responsibility
  • Victimhood mentality
  • Billionaire bashing
  • Resentment & envy
  • The zero-sum mindset
  • Correcting our behavior 
  • Creating your own morality
  • A code of conduct
  • Battling over ideology
  •  

ZUBY

My guest today is unlike any other. His name is Zuby and he is a rapper, podcast host, public speaker, and entrepreneur and graduate from Oxford University.

I started following him several months ago when I saw a video of him destroying the British Women’s deadlifting record in an attempt to bring some logic to the discussion that men and women are biologically different.

He’s a man who is unafraid to share the way that he views the world and has been dubbed extremely controversial even though, he’s really not at all (we discuss this in the conversation).

Gentlemen, please enjoy my fascinating discussion with the one and only Zuby.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, by now you’ve heard all about the Iron Council. Many of you have banded with us. Many of you aren’t interested at all. And, many of you are on the fence about joining.

If you are on the fence, I understand. When I started down this path to fixing myself, it was hard for me to acknowledge that having a little help, instruction, and direction on the path was worthwhile.

I thought I could figure it all out on my own. And, maybe I could. But at what expense? Time and effort. That’s what it would have cost me. By banding with and learning from men who were further down the path than I was, I was able to accelerate the learning process and, therefore the results.

I became a more connected husband, a more engaged father, a more successful businessman and more fulfilled in my life. And, if you’re looking to do the same in your life, band with us – the 500+ who are on the same path and know how to help you get from here to there.

Every man knows that building effective and productive habits and systems is a crucial part of teeing him up for success. But, knowing and doing are two different things. And, it seems to me that most men fail to bridge the gap between the two because they don’t know how to build those habits into their lives.

That’s why I’m stoked to bring you into the conversation that James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, and I had about the subject. Today we discuss why you should focus more about systems and processes rather than goals, the power of changing your identity over changing your habits, an interesting take on discipline, will-power, and self-control you probably haven’t heard of, and focusing on the fundamental unit of progress and ultimate success.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Creating powerful results
  • Working in harmony
  • Eliminating failure
  • A margin of safety
  • The ultimate outcome
  • Associating pain with progress
  • Identity-based habits
  • Your habits are the pathway
  • Behaviors will lead the belief
  • The 2-minute rule
  • Mastering the art of “showing up”
  • The four laws of behavior change
  • Designing your own environment
  • Preparing for battles
  • Adjusting your systems

JAMES CLEAR

Gents, I’m stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. James Clear.

James has been covering the topic of habits, systems, goals, and processes for a very long time and, last year, he wrote a book titled Atomic Habits. Many of you have probably read it. At the time, we weren’t able to schedule a podcast but I’m honored that we were able to have him on now.

He’s the creator of the Habits Academy, a weightlifter, photographer, and a New York Times Best Selling Author and he’s been focusing on biology, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy to help men become more successful on their own individual paths.

I know you’re really going to enjoy this one and get a ton of value from it.

IRON COUNCIL

Gent’s, I just need to interrupt very quickly because I want to let you know that inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, we’re doing a deep-dive into the subject of this conversation – habits.

The 500+ men are uncovering the habits that are working for and against them, creating the systems to ensure they stick with the good habits and eliminate the bad, and holding each other accountable to staying on the path.

In fact, many of the practices that James and I have been discussing in this podcast are the very practices and strategies we’re employing inside the Iron Council.

In my work over the past 5 years, I’ve seen a disturbing trend in men of sedation, mediocrity, and lifelessness. It seems to me too many men have lost their appetite for adventure, excitement, and a life full of meaning and purpose.

If you feel like that describes you (even to some degree), or you know someone it does, this is going to be a powerful podcast. My guest today is Traver Boehm and he joins me to talk about his new book, Man Uncivilized. We cover what it means to be a man, how and why we should become more “uncivilized,” overcoming playing the perpetual “nice guy,” and showing up fully in our lives and the lives of others.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A risk to your ego
  • Undermining masculinity
  • Relative safety
  • Uncivilized Methodology
  • Finding common ground
  • The standard pathway for me
  • Tapping into your primal side
  • Harnessing the divine
  • How to access emotion
  • Be dangerous but not a danger
  • The X-factor
  • Overcoming legitimate threats
  • Creating an affirmative life
  • Asking for a need to be met


TRAVER BOEHM

Gents, I’m stoked to introduce you to my friend, Traver Boehm.

He is a strength and conditioning coach, a Crossfit gym owner, an MMA fighter, a bodyguard, a surfer, acupuncturist, and so much more. He’s got an incredible resume of interesting life experiences including sitting in complete isolation and pitch-black darkness for a month in Guatemala.

It’s those types of experiences that give Traver perspectives that many of us haven’t considered before. Much of which is documented in his new book, Man Uncivilized, which is what we cover in our conversation today. I haven’t known Travis for long but I definitely admire his passion and excitement for life, what it means to be a man, and a willingness to help others on their own path of masculinity.

IRON COUNCIL

As I’m sure you know, habits make the man. We’ve all heard the quote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”

That’s exactly what we’ve covering inside our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, this month – habits. We’re uncovering how to eliminate habits that don’t serve us, discovering ones that do, and implementing systems and processes to ensure that we incorporate the right habits into our lives.

If you’re interested in banding with us and creating the frameworks that will ensure your success on the family and/or career front, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and lock in your spot along with 500+ other men who are on similar paths.

In addition to that, we’ve got my conversation with James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, joining me on the podcast next month to do a deeper dive.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more about the brotherhood and claim your seat at the table.

Social media is a powerful tool. If it weren’t for the good social media has done, you likely wouldn’t be tuned into this podcast right now. That said, it seems to me that the use of social media is making us dumber or, at least, encouraging us to behave that way.

My guest today, Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, joins me to talk about exactly why that is and the type of thinking he refers to as “Loserthink.” It’s also the title of his new book subtitled, How Untrained Brains are Ruining America. Today, we talk about the fact that being right and being wrong feel the same, how to determine what battles to fight online, how shaming and mockery can be used positively, and ultimately how you can avoid thinking like a loser.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Augmenting your intelligence
  • Wrestling with social media
  • A “slippery slope”
  • Linear thinking
  • Predictable variables to success
  • Influencing other people
  • Enlightened selfishness
  • Succeeding at systems
  • Mental addiction
  • Adding to your talent stack
  • There’s always a deeper level
  • Engaging in “loser think”
  • Determining a stranger’s thoughts

SCOTT ADAMS

Gents, I am stoked to be able to introduce you to my guest today, Scott Adams. Before I do, I want to make sure I thank my friend, Jordan Harbinger, for introducing us.

You may not know who Scott is right away but I’m sure you know Dilbert. Scott is the creator of Dilbert and the bestselling author of Win Bigly and his new book, Loserthink.

Although Scott really started to gain attention and traction with Dilbert, his political commentary is, in my mind, just as, if not more, important. If you’re interested, you can check out what he has to say on Twitter (@scottadamssays). He’s never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers and I think that is why he has gained such a following – his ability to say what needs to be said and his ability to say it in a way that connects with so many of us.

SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES

Gentlemen, we’re all aware of how important systems and processes are on our path to success but how many men have not created those systems in every facet of their lives. These are the same men who often wonder why that cannot seem to get ahead.

This month, inside the Iron Council, we’ll be exploring and deep-diving into the systems and processes I use and what the 500+ members are using to achieve maximum results. We’ll help you unpackage your systems, explore what’s working, remove what isn’t, and rebuild a strategy that will ensure your success.

If you’d like to know more and build your blueprint for success, band with us inside the Iron Council. You’ll get the tools, challenges, assignments, camaraderie, and brotherhood needed to thrive.
