Look, anywhere you turn, you’re going to see the challenges we face as Americans. Some, just designed to stir up infighting and eyeballs on media outlets. Others, genuine threats to our way of life. It’s hard to know which is which but it’s imperative we start having some real discussions about the real issues.

 

My guest today is Mike Ritland, former Navy SEAL, New York Times Bestselling Author, and author of his latest book, Unf*ck America: A Respectful Open-Minded Conversation. Today, Mike and I don’t see eye to eye on everything but we have a powerful conversation about emotion, religion and bias in politics, whether or not inequalities exists in America, what hate speech is and isn’t, money in politics and the dangers of lobbying, the eroding checks and balances in American politics, and ultimately, how to Unfu*k America.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The double edged sword of social media
  • Understand that you might be wrong
  • Politicians: influencers or policy makers?
  • Lobbying is essentially bribery
  • Eliminating the political hurdles to get the right people in office
  • Inequalities in the country
  • Inaccuracies in the media narrative
  • People create things to be pissed about
  • Blaming others to excuse your own failure
  • Hate speech vs. being a dick
  • Evolution of the English language as it relates to gender
  • Voting with your wallet

I think everyone knows that that we are all judged, to some degree, by our appearance and how we present ourselves. You don’t have to like it and you don’t have to think it’s fair but it’s the truth. And, yet, so many of us (myself included) overlook the importance our physical aesthetic when it comes to presenting ourselves well.


My guest today is long-time friend, repeat guest, and men’s style coach, Tanner Guzy. Today, Tanner and I talk about utilizing clothing as an extension of you, the Aesthetic Overton Window and how it impacts what we wear, why you need to avoid being one-dimensional in the way you present yourself, why dressing well isn’t at all about suits and skinny jeans, and, ultimately, how you can garner influence by improving your presence.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The portrayal of style and fashion in pop culture
  • We have made heroes out of the court jesters
  • Social conditioning has influenced men’s attitude toward fashion
  • Appearance matters when leading others
  • You can be both the warrior and the intellectual
  • Make small tweaks instead of taking it to the extreme
  • Your appearance should mirror your capabilities
  • Don’t let your appearance undermine your credibility
  • How to start making changes
  • Find a style and brand that works and stick with it
  • How do you know when you look good?
  • “Getting away with” dressing inappropriately
  • The aesthetic Overton window
