Join us in this week ASK ME ANYTHING as we share our exciting preparations for an upcoming axis deer archery hunt in Hawaii. Listen in as we detail the rigorous daily archery practice sessions and the vital adjustments needed for pinpoint accuracy – reminiscent of zeroing in a rifle. We'll explore the delicate balance between high expectations and the humility that comes with such an immersive outdoor experience, emphasizing the need for adaptability, not just in hunting, but in all walks of life.

Power and leadership come with immense responsibility, a theme we tackle head-on as we discuss the contentious ideas put forth by Erik Prince and the ethical implications they carry. We scrutinize the thin line between the beneficial use and potential abuse of power, drawing insights from religious texts and philosophical musings on the human condition. In a similar vein, we navigate the intersection of personal faith and secular professional life, advocating for the integration of Christian principles in a way that respects diverse beliefs while avoiding logical fallacies in reasoning.

If we have any hope of saving this great nation, we’re going to have to learn to turn to the generation behind us and equip them with the mindset of truth, righteousness, and individual responsibility. Unfortunately, much of society (including the halls of academia where they spend most of their time) are hellbent on instilling the mindset of relativism, degeneracy, and victimhood.

Today, I’m joined by Harrison Schenck of Save Your Sons to talk about what it’s going to take to turn the tide of culture for our boys who we’ll eventually call on to lead. We talk about the participation trophy generation, the warped conception of what a man is, overcoming the neediness of boys and men, when comparison can serve us, the dangers of “white knighting,” and saving our sons for and from society.

We know we’d like to step more fully into our masculinity in relationships. We, as men, inherently know that it makes for a much more rewarding and fulfilling partnership with the fairer sex. But what does it look like in practicality and application?

My guest today is author and men’s coach, GS Youngblood. Today, we talk about why masculine leadership is a gift, how to evoke women to relax into their femininity, why a man’s job is to provide structure to a relationship and how to do it, how men should handle their emotions, and why, in relationships, it can be a good idea to address feelings first and facts later.
