  • Episode 19. Jodi Mitic

    28/11/2013 Duration: 01h22min

    So I'm chatting with a guy online that I figure, "Hey, I'll send some White Gold beans to and see what he thinks." Then we chat a bit later in the week and he says, "I'll be in LA these upcoming dates." I wasn't sure where I'd be as I was in the middle of filming a movie in NYC. Talk more and find out we can meet up for a workout/maybe a podcast. Then he tells me that vice.com is interviewing him. Why? Because he's combing the hills for treatment for PTSD. "Nice, bro. Pet project?" "Kind of." He answers. "I lost my feet in an explosion and I don't have it, yet many friends do. I wanna dispel myths and get them treated." Turns out, Jodi Mitic is a Special Forces sniper in Canada and a man of such humility that he doesn't bring it up until asked. Look for a part 2 a week from now.

    29/09/2013 Duration: 01h42min

We chat about fights/retirement/perseverance/diet/Kyle's time as a bodyguard to The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. Also, Kyle will be a coach on the next Ultimate Fighter. Keith and I dip into his retirement and our new coffee company that shall be forthcoming. The whole hour is Bulletproof as fuck!! Enjoy, you beautiful creatures!!
