Description

It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

Matt Vincent is known for being a two-time Highland Games World Champion and strength athlete. He spent more than 10 years competing in powerlifting, strongman, weightlifting and highland games. Although his knee injury caused him to have a total knee replacement and remove himself from competing completely, Matt will continue to share his fitness passion through seminars, book writing, fitness apparel and podcast. In Matt's first book, Training Lab, he spelled out the philosophy of “The HVIII,” and tried to capture the spirit of self-improvement through self-loathing. This idea would serve as the spark that led to HVIII Brand Goods and a ton of adventures. Matt chronicles his travels and conversations with people in the strength game and beyond on his podcast UMSO.

Samantha Francine is an activist, a woman of color, and is dedicated to education and bringing about change. On June 3rd she was participating in a Black Lives Matter protest in the resort town of Whitefish, Montana when she was approached by Jay Snowden, a visibly irritated and irate man shouting obscenities and ripping signs out of protestors hands. At that moment she chose to do what I hope we all would have the courage to do, she stood her ground and stared the man down. The interaction between Samantha and Snowden and his subsequent behavior was captured on video, and the still picture of Samantha staring into his eyes quickly went viral, receiving national media attention.
Today's Full Auto Friday will focus on one question, instead of multiple, with no time cap. I received a message from a man getting ready to leave active duty. He has questions about whether or not we are, or have accomplished anything with our efforts. Questions about whether or not we are the "force for good" that we say we are, whether or not the fight is worth the cost of American lives, and how to move on. They were tough questions, I hope my answers did them justice. Enjoy

Traditionally these episodes are dedicated to multi-topic Q and A, today will be slightly different. The most regrettable moments of my life revolve around the times I have not taken action when I should have, when I have not said something that I should have, when I tolerated what I know to be wrong. I am as flawed as the next man.  The list of my mistakes is long and distinguished. I will stand in judgment of my actions, all of them. What I discuss on this episode needs to have been said long ago, many times, by far too many people. I was part of the problem, I should have been part of the solution. Question 1: CrossFit

After leaving the US Navy SEAL Teams in 2017, at the age of 24, he flew to Iraq and joined a small group of volunteer humanitarians known as the Free Burma Rangers. Until being shot by ISIS on a suicidal rescue mission, Mattos witnessed unexplainable acts of courage and sacrifice by the Free Burma Rangers, who, while under heavy machine gun and mortar fire, assaulted across ISIS minefields, used themselves as human shields, and sprinted down ISIS-infested streets-all to retrieve wounded civilians. Ephraim founded Stronghold Rescue and Relief, a non-profit dedicated to sending highly trained former Special Operations personnel into the heart of violent conflicts around the world in order to find and help the families caught in the crossfire, as well as assist oppressed people in multiple countries facing genocide and human trafficking.

Andy, I doubt you check the comments but this was a great episode in my opinion and I want to thank you for the podcast. I really enjoy the content you provide, and honestly think you might be the funniest man alive. I feel like now's a good time to tell you I have absorbed "what in the actual fuck" into my daily vernacular. Keep it up sir.

I know I am a little late to the table on listening to this but wanted to thank you for this episode. I am a 29 year National Guard Vet, infantry tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I have always felt like Jessica's real story has not been truly fleshed out and I think you did a great job getting it out there. I found myself feeling emotional for both of you, which also helps me deal with my experiences so thank you. I will be adding your podcast to my lineup. Thanks again.
