This was an incredible episode. It shifted my paradigm of what it means for an obstacle to be hard to overcome. I want to dig down deeper now and all more of myself. Incredible.

This podcast faces a dark moment in the history of the world. My eyes leaked through a good portion of it; however, my heart became more resolute. It was time well spent. I am grateful I listened.

I’m gonna say this JOCKO ..1) I’m literally forever grateful for the time you have put in and your efforts and appropriate interview style on this episode. I’m deeply grateful!!! I imagine that you would’ve had a hard time to prepare for this. I don’t know how you did it but BRAVO BRAVO. Thanks again for your time and I am a huge fan of your podcast but this one really hit me hard

Thank you for your story. You sir are the definition of a warrior, fought in a large major war but then kept fighting in the forgotten war and a war no one respected at the time. You may be a soldier but Semper Fi.

Echo always sounds like he's half asleep and doesn't want to be there. Show some enthusiasm for once Echo.

another amazing podcast, though I may not be in the military at the moment there is a lot I can apply to my life as a young leader. Also helps me deal with some significant changes of lifestyle and plan

Wow, Rogan put me here and to be the 1st cast I have heard of Jockos I am grateful. Dakota Myers is an amazing American. Thank all of those who have sacrificed for our freedoms.

what a ludicrous premise. Glorifying war is puerile and dumb. I've fought in one and war is hell for everyone taking part. I'm surprised at Jocko.
