So many of us are doing all we can to break the cycles we were raised in and provide a better life and future for the next generation. Through our pain and struggles, we can grow into the person we are meant to be. On the other hand, it is easy to blame our circumstances and choose the “easy” path of making excuses as to why we are not reaching our goals. The key is to choose the hard path first and pave the way for an easier future for ourselves and our children. Today's guest is an incredibly inspiring example of doing just that, and he encourages us to dig deep to find our core values and filter everything in our lives through them in order to find success.Matt Schneider is the Executive Vice-President & equity owner of a global software (SaaS) company with a target valuation of over $150M. He is also the co-founder of The MDK Project, a leadership development program, and The Squire Program, a development program for young men and their fathers to experience together. Prior to becoming a successful entrepreneur, Matt spent 7 years in Special Operations on SWAT and was a TFO on the United States Marshal's Office Fugitive Team. Matt has helped 7 and 8-figure companies elevate their profits by focusing on leadership, team cohesion, and problem-solving complex issues that are costing a great deal of time and money.In this episode of Lead Sell Grow - The Human Experience podcast, Matt gets real with us about the fact that too many people in our society bail at the first sign of a struggle or adversity. What we need to do is embrace hard times and use them as an opportunity for growth and development for who we want to become. Regardless of our background or personal circumstances, we all have the ability and obligation to take charge of our life and pivot toward a life of abundance. Matt is open about the mistakes he made in his early business days, and how those mistakes cost him his health, happiness, and a lot of money. By establishing his non-negotiable core values and filtering everything in his life through them, Matt was able to turn his life around and create abundance and success.Key highlights:Matt's background and childhood and why he wanted to break the cycle he was raised inWhat it was like to be in Special Operations on SWATEmbracing growth in adversityHaving values and non-negotiables for his habits, relationships, and businessMatt's 4 core values and how they have changed every aspect of his lifeThe problem with cancel culture and why everyone is easily triggeredWhat was going wrong that made Matt create core values?How he helps people realize their potentialHow having ore values has changed his lifeHow Matt measures if he is improvingToo many people lack the discipline to get where they want to goHow to turn your employees into Intrapreneurs and have them fired up about making your company betterWho Matt's program is for and what people get out of itPeople will do more to avoid pain than to seek pleasureOn the other side of adversity and pain, is where passion is foundHis advice to someone that doesn't know where to start to reach their goalsConnect with Matt Schneider:Website: ignitionyearcoaching.comInstagram: @mattschneider_officialConnect with Eric:Be sure to connect with me in the Lead Sell Grow - The Human Experience Mastermind Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/leadsellgrow/Pick up your copy of B2B Sales Secrets HereLearn more about our services: www.TheGoalGuide.comImprove your sales and stay connected – Free Gifts Here https://shor.by/TheGoalGuide

This week's Team Never Quit Podcast guests, Mike Sarreille and Rey Baviera bring a gut-wrenching, firsthand account of their collective 35 years of military service as Navy SEALs - most notably witnessing the valor and heroism of fellow SEAL Michael Monsoor, who willingly jumped on a grenade to save those around him. While the story is brutal, it is equally heart-warming to know the source of “Mikey”s character and moral fabric. During his 20-year military career, Mike Sarreille served as a Recon Marine, Scout-Sniper, and a U.S. Navy SEAL Officer. Much of his career was in the Special Operations community, including the elite Joint Special Operations Command. He now works with small businesses and Fortune 500 companies on the principles of leadership, teamwork, entrepreneurship, and living a life of balance and purpose. Rey Baviera served almost 15 years in the SEAL Teams, with multiple deployments and operations in violent urban environments in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also worked as an intelligence and targeting officer at the Special Operations Command Pacific. He co-founded VTH Consulting, with the intent of bridging the gap between medical providers and veterans, helping veterans fight for the VA disability claims they morally, ethically, and legally deserve. May the memory of Michael Monsoor never die. Read the book honoring “Mikey” - Defend Us in Battle, wherever books are sold. In this episode you will hear: • Not all Marines are equal, just like not all SEALS are equal. Performance comes into play. • Rey: I had no direction, and I joined the military because I had made a promise to my brother. • Mike: I'm standing in for Rose Ray who wrote the book Defend Us in Battle alongside George Monsoor, Mikey's father. • My second time in Ramadi, I fired my weapon for the first time. • You don't really know what you're walking into until guys start getting wounded,. • Shark base [one of the places we slept] was once of Saddam's vacation palaces. We had tents in there. • We had to take bottled water showers. • Mikey spoke thru actions, not words. • It's highly competitive in the SEAL teams in a good way. • With each mission, we learned more lessons. • When you step into combat, there's a inter service rivalry. But eventually you get past the butt-sniffing phase. But when we mesh together, it's amazing what we can do as a team. • The longer you sit in a position, you lose relative superiority and the momentum shifts, because you're static. • It's different than training when you know it's a live grenade in front of you. • Mikey did not hesitate. He went right down on it. What came next was brutal. • While the SEAL teams may have trained Mike, his character and moral fabric of who he was was given to him by his family. His family is like nothing you've ever seen before.

And you can tell when you invest in syndication and when you invest in these deals, you know where your money is going. That's the difference. And with us, we're buying ugly stuff, and we're changing it and making it a clean and safe and positive place for people to live and it's still affordable. We're not turning it into million-dollar, little condos, we're turning it into, you know, homes that people can live in and raise their kids.  [00:00:44] Sam Wilson:  Sam Sells is a retired US Air Force officer and combat veteran who founded Wild Mountain Capital in 2018 with his as he says hero dad. Sam, welcome to the show.   [00:00:56] Samuel Sells: Hey, thanks for having me, Sam. Love the name and am super happy to be here.   [00:01:01] Sam Wilson:  Absolutely. You got a great first name. Well, certainly appreciate that. It's great to have two people with the same name on the show. There are three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show in 90 seconds or less. Can you tell me? Where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?   [00:01:15] Samuel Sells: Yeah, we started in 2018, I was still on active duty Air Force trying to find a way to continue my impact on the world man started out with mobile home parks trying to take really distressed mobile home parks and creating nice clean places to live. We did that with found out that you can make money doing that. And a lot of it. And so we continued buying mobile home parks about eight more parks that year and to 2019. So in 2000 we had bought 10 properties that first year about killed myself. And then this was the amount of work we were doing slowed down that next year only bought one more property the following year. And then after that, we bought another 10 properties this time, apartment complexes and we did a storage development ground up develop development that we purchase and turnover. So now we're sitting at 20 properties. And we're in exit mode to a certain degree. We have property selling right now that we've finished our business plans on or gotten to a point where we could not finish the business plan due to COVID restrictions. But we are frozen. And it's been a fantastic journey.   [00:02:22] Sam Wilson: Okay, so you decided 2018. Look, we're gonna get into commercial real estate. Let's go close 10 mobile home parks.   [00:02:34] Samuel Sells: Yeah, so we just decided that we, you know, my dad doesn't retire, I'm coming out of Air Force retirement. Yeah, I can make money and go with Puerto Rico and probably the lid just fine. But I love my family. And I still want to make a difference in the world. And so we figure out how can we make money and make a difference. And we had $0. So like, I had $30,000 in a Roth IRA TSP, and my dad had 80 grand, and that was his entire retirement. And we put those together and we bought two mobile home parks. We turned that 80 grand somehow into $170,000 Credit cards that may have been involved. So was refinancing my core, but we did it with a couple of lines of credit. And we bought these two properties in and we made money and we started making like $10,000 a month and pass passive income we're like, This is crazy. We've got something here. And we totally cleaned up one of these little old park. People love this. crime dropped significantly, occupancy skyrocketed payments on time. And it just was such a nice thing to see. No more trash, no more other stuff. And we just like this is it. Now how do we do it? And so I started finding out about syndication. How do you raise money? FCC rules, and regulations, I absorbed everything I possibly could about it, and went out there and started doing it. And that's when we like I've never raised a single dollar from anybody and somehow I raised like $2 million that first year.   [00:04:06] Sam Wilson: Wow. Okay, what did you do to inspire confidence in your investors like, Hey, my name is Sam. I bought a couple of parks, we are making money on it. But by the way, now we're gonna go we're going gangbusters and buying stuff left and right. Get in because it's gonna be great. Like, how did you sell that?   [00:04:26] Samuel Sells: So, you know, I started flipping single-family homes in the early 2000s. We made it through 2008 crisis because we were buying we were flipping right and we were buying really distressed properties and good locations. And when the market crashed, guess what? You know, I paid $50,000 for this house. I spent 25 grand on the rehab. I'm selling it at $130,000 Cuz houses were cheap back then. Even at the pinnacle, and the market crashed and all of sudden you know, I had two homes I remember closing a 2000s Seven, December 2007, both of them fell apart because the markets are just ripping apart. And you know, we ended up reducing the price on one from 130, down to 120. And so much money, right. And then the other one, we turned to a long term rental held on it, I think for seven years, refinanced it probably four times and pulled cash out over those 10 or 12 years, made a ton of money off that little house in the middle of San Antonio, and then sold it and use the cash from that to buy apartment complex later on, a couple years ago.   [00:05:27] Sam Wilson: Yeah, man, that's great. I guess the, when you start raising money from investors, what was the thing I guess that you feel like you did? Well, that inspired confidence in the people investing with you? [00:05:42] Samuel Sells: Yeah, so a great question. And one was, you know, having a track record of success, it wasn't our first time and in the Air Force, I have been traveling around the world, I've been working with foreign militaries, for governments doing everything from building clinics and Africa, like ground up engineering, construction, the whole thing, right, which is a totally different world, right? Asia, helping them develop systems and working in their hospitals to Hey, Do this, do that? And how do you guys like to do this, you know, building sustainable systems that when I leave, that they continue, I'm not the ugly American great book, if you every death, but understanding how to work with others, right. And so and at the time, when I started raising, I was responsible for a $68 million rehab on a 500-bed hospital at mash ruins. And I was the project lead, you know, reporting to the big leagues. And so I had a ton of project experience, I had a ton of team experience, I spent a lot of time so they're there for Special Operations doing stuff and, and, you know, being able to combine teams and really smart people to accomplish a great task. And that conveyed well, to folks plus, we just proved the model we could show them, here are the financials, this is what's happening. i We flipped a bunch of properties before, essentially what we're doing is flipping except we're holding on to them and keeping the cash flow. So buy low rehab, create a difference, make an impact, and here are the actual dollars.    [00:07:10] Sam Wilson: Right. Okay, now, that gives a lot more color to it. Thank you for that. I mean, I think I think leveraging, leveraging your background is so so so important in this and it may not necessarily be that you have owned a dozen mobile home parks, but yet you've got the requisite experience that when you do take one down, it's, it's not a brand new experience for you.   [00:07:30] Samuel Sells: Right, that's, that's it, we learned a ton. And we've made a ton of mistakes. Now I know better. Like if I go back to my old self, I would stop myself based on examining you do and do it this way. So much better. And two is like go find a mentor coach, and I tried to find a mentor, 3d in 2018 and early 2018, I could not find a mentor who didn't want to charge me $35,000 even talk to me, right? And so now, you know, I offer coaching, a very, very reasonable price. And it's like, hey, let's start your own course, and see how you're gonna get there. And then don't do this. Don't do that. I mean, if you want to do it and learn the hard way, fine, that's on you. But I'm telling you don't do those things. Because that's going to cost you 150 grand, and you're never going to get back.    [00:08:19] Sam Wilson: Don't do that. There's your piece of advice. What are a couple of those things that come to mind initially that you saved me? And those were, those are some hard lessons we learned?   [00:08:30] Samuel Sells: Yeah, so twice, this has happened to me, both, you know, some time ago is, is allowing people who are supposedly experts in the field or in a location convinced me to something's worth more than I know it. Right. So once we pay too much for a property, way too much real property. Fortunately, there was no investors in that deal. But we did it as a favor to a person who had invested a lot with us. And it turned out that it was not at all what they said it was, and I lost money on that deal. I'm not afraid to say that I lost money on that deal. If you're investing with somebody who never lost money in any deal, either one, they're not telling you the truth or two, they just haven't been around long enough. Because real estate, if you spend too much money, you're going to lose money. So you make your money when you buy, particularly in value add and in this case, it was a place of its asset of our expertise. And we listen to him and we pay too much. Right. So the other time was, you know, same thing brokers, property managers, oh, this, this, this and this, and we went into the deal. We did our due diligence, they came back that this was not at all what was being advertised. And you know, we had gone into the deal. And I kept saying, Look, if we're going to go into this, I know this is going to be an issue. It's going to be an issue and we've got to make sure we get our earnest money back. And I allow them to talk me into signing a call on a track where we didn't get our earnest money back, and sure enough, we get in there with due to the diligence and the structure had so many issues, well over a million dollars worth of structural issues and I could see them when we were walking there. And denounce we walked away from that deal. I'm glad we didn't buy it. Somebody else bought the deal. Good luck. I hope they did the due diligence they're supposed to because we hired engineers to go there because I've been in construction long enough. I've built enough things. It's the foundation's fallen apart, and there's mold up in there and there's water we need the buildings, you're just a recipe for disaster. So somebody else's disaster sorry, good luck to them. Another syndicator bought that property. It's really pretty on the outside.   [00:10:36] Sam Wilson: It sounds like you lost your earnest money on that deal.   [00:10:40] Samuel Sells: We lost our earnest money we fought and got a bit of it back because it was so far from what they were telling us the sellers and everything else. And they just refused to work with us there where they weren't local. They were obviously in so they hate you know, look, I would have been embarrassed as a seller. If you came to me and said, Look at all these issues. I would have been embarrassed and would have worked them Nope. Yeah, they were. Yeah, they were not friendly.   [00:11:08] Sam Wilson:  Those are the painful lessons when you go oh, my gosh, my earnest money. There it goes. Like I could have had more fun just lighting a pile of money on fire and watching it burn.  [00:11:17] Samuel Sells: Yeah. And watching them for me. I should have bought new toilet seats for half of America with 150 grand right? That have been better, right? Throwing it down the drain?   [00:11:28] Sam Wilson:  Absolutely. Tell me when did you transition from a mobile home park, into an apartment community and why? [00:11:36] Samuel Sells: So in 2020, with all of COVID happened and everything slowed down. One of the things that happened was a supply chain for mobile homes, brand new mobile homes got stuck really, really bad. And so we had ordered a bunch of homes. And we just kept waiting and waiting and waiting. And they were creating homes for they're only building homes for the biggest mobile home park operators who are buying hundreds of homes at a time and they weren't even though we were way in front of them and the stack. We were too small, right? It's like, well, we want to buy 100 homes, but you got to deliver the first 20 Or we're not doing anything. Yes. And so that process killed us. So we had bought these properties. We've done a bunch of renovations but we had bought property when the tip to bring in all these new homes, and the prices were gone were skyrocketing, and death on mobile home parks became incredibly difficult. We had six refinances fall through with COVID and everything else that Marcus stopped all of our refinances just died and our lenders like well, we'll do apartments, we're not gonna do mobile home parks anymore. And so we shifted and 2021 Early in a t 2020. With buying apartment complexes. We bought one we saw really good turn on that one. Four months later, we bought another one. And it just kind of snowballed. And we bought eight apartment complex that said a year and two other properties. One of them was a property.   [00:13:02] Sam Wilson: That's amazing., And in that, you also transitioned and said, hey, you know what, I think we can do a self-storage development.   [00:13:09] Samuel Sells: Yeah, so we bought, we actually bought that in 2020 the storage development it was right next door to at a park a mobile home park. It was in Alaska, I was living in Alaska at the time, you have this huge space where there was no storage was right along the highway. And it was just an ideal location a guy had bought it had developed it into storage, like the ground and everything. And then his wife had gotten really sick, they moved out of Alaska and Alaska, you really need to be present. You got to understand that market is completely different. You're not going to gain appreciation if anyone comes says oh, we're gonna get you know, 2% per year appreciation, you're like wrong, that's not gonna happen. Cash flow is gonna be great. And so you're gonna bypass flow 100% And so we built this whole complex we moved I found another operator there who was local I could take over and he's gonna do a bang up job.    [00:14:01] Sam Wilson: Got it man, that's a lot of moving pieces, a lot of acquisitions in even a few different asset classes in a very short period of time. And it found it sounds like you found a way to efficiently scale into all of them, what have been or advice or what has been some of the keys you would say that you have used in order to do that.   [00:14:24] Samuel Sells: So mentorship coaching is vital. Finding somebody who can help you buy mobile home parks, the way that you create wealth and mobile home parks are the difference. It's very different. The numbers are different. Financing is different sourcing equity. The capital stack is different than it is in apartment complexes storage in general has really small returns. Now, because there are just so many entities and storage and the gravy train has ended, you can still find these little ones that are doing good. But mostly the gravy train has ended. Right. And so you need it to be a tie operator. And if you lie, if you love store and you really want to leave storage, you can make money in stores. It's just super, super difficult as a starting point. But we'll hold hearts you can start but you need to be present, you've got to be close to that place, or is going to be a disaster. Apartments is the easiest place to scale, it's the easiest place to secure debt, it's the easiest place to secure equity is the easiest place to transition from buying half a million-dollar property to buying a $ 10-million property. That gets easier as you get bigger. Right?   [00:15:34] Sam Wilson: That's really, really intriguing. So you guys have gone, you guys are still going long in apartments right now or as you said, at the beginning of the show you guys are more into the disposition side of your business.   [00:15:47] Samuel Sells: Yeah, so we're on the disposition side of our mobile home parks. We're selling up eight of the 10 mobile home parks were really focusing on some markets in Texas and Oklahoma. Oklahoma gets overlooked all the time. But the cash flow there is great. And so it's like why would you overlook this place college towns, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Stillwater and you get these places where they're Norman, Oklahoma, just financial, little gems that people overlook all the time. And so we love those markets, but you know, our focus really, Dallas Fort Worth, that's where we're buying right now. And one of the things that we also transition and very few syndicators ever make this transition is to move into working with institutional partners that close our last deal with an institutional partner what that is, it's not syndication, it's like the next level up, it's more complicated as more sophisticated, you've got to be able to operate at a certain level, but then they're gonna get all up in your gravy train, if you've been through the military, and you've entered maps, you know what I'm talking about. And I'm, I'll be polite here on the show, but there's a certain amount of sniffing that goes on and underwriting of you as a sponsor. I mean, they listen to all my podcasts or guys, why don't you listen to my podcasts? I mean, I think they're wonderful. My guests are fantastic. I'm an idiot. Don't listen to me, listen to these other people who are smart. But, you know, that model dramatically changes how your money operates. And so just from that single deal, will owe more than 12x Our money with our partners, institutional partners, and we can help other people know how to do that we can help place equity with everybody talks about family offices, family offices are wonderful but they're finicky, need to have a great relationship. And they promise you the world and they never ever deliver. I'm sure they do it just super difficult to get them to deliver institutions will deliver if you meet their criteria and a deal meets the criteria.    [00:17:43] Sam Wilson: I would love to have you come back on another episode. And we talk specifically about that, because there's so much nuance, I'm sure in to getting your first institutional capital partner to come on board and take down deals. I bet I bet we could have a conversation that you know, would go on quite quiet for a long time. That's absolutely cool. Sam, thanks for taking the time to come on the show today. I did have one maybe if you got 30 seconds, maybe about 30 seconds snippet here, if you can tell us what you mean when you say that you guys are creating wealth by making a difference?   [00:18:18] Samuel Sells: We have this concept of clean money. Whenever you get your money you invest. Let's say you buy bitcoin, where did that Bitcoin get produced? Right? Mafias, you know, these big drug cartels, they love bitcoins because they can produce it, they can mine it, they can sell it, it gets to come cash to them. And then they can use that cash to order a hit on a family that they don't like, right? So Did Jesus Buy Bitcoin from a cartel that mined it, and now he's using your money to kill people. You have no idea. You have no idea that your clean hard-earned money that you invested just got used for nefarious purposes, I believe and I know that we can use our money in a way that makes a difference. And you can tell when you invest in syndication when you invest in these deals, you know where your money is going. That's the difference. Right? And with us, we're buying ugly stuff and we're changing it and making a clean and safe and positive place for people to live and it's still affordable. We're not turning it into million-dollar little condos. We're turning it into, you know, homes that people can live and, and raise their kids.    [00:19:29] Sam Wilson: That's awesome. Absolutely. Love it. Sam. Thanks for taking the time to come on the show today. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you what is the best way to do that?   [00:19:36] Samuel Sells: Yeah, you can find me on Instagram @cleanmoneysam, you can find me on LinkedIn, Samuel Sells Facebook, please reach out to me. You can also send me an email at Sam@wildmountaincapital.com. And I would love to talk to you about what we do if you want to co-sponsor you want to learn more about how institutional and how to change or move into that space, or how to go from just raising capital to doing your own deals and being the lead sponsor. We're happy to have that discussion and help you make those transitions.   [00:20:05] Sam Wilson:  Fantastic. Thanks again, Sam. Appreciate it. Have a great rest of your day.    [00:20:09] Samuel Sells: Thanks, Sam. Appreciate it.

Today we hear the Combat Story of Derek Nadalini, who spent decades in the Army with both Ranger Battalion and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta, better known as The Unit. This is one of the most interesting interviews we've ever done. Derek deployed countless times beginning in Afghanistan in 2002 and conducted HVT operations, hostage rescue (including the rescue of Roy Hallums), ran low visibility and sniper operations, and eventually volunteered to execute singleton missions. After leaving the service, Derek went through a painful and long process to manage traumatic brain injury (TBI). Despite those challenges, he would go on to help sell the company Spatial Networks (earning what he aptly refers to as his “Business Ranger tab”), became a certified life and wellness coach providing pro bono support to Veterans, and is now the Director of Outreach and Development at MusiCorps, which is a music rehabilitation program that helps wounded warriors play music and recover their lives. Derek is easily one of the most accomplished people we've had on the podcast and I hope you enjoy this funny but also very personal experience and highs and lows of the elite as much as I did.

Mark speaks with Michael “Punky” Higgs and Dr. Martin Polanco of The Mission Within, a clinical program specializing in treating mTBI, PTSD, anxiety, and depression that has supported over 600 special operations veterans. After witnessing the transformative power of psychedelics, Michael and Martin became passionate about bringing the healing modalities to vets and their loved ones. Today, Commander Divine speaks with Michael “Punky” Higgs and Dr. Martin Polanco of The Mission Within, a 6-week psychedelic therapy program for Special Operations vets based in Mexico. In the episode, Michael and Martin share personal and scientific testimony of the impact psychedelics are having on our vets and their loved ones. Key Takeaways: Drugs to bring us together. Psychedelics like DMT act on a receptor that normally help us differentiate ourselves from others. The effect is we lose track of where we end and the rest of the world begins, which helps create greater cohesion and communion in our world. DMT is already within you. Since psychedelic compounds DMT and 5-MeO-DMT are neurotransmitters, our bodies seem to be wired to have these connected, unifying psychedelic experiences. The caustic cocktail. Michael shares his layered experience with injuries, childhood traumas, concussions, relationship traumas, and medications and the deadly combination they can create. Success worth celebrating. The Mission Within has treated over 600 special operations vets and over 80 veteran spouses with psychedelic clinical programming at their retreats in Mexico.

Sam and Emma host Jonah Furman of Labor Notes and author of the Who Gets The Bird? newsletter on SubStack to discuss the recent negotiations between rail workers, railroad companies, and the Biden administration. Then they are joined by investigative reporter Seth Harp to discuss his recent reporting surrounding the recent deaths and opioid abuse at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Emma and Sam first run through updates on the Fed's plan to discipline labor by tanking the economy into a recession, migrants file a class-action suit against DeSantis for his stunt, and DeSantis discusses his “Ultimate Solution.” Jonah Furman then joins as they get right into the three-year leadup to last Thursday's sudden climax of a potential rail strike in the US, walking through separate processes for labor organizing in the rail industry, the need for a 30-day cool-off period, and why Biden got involved, before parsing through the federal deal recommended and why it got so much pushback from the various railway unions. Next, he, Sam, and Emma explore how the rail industry came to be under different processes, with 19th Century unrest leading to the 1926 Railway Labor Act that works to keep the country's infrastructure moving, and leading up to the conditions we see today, where workers are expected to constantly be on call with no right to call out for an emergency and the workforce getting cut more and more while production increases. After a brief conversation on the role of monopoly and the leverage that the federal government could hold in this situation, they wrap up by tackling the state of their strike fund, and where this action is likely to head next. Emma is then joined by Seth Harp to get into the developing controversy coming out of the Fort Bragg military base, with a series of murders and executions piling up from 2020 through 2021 alongside increased overdoses and various drug possession and dealing charges all coming out of an institution that was supposedly the pinnacle of US Special Operations, with JSOC, Green Berets, and more all stationed there. They tackle the history of the US Military and Special Operations in mass drug trafficking, the incredible autonomy and power held by these unelected officials, and how this controversy encapsulates the myriad failures of the US Wars on Terror and Drugs. And in the Fun Half: Sam hosts Brad Polumbo, journalist and policy correspondent at the Foundation for Economic Education, on the immorality of student debt forgiveness, whether debt cancellation is debt transfer, the benefits of college, why daddy paying for college is okay but big brother doing so is bad, and how to grapple with being anti-regressive policy and anti-taxation. Sam and Emma also touch on Ronna McDaniel responding to accusations of Republican fear-mongering by pointing out how scary the world is, Matt DePerno on Michigan's potential abortion ban, and Stephen Crowder talks with a gay guy about how much women SUCK, plus, your IMs!
