  1. Jocko,
    Podcast 66, 2:01:54, the relationship was a job not a person but the thoughts really resonated with me. You and echo talking about seeing it for what it is, not what you think it is or want it to be, definitely gave me peace of mind with ending the relationship and moving on! Going to start a new job in a couple weeks! Can’t wait to get after it!

  2. Jocko, you are the best. Been following you for some time. While H.R. McMaster was tactically brilliant in the battle of 73 Easting, what he is doing now is kinda tragic. I know it is a soldier’s place to take orders rather than question, but this massive ground war he is pushing for in Syria is a HUGE mistake that will inevitably cost American lives in a fight WITH AQ(?) God bless our troops. Godspeed.

    I wonder if you could give us your thoughts on a future podcast. A lot of guys are confused.
