Overview

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

Josh Smith - CEO of Montana Knife Company

Josh grew up in Lincoln, Montana on the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness. At the age of 11 Josh’s baseball coach, Rick Dunkerley, began teaching him how to make knives. In the very beginning, Josh would go to Rick’s shop where he learned to remove stock blades under the guidance of Rick. About a year later, Josh began putting a shop together at his home. Josh’s Dad gave him room to work in his equipment shop, and at the age of 12 Josh joined the American Bladesmith Society. Over the next few years Josh began forging and honing his craft. Josh turned 14 at the Eugene Oregon knife show where he met other incredible knife makers, all too willing to share their talents and knowledge with Josh. At 15 years old, Josh passed the Journeyman bladesmith test in Atlanta, Georgia at the Blade Show. Josh became the youngest bladesmith to ever pass this test. The Journeyman test is a two part process. A test blade must be forged and heat treated with the capabilities to chop a 1” rope in half, 2- 2x4’s in half and then still shave hair. Once the cutting tests are done the blade must be able to bend 90 degrees in a vise without breaking. After passing the performance test the maker must present 5 knives to a panel of Mastersmith Judges. Each knife is examined closely to ensure the knife is made to the highest standard of craftsmanship. At the Journeyman level a maker is not expected to show perfection but is expected to show a sufficient level of craftsmanship expected from a professional bladesmith. Josh continued to work on his craft and at the age of 19 he earned his Master Smith rating from the American Bladesmith Society. Josh was the youngest bladesmith to ever pass the Master Smith test. In 2002 Josh moved to Frenchtown, Montana where he now calls home. Josh and his wife Jessica live on a beautiful piece of property near the Clark Fork river. They have 3 daughters and 1 son that are active in sports. Josh coaches the youth tackle football team and a youth girls basketball team. The Smith kids raise cattle and hogs in 4H in addition to their sports. Jessica is the customer service and fulfillment manager for MKC.

Ian Cockburn - Death at The Hands of Your Government

Ian Cockburn is a survivor of one of the most harrowing health scandals in UK history. At just six years old Ian was battling childhood Leukemia, and during one of his final treatments was infected with Hepatitis C through a contaminated blood transfusion—a fallout from the UK's importation of unscreened blood products over two decades. His medical journey began with a dramatic evacuation to a UK airbase, then a fight against Hep-C, which threatened not only his life but his dream of serving his country. Ian opens up about the subsequent government and NHS cover-up that prolonged the crisis, the personal and professional hurdles he faced due to the infection, and how he overcame these challenges to live a fulfilling life with his family. Despite being barred from joining the British Army in his youth due to his medical history, Ian's unwavering determination, inspired by military podcasts, led him to reapply as a reservist and volunteer police officer, achieving success in both endeavors. The UK public inquiry's publication date is approaching, which Ian hopes will reveal the depths of the scandal's negligence which is still estimated to result in a death over four days. Ian shares his mission to raise awareness and ensure justice for the victims. https://www.infectedbloodinquiry.org.uk/ https://www.gov.uk/government/news/infected-blood-scandal-increased-financial-support-for-victims-confirmed https://www.hepctrust.org.uk/find-support/infected-blood-and-blood-products/infected-blood-inquiry/#:~:text=20%20May%202024.-,The%20history%20of%20the%20contaminated%20blood%20scandal,with%20on%2Dgoing%20health%20complications.

Fox, author of the groundbreaking book Hybrid Warfare: The Russian Approach to Strategic Competition and Conventional Military Conflict. Launching into a deep exploration of Russia's historical military strategies and its contemporary geopolitical maneuvers, Fox offers unparalleled insights into the Kremlin's objectives, its relentless pursuit in Ukraine, and the inner mechanics of its formidable military and intelligence apparatus. With Russia's economic tenacity and military prowess on full display, we dissect the nation's will to press on in the conflict, assess its strategic goals, and the potential ramifications on global stability. Curtis, a former Green Beret who mastered the Russian language and studied Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech before venturing into Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, provides a unique perspective on what Russia hopes to achieve and the lengths it may go to secure victory. This episode not only charts the course of Russia's military evolution from the Napoleonic era to its current engagement in Ukraine but also forecasts the possible outcomes of this conflict. Questions such as the impact of NATO's involvement, the financial sustainability of Russia's war machine, and the conditions for Ukrainian success are explored in depth.

What Would It Take To Change Your Mind

Food for thought, what does it take to change someone's mind? Why do we believe in the things that we do? Is it even possible to change someone's mind, or do they have to arrive at that point on their own? In the second half of the episode, I address two listener-submitted questions, both touching on the challenges of navigating relationships as life and environments shift around you. Up first is a couple that uprooted their lives for new opportunities, only to find one partner unhappy in the new situation and facing a lack of motivation and satisfaction. The second question is a shift in gears towards the dynamics of apologies within a long-term marriage. How can one effectively disengage after making amends, especially when it feels like forgiveness is just out of reach?

The Cusp of WW3, or Not...

Are we headed towards WW3? Is America about to crumble onto itself? Today, we are talking about an all too common narrative, that impending feeling that our world is teetering on the brink of chaos. With headlines screaming of global conflict and social upheaval, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and pessimistic about the future. But is this narrative of an impending World War III rooted in reality, or is it a byproduct of the relentless stream of negative information we're exposed to? In the second half of the episode, we shift gears to a more personal issue raised by a listener. After a decade of dedication to a full-time SWAT team, our listener has transitioned to an administrative role within his unit for the noble purpose of spending more time with his family. This change, while beneficial in many aspects, has led to a struggle with a sense of purpose and identity. The transition from an operational to a support role has yielded a professional void, despite the gains in work/life balance and personal well-being.

Welcome to Focal Point - Episode 001

Where do you go to consume your news? Can we even call it that anymore? Is it actually the "news," or is it editorialized information designed to elicit a specific response? One of my favorite quotes comes from a recent conversation with Sebastian Junger, paraphrasing: "The role of the media is not to tell you what to think, but to let you know what to think about." In a sea of media resources designed to only tell you how to think, we are going to try something different. Our goal is to have conversations about relevant topics where we offer our opinions based on experience and leave it up to the audience to decide what to think on their own. I am not interested in being right, I just want us all to collectively be "better."
