About the episode:

Today’s episode is heavy on the inner work as I interview my friend Scott McGee. A professional good guy, father, and host of the Sisu Way podcast. You may remember him from his days as host of the Wodcast podcast.

We discussed some of the core tenets of the Sisu Way: Strength is a choice, vulnerability is strength, and health is wealth.

This episode has some great stories to highlight practical approaches to turning your mind from a parasite into a tool that works for you, and how to recalibrate yourself in moments of stress.

Listen to Scott’s full story on the podcast.
