This has to be the most fun episode I have ever recorded, and you will hear why. Jillian (who was introduced to me by the amazing Tami Holzman, episode #38) laughs more than any guest I have had on. She started off as a singer on cruise ships, worked her way up in business before asking her then-boss for his job when he retired. Now she is the CEO and founder of APR which oversees over $1 Billion in advertising production a year. She happened to learn some tricks along the way and you will discover how you can change the course of your life and the wide variety of things you can find humorous.
Motivated by a one-year sober challenge I imposed upon myself, I sat down with my homie Wil to discuss his road to potential without the drank. Wil transformed substance abuse, violent trauma, and mental health problems into becoming a martial arts teacher, passionate writer and a loving husband.

This was recorded July 2016 during my 4th and final season as a Wildland Firefighter. We got called to a fire that was quickly spreading near the border of Mexico in Southern Arizona. After being flown into a safe location, we started to engage the fire and I went up a ravine to see what kind of work would be needed to put the fire out. You will hear me call in a helicopter to do a water bucket drop and my crew member and I shooting the shit before hiking out of the canyon.
