BTP | Colin O'Brady | 12 HOUR WALK | NYT Best-Selling Author The Protectors Podcast ™ Presents Colin O’Brady.  Colin is a 10X World-Record Holder, NYT Best-Selling Author, and author of the 12 HOUR WALK.   We talk about the walk, how it came to be, and a ton more.  I recently completed the 12 HOUR WALK and it really changed my perspective on a lot of things, it was much needed!  Make sure to check out the book and try the walk. PS:  I asked Colin to take part in the MURPH as part of The Protectors Podcast (we are an official host).  Be cool if he does it with us (virtually).  Some of Colin’s Adventures:  50 High Points; In the summer of 2018, Colin took on the 50 US High Points. After a 13,000 mile journey in 21 days, 9 hours, and 48 minutes he completed the 50 high points challenge, setting a new world record. In the last 7 days of the project alone, in an astonishing final push, Colin climbed the 7 highest peaks in the lower 48 US states, totaling over 100 trail miles and over 50,000 feet of elevation gain. Along the way, Colin invited others to join him at their state’s high point and be part of what he called the “Forrest Gump effect”.Greenland Crossing; Just weeks after setting the new 50HP world record, Colin set off on a training expedition across Greenland to further prepare his mind and body for his approaching Antarctic journey. Pulling a 250 lb sled in subzero temperatures across hundreds of miles of rough glacial terrain, he gained critical experience traversing the world’s largest island, over 400 miles from East to West in the course of 28 days.The Impossible Row; For the month of December 2019, Colin teamed up with Captain Fiann Paul and a crew of four other rowers in partnership with Discovery to attempt the world’s first completely human powered ocean row across Drake Passage - from the Southern tip of South America to Antarctica. Drake passage has a reputation of being the roughest, coldest, and iciest passageway on the planet. Having never rowed a boat before, Colin endured a mind over matter mission requiring courage, grit, teamwork, and stamina to complete the voyage in 12 days landing on the frozen continent on Christmas Day.Support the show
#366 | Christopher Strom | Discussion on Policing | Author & Retired NYPD The Protectors Podcast ™ Presents Christopher Strom.  Retired NYPD & Author.  Full podcast out on every major podcast platform.  We talk about: The NYPD & Police losing numbers at an alarming rate, advice for those entering the LEO field, learning how to talk to the community, and Chris’ book BROOKLYN TO BAGHDAD.  About the book: Brooklyn to Baghdad is the true story of a retired NYPD intelligence sergeant applying his street-cop tactics and interrogation skills against a lethal insurgency that had infected Iraq. A group of retired Special Forces soldiers and law enforcement experts came together to form the counterinsurgency group codenamed &quot;Phoenix Team.&quot; Exposing the corruption of both the Iraqi and US governments, the team faced serious setbacks and challenges. Brooklyn to Baghdad shows the effectiveness of the Phoenix Team, their ability to process forensic evidence and human intelligence gleaned through interrogations at the point of capture to provide direct targeting for follow-on missions. This memoir also illustrates the politics of Washington, DC, and the US Army in the war-fighting effort, which continually hampered complete success while simultaneously preserving career aspirations. Throughout are many humorous and emotional anecdotes that reveal the men behind the missions and the toll the theater of war takes on real human livesSupport the show

BTP | Joshua Appel | Rescue of the Lone Survivor | What is the MURPH? | Part 2 PART 2BECOMING THE PROTAGONIST. Dr. Joshua Appel recalls his journey to becoming an elite PJ in the Air Force, his path to becoming an ER doctor, his connection to the Murph Challenge, and the incredible rescue of Lone Survivor Marcus Lutrell. About Josh: Appel served active duty from 1994-99 as a pararescue specialist in emergency medical tactics, as well as combat and survival skills, continuing on with the United States Air Force Combat Search and Rescue Squadron as a reservist throughout medical school. The rescue team that recovered the lone survivor, Marcus Luttrell, was led by Appel.Josh and the MURPH (from the Fit at Midlife site): Hero WOD’s are usually programmed and set up in gyms, and it is a great opportunity to commemorate these heroes to instill and retell the stories of heroism and sacrifice. Murph was first registered on CrossFit’s Main Site on August 18th, 2005. No one can tell when exactly it became a tradition for gyms to program Murph on Memorial Day. But in 2007, Josh Appel, an Air Force pararescue jumper who headed the team that jumped to save LT. Murphy’s team, took the concept to his gym, Albany CrossFit, and the rest of the CrossFit community did the same. Ten years later, it’s an honorable tradition for gyms to close on Memorial Day, working only Murph as their workout, often accompanied by a barbecue or other community bonding event. #lonesurvivor #murphchallenge #becomingtheprotagonistSupport the show

#361 | Elle Rueger | SOLEDIER SOCKS Elle Rueger created SOLEDIER SOCKS to give back.  She joined the show recently to talk about creating a small business, partnering with non-profits, creating a Made in the USA sock, and a ton more.  Look for SOLEDIER SOCKS partnering up with Chive Charities soon! From Their Site: Our Story, In 2010, while our friend Tommy was deployed to Afghanistan, we sent him several care packages filled with toiletries, protein bars, and the most requested item: SOCKS! Tommy safely returned, thanked us for the socks, and explained how the condition of his feet improved almost immediately while on long, multi-day missions! It was in that moment the idea of SOLEDIER SOCKS was born - sell a pair of socks, donate a pair to our troops!....In partnership with a few nonprofits supporting military and veteran communities, we found more opportunities to raise awareness and give back! We were inspired to create our Stand For a Cause line which has donated approximately $20,000 to 9 military nonprofits.Support the show
