November 16, 2020

Show: Season 2- Episode 10 (November 2020)
Host: Dan Mickle
Topic: Chat with Brent Magnussen - Author, Public Speaker, and Fmr. Army Engineer


 This a great episode with "Roger Up!" author, Brent Magnussen.  Dan and Brent discuss routines, goal setting, and Brent's new book.  There is also a great discussion about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu thrown in there for good measure.  Dan also got to confirm his morning ritual routine, an item that Brent stresses a lot in his talks and book.  As usual, there were a lot more topics the guys could cover but ran out of time.  Look from Brent coming back in Season 3 for a deeper dive on some of the topics covered.

Show: Season 2- Episode 09 (November 2020)
Host: Dan Mickle
Topic: Chat with Jay Hosack - George Mason Men's Volleyball Head Coach.


 In this episode, Dan has a conversation with Jay Hosack.  Jay and Dan's friendship goes back a few years and in this episode, they talk about the coaching ladder.  How to move up the coaching ranks and the interesting idea of SHOULD you move up in the coaching ranks.  It is great to hear how Jay made the decision to move from sunny California to across the country and Happy Valley.  There are also some great moments about key decisions in both Dan and Jays' coaching careers, like Jay getting the blessing from Penn State Head Coach, Mark Pavlik, to pursue a head coaching job.  This is a great informal chat between two friends.

Host: Dan Mickle
Topic: Chat with Jen Fry of JenFryTalks.com


 In this second episode of season two, Dan "sits" down and chats with his good friend Jen Fry.  Jen is currently a Ph.D. student at Michigan State in Geography.  She travels the country (and the world) to spread the word of social justice education.  In a nutshell, she gets you uncomfortable to make you better.  This is a very candid talk on a lot of topics.  It is always a great time catching up with Jen.

*Production Note #2 - There is a brief point in the podcast where the connection got a little crazy.  Sorry!

Host: Dan Mickle
Topic: Chat with Trevor Ragan of The Learner Lab (Season Premiere)


 In the Season 2 premiere, we sit down with Trevor Ragan from The Learner Lab.  I wanted to hear his story of going from the Midwest to Duke basketball to Train Ugly to the future.  Trevor has been on a lot of podcasts and the speaking circuit a lot recently, so I wanted to do something a little different and talk about him.  I had a great time and I think he enjoyed it as well.  Please check out all of his links below and give his great podcast a listen.
