Very special guest this episode, Lou Moreira joins us, who is training to be on the 2018 U.S. Olympic bobsled team. Lou has a very interesting background, not only serving as a combat vet with the 82nd Airborne, but he was also an All-American hurdler and NPC‘s 2014 Mr. Texas, so to call Lou a versatile athlete is an understatement. We get into different techniques that helped Lou to reach his potential as an athlete, his training regimen, diet, and more. Lou pursuing this goal has been a giant sacrifice for his family as he tries to make this happen while putting his career outside of athletics on hold, so he has a GoFundMe up and can really use your support. Brandon Webb and I also cover a lot of ground including the lawsuit against two psychologists who helped develop the post-9/11 enhanced interrogation program. From there we discuss Guantanamo Bay, as well as government waste. We also send our condolences to friend of the show Marty Skovlund Jr., after learning about the passing of his father from ALS. Marty’s dad was a veteran, and Marty’s helped us in pushing out some excellent content over the years, we are wishing the best for him and his family during this very hard time.
