21-We Reboot Our Minds and Stop Soldier Suicide



This episode we speak with a former Navy SEAL who offers us a chance to reboot our minds and UN-f@&k ourselves. Next, we say “STOP” to veterans committing suicide, by talking to a brewer who has made a red, white and blue beer that helps combat these tragic losses. Finally, in a Beer Dome first, double your pleasure, double your fun! We do a curbside order of a stout and porter. That, and our usual craic in this episode of Life In 16oz…
