The Mike Drop podcast is hosted by former Navy SEAL, Mike Ritland. It is a not so politically correct discussion of wide ranging topics that span from government, politics and war to health and fitness, from guns and survival skills to food and nutrition with music, BBQ and a touch of everything else in between. This is THE platform that is completely raw, totally unfiltered and in your face, while still intellectually sound with good intuitive dialogue between A-holes that know what they’re talking about.

Intense topics with humor mixed in
Mike puts on a great podcast with some unique topics and guests. I am always impressed how well Mike structures the questions to ensure compelling dialogue. I appreciate his humor and the transparency of him and his guests. It makes for a "real" experience on my end.
Mike Drop is the kind of podcast you can rely on to be real and filled with great direction and purpose. Mike Ritland has a voice quality that I never tire of hearing. He does a great job of researching each guest, and composing the interview with a structure that makes each guest’s story come to life in a full way. I also appreciate that the audio quality itself is consistently clear and at a consistent volume.
