This freight-train episode dives into the most important (and overlooked) issues impacting Americans nationwide–spanning movies, sports and music. Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) leverages his unique military, political and media experience to dissect the underreported national security and leadership elements of the Mueller Report, the attacks in Sri Lanka, Trump’s war with the media, the opioid crisis and more. It’s a unique look at the social and political elements of the NHL and NBA Playoffs, the “Camouflage Wave” of veterans running for elected office, and the history of 420 (the unofficial holiday of marijuana).
Rieckhoff welcomes a new important, iconic, inspiring guest that shaped America and is shaping our future.

Berg is also working on a documentary with and about Rhianna, and talks about his first car, how he created movie and television phenomenons like Friday Night Lights, Entourage, Deep Water Horizon, Patriots Day, Lone Survivor and the Leftovers.
