16 - Veteran, Father, Businessman, and Motivator | My Conversation with Ben Killoy

In this episode of The Neutral Ground Podcast, I speak with veteran Ben Killoy, host of two incredibly important podcasts: The Military Veteran Dad podcast, and The Business of Fatherhood podcast. Ben and I talk about the end of the Afghanistan War; we discuss veteran mental health and the problems with finding purpose out of the military; and, we discuss the importance of fatherhood. We even throw in a bit about Plato's allegory of the cave--and you know how much I love talking about Plato, or anything for that matter. Ben tells us his story of moving from existential crisis to podcast host and now to professional speaker. Ben helps fathers rediscover their purpose in the home and offers some valuable insights into how we can get there.
