Today, Adam takes a knee with former Yankees' head strength coach, Dana Cavalea. He shares his journey into baseball, from underperforming player to being part of the coaching staff that took the famed New York team to their 2009 championship. They talk about the childhood attraction of becoming an athlete but never thinking in tiers as you grow in order to achieve that dream. Adam shares his thoughts on people using their "best" as an excuse for their failures, and the "loser talk" many use to make up for falling short. Coach talks about the power of language, owning your opinion, and shares a story of when he realized getting a job and working hard paid off. Coach Dana's show, "Becoming a Champion" is available on YouTube and everywhere you listen to podcasts.
David Bahnsen joins the show today to talk about his new book Crisis of Responsibility. David and Adam talk about the financial crisis of 2008 and how that kicked off the idea for the book. They then talk about the presence of blame in our society and why the destruction of what David calls "mediating institutions" has led our country down the wrong path.
