The RX’D Radio Docs are in the office! Jiunta and Shallow return for some trademark banter on the current state of affairs in North America. From COVID haircuts to politics and conspiracy theories, buckle in for some unfiltered and entertaining reflection on the wild and crazy year that is 2020.

After warming us up with a very uncomfortable trip to the barbershop, Shallow meanders into his recent interest in modern conspiracy theories. Including references to Jeffrey Epstein, Donald Sterling and systemic racism, outlandish theories behind the lineage of the Canadian Prime Minister and Trump as a secret super hero -- this episode goes everywhere you might not expect! Jiunta shares his personal experience living in California during this challenging time for the state, and the duo dive into the impact of COVID 19 on California in particular as well as how the upcoming election may impact the state of the virus in the broader United States.

PODCAST EPISODE #182: GOAL SETTING : YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG

Sep 09, 2020
 

SUBSCRIBE

 Jiunta and Shallow return this week to tackle the topic of goal setting as well as bring a uniquely interactive request to the audience. Starting off with a few thoughts on the strange times of COVID19, the boys jump into some podcast ranking experimentation with the listeners! Shallow requests your participation as he attempts to better understand how to hack the Itunes podcast rankings, comically auditing RX’D Radio reviews along the way. The duo then venture deep into what it really means to set and achieve a goal.

From the unwillingness to do the front-end work or reflect on failures, the question is posed as to whether or not the “goals” that an individual sets out to achieve are really his or her own. The Jordans walk us through barriers that they have faced in their own lives, daily habits they have changed to build a lifestyle for success, as well as some of Jiunta’s personal habits that keep his tunnel vision sharpened...

Today on RX’D Radio, Jordan Shallow and Killian Hamilton welcome Blaine McConnell to talk about the Olympic sport of Bobsledding. Blaine is a member of the USA National Bobsled team, a former Crossfit games athlete, and a family man currently residing in Iceland. He became a highly competitive athlete in an astoundingly short period of time, and is nothing less than the world’s strongest bobsledder!

Starting his career in football, Blaine picked up Crossfit to learn Olympic weightlifting and made his way to the Crossfit games with just 2 years of training. Blaine walks us through this journey in today’s conversation. After encouragement from friends to try out for the combine, Blaine’s impressive work ethic and freakish genetics landed him on the USA National Bobsled team in 2019, in his first year of training. Killian shares his own tale of the sled, and the two compare stories of their entries into the sport, the dangers of the sport,...

Aug 19, 2020
 

SUBSCRIBE

The boys are back! Our regularly scheduled hosts are reunited this week to talk about awareness, and moreover the utter lack of it within today’s society. Shallow recounts multiple stories of his upbringing through rough neighbourhoods in Windsor, ON, and how those experiences helped to shape and elevate his awareness in everyday life. The Jordans discuss the role that evolution has played in today’s world -- particularly in places like the California Bay Area -- where life is safe, easy, and where The Top-of-the-Food-Chain is awarded by the merits of one’s bank account as opposed to one’s physical aptitude. Jiunta shares his opinions on the role that technology has played in our modern-day state of complacency, as well as how growing up in cold climates fosters necessary mental fortitude. The boys break down the concept of pain as an emotion, a drive state and perception, and chat about how the ability to “embrace the suck”...

The conversation begins with the problem that Mark sees as the most common amongst his clients: new trainers tend to over-exaggerate both the successes of those around them as well as those of the mentors to whom they compare themselves. The effect of social media on the growth of the industry is highlighted and leads Mark to discuss the importance of defining an individual’s personal identity, passions, and goals for business and life in order to drive his or her success. Mark walks us through the “aha” moment in his career that changed his perspective to...
