This week, RX’D Radio welcomes the return of Pre-Sript’s Head Coach in Canada, Killian Hamilton, as well as Powerlifter and Real Estate Entrepreneur, Marcus Leoni. Jordan Shallow and his guests flex their brains in this episode as they talk philosophy and share book titles.
The trio discuss the morals and messages underlying the works and how they relate to the current state of society under quarantine. Rebellion as an expression of individual truth threads a common theme throughout, and the primal nature of humans at odds with the stressors of modern society exemplifies that theme. Contemplating life in the Serengeti, The Scorpion and the Frog, and musing on such controversial topics as religion, stoicism, naziism and the perpetuation of fear make this episode one you should definitely turn up!

This week, RX’D Radio and Jordan Shallow welcome Kevin Kegel to the podcast. Kevin is a New York local and owner of Ronin Athletic Acadamy. A trained second degree black belt in Japanese Jiujitsu, Kevin's athletic career has spanned competitive powerlifting to Spartan Racing. He now enjoys coaching both Crossfit and Spartan Racing.
Jordan and Kevin cover the topic of intelligent programming for conditioning in strength sports.
