  • Ryan, Mountain Up, Sits Down With J.D. & Kat to tell "Tales From the Barstool".

    Tonight, Kat and I interview Ryan Hunt, a retired veteran, serial entrepreneur, THE Pando Commando and habitual shit stirrer.
    Hear stories of the younger, dumber years as a stupid butter bar... ugh, officers. Find out nothing about his gazillion businesses he has his hands in because we don't do that here.
    Tonight's cocktail is the Manhattan:
    Ingredients: 2 oz Whisky, 3/4 oz Sweet red vermouth, Dash Angostura bitters, Maraschino cherry (Garnish)
    Preparation: Stirred over ice, strained into a chilled glass, garnished, and served straight up.
    As always, we can't bring you this shit show without our awesome sponsors:
    The Legion of Loan Officers
    Gunner Grey Furniture Fusion
    Soldier Girl Coffee Company
    Warhorse Legacy Foundation, Inc.
