OCD – 11 – Troy Rathke, The Return, The Journey’s Beginning.

What’s going on folks? This is Off Colored Discussions and this week on the podcast…

Troy Rathke returns to tell the story of the adventure the will shape the idea for what he is going to accomplish with his non-profit and yearly retreat of Vision Quest West: A Mission to Live. This adventure is so massive, and we don’t want to cut anything out, that it will cover multiple episodes. This is part 1. Part 2 will be next week. Part 3 and a possible 4 will be sometime in the future. It is truly awesome and we cannot express enough gratitude for being able to be the ones that get to share the story. He is inspiring and we are honored to be able to call him a friend.


The song for the week: Not Alone by Doc Todd ft. Bingx.

If you don’t know, Doc Todd is a veteran Navy Combat medic that by using hip-hop, he is trying to inspire other vets to find purpose through the creative arts. He also served with Troy, and I could not think of a better person to be featured on this episode than him. You can find Doc’s links below to his music, as well as the CNN interview. He’s been on multiple podcasts such as Vantage Point, the podcast for the Department of the US Veteran Affairs. We are honored to feature his song.

Beer of the Week: Able Ebenezer’s Victory.

We couldn’t think of a more fitting beer than Victory nor Defeat from New Hampshire’s own Able Ebenezer Brewing Co. A delicious IPA that is smooth, rich, and not bitter. If you’re in Merrimack NH, look them up and try a flight of their craft beer. Tell them you heard about it on the podcast.
