Julian Subick is a writer, adventurer, and team member of the podcast. He is on today to show us what happens when we embrace the principles of the Rising Man Movement. By diving into this work just two years ago, Julian has transformed from a depressed, addicted boy to a confident, expressive man. He proves that these evolutions are accessible and attainable for EVERY MAN. We cover the importance of transparent sharing, why we are always comparing ourselves to others, and his experience fasting on the mountain.
