Welcome to Episode 14. This brutally honest conversation with former professional football player Robert Reed goes to the next level. First we talk in depth about his life as a kid and in football, especially with the University of Texas Longhorns. Then he opens up about his injuries, Martial Arts, Chronic Pain, his addiction to pain killers and thoughts of suicide. It is only with 100% of his approval that I can release this unedited raw conversation. #WarMachine
This episode has some very adult content, please listen with intent and respect.
