Aaron Hale is without a doubt one of the most inspirational people we have ever hosted on the podcast. To give you some perspective, consider that Aaron served in the Navy but felt like he needed to contribute more; he chose to move over to the Army specifically to become an Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) tech, those soldiers we know as the bomb squad guys.

While deployed in Afghanistan, Aaron was clearing an IED when a second device went off under his feet, kicking him into the air, causing instant blindness, blowing his ear drums, and slicing him with shrapnel, all without a bomb suit on! His first thought? “Man, so that's what being blown up feels like…”

Even just this brief insight into Aaron’s mindset lets us begin to understand how this man has overcome unfathomable circumstances. “No” is not a word in Aaron’s vocabulary. Despite being blind and almost completely deaf, Aaron has remained positive and ready to take on new challenges including kayaking, mountain climbing, hunting, and marathon running.

Listening to Aaron’s hilarious takes on being a new dad to twins, a blind chef, and life in general make us realize what we may consider problems are more like minor inconveniences. We dare you to listen to Aaron in between his jokes and not have your own outlook on life challenged.
