Johnny Elsasser is a former Special Operations US Army Ranger with four combat tours between Iraq, and Afghanistan and another five years of protecting the US Ambassador to Iraq in Baghdad. Johnny has seen the field of Masculinity through extreme alpha perspectives and knows the trials and tribulations of the toughest men and how they deal with that on a day-to-day basis.

In the episode, Johnny talks about his journey as a US Army Ranger from the time he joined and the excruciating and rigorous training he went through, and how he transitioned to becoming a performance and leadership coach. He expresses his understanding of masculinity, what it means, and some interesting take on how to define it for oneself.
