Burn the Ships

A weekly Society, Culture and Personal Journals podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
Burn the Ships is a podcast for dreamers who want to live more courageously and have more fun doing it. I'm interviewing the most hilarious, courageous, and inspiring people I can find to start conversations that help us all move down the road.

In 711AD, Tariq ibn Ziyad led 7,000 soldiers across the water from Northern Africa to attack the Visigoths in modern-day Spain. 100,000 enemy soliders waited for their arrival, ready to destroy them. Tariq's men began to retreat when their general gave one of the greatest commands of all time.

"Burn the ships."

Their only escape route engulfed in flames, the men turned towards their enemy and, against all odds, slaughtered the opposition and established a new kingdom that would last for the next 800 years.

In a world where most of us won't lead naval brigades to conquer other nations, what does it mean to be courageous? How do we make the most of this one life we each get to live?
