In This Episode:
Things get real as Tyler and Mike sit down and share a couple of hours with Jon Gossett. Jon is doing the work that he’s supposed to be doing, fighting to save lives and raise awareness of suicide in his home state of Utah and beyond. It’s sad work but it’s his mission and he is committed to doing whatever it takes to help people through hard times. Through the work of the Life’s Worth Living Foundation (that he founded after a sleepless night), Jon’s team and community are spreading the important message to anyone that will listen that you can get through anything and that this world is not better without you in it. Jon’s passion is contagious, so much so that the guys have their calendars marked for the end of April 2023 to join Jon’s group in their annual Walk to Wendover. Who’s in?
