Crazy Good Turns is a new podcast that aims to celebrate people who do good turns for other people. Their first episode profiles Marine veteran Jake Wood and Team Rubicon, a veterans organization that deploys military veterans as first responders to the world’s disaster zones.
Founded in response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the organization has two aims: to give aid to those in need and allow veterans to experience a sense of mission and purpose that echoes their military careers.
In this episode, Wood describes his experiences in college football, how Pat Tillman inspired him to enlist and how the memory of his fellow Marine Clay Hunt inspires and motivates the organization’s mission. It’s a compelling listen and worth learning about in Jake’s own words.
You can listen to the program on the Crazy Good Turns website or find the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher. The program promises more military stories in upcoming episodes as they explore the stories of people who sacrifice for others.
