Aggregated reviews for Mike Drop

The Mike Drop podcast is hosted by former Navy SEAL, Mike Ritland. It is a not so politically correct discussion of wide ranging topics that span from government, politics and war to health and fitness, from guns and survival skills to food and nutrition with music, BBQ and a touch of everything else in between. This is THE platform that is completely raw, totally unfiltered and in your face, while still intellectually sound with good intuitive dialogue between A-holes that know what they’re talking about.

Great podcast!   (5/5)

I’ve been listening to the TNQ podcast and have been looking for another one that kind of hit on the same kind of topics. Found it! Can’t wait to go back and listen to some of the earlier ones now

I’m Addicted   (5/5)

Mike is excellent at drawing out difficult stories from the soldiers he interviews. This is first hand history being shared. Thank you and the hero’s for sharing with us.

Do yourself a favor   (5/5)

Listen! Entertaining, interesting and I learn a lot. Very eye opening to things in the world that most people aren’t aware of.

Check it out!   (5/5)

This is the first podcast I’ve ever heard. Mike’s interview with Lara Logan was so outstanding that I had to check it out. If someone had told me that I would ever subscribe to a podcast, I would have laughed. Now I am a regular listener and huge fan.

One of the best!   (5/5)

Mike has one of the most dynamic and thorough styles of interviewing on the market today. My new favorite podcast. I love how Mike doesn’t back down from disagreements and move on - he takes them head on and works it out in a calm and collected manner. Keep keeping ass!

Great Podcast!   (5/5)

This podcast has some of the most interesting guests who come on. Iv’e been burning through each episode since I first saw Vigilance Elites YouTube upload Navy SEALs Discuss Life During the Pandemic. Thanks for all the great listens!

Mike is the cutest boy in school   (5/5)

Yup it’s true

Great Podcast   (5/5)

Mike Drop is one of my favorite podcasts. I look forward to each episode. I have read Mike's book and enjoy the wit and banter on his podcast. Along with Jocko Podcast, Mike Drop is my favorite. Dogs, fitness, humor, BBQ, drinks, stories: they're all included. Well worth the listen. Now off to "choke myself"!

Informative and incredibly entertaining   (5/5)

If you are a dog person, or if you support our Dept. of Defense, Border Patrol, or even if you are just concerned about our environment or nutrition, this podcast has information for you. The diversity of personalities and history of the people Mike interviews, and his ability to research subject matter and then use the information to draw out his guests, is uniquely remarkable. I have been jumping around other podcasters, not really settling on one, until I ran across Mike Drop. I dropped anchor here, and only listen to other podcasts when I’m waiting for another Mike Drop to ... drop.

Awesome Podcast   (2/5)

Mike does a great job guiding the discussion in a way that is fun, entertaining and educational. I never get bored and appreciate the professionalism, insight and topics discussed every episode.

Kick ass   (5/5)

Refreshing, informative, and interesting interviews with word class guests. Mike is a great interviewer and nothing is off limits. My favorite podcast by far. Keep it up Mike.

Awesome podcast   (5/5)

Mike is a really good interviewer. Modesty to the max and you can tell he really wants to hear the interviewees story. Much respect and thanks as this podcast helps me in tougher times and inspires me as well.

Are you doing coke instead of eating ribs   (5/5)

Why do you guys talk so fast on the downloaded episodes recently? Is it the platform or the Peruvian snowflake

Best podcast out there period   (5/5)

Mike Drop is my go to podcast when I’m working out, working in the yard or just have a long drive. Mike always books interesting guests and has a unique and informative way of interviewing them. I’m sure he was one hell of a Navy SEAL but this dude can run a podcast too. Thanks for the hours of entertainment Mike, keep doing what you do.

Awesome   (5/5)

Interview with Will Chesney was excellent, book is on the way and subscribed to the show.

Best   (5/5)

One of the best their is!

Best Out There!   (5/5)

Subscribe or as Mike says “Choke Yourself”! I listen to a ton of podcasts and Mike is one of, if not the best interviewers out there. He challenges his guests and always brings out deep and meaningful thoughts and conversations. Highly recommend! You won’t be disappointed.

Awesome   (5/5)

Leaving this review because mike told me to. Awesome podcast

To the point, no nonsense   (5/5)

I must say that political correctness is not what Mike is about, and that is fine with me. I have mix of 18 years as a Marine, Army National Guardsmen and LEO. I came to US as 14 year old immigrant in 1989., so I have seen the other side of the coin myself. This show leaves no stone unturned and paints a clear picture of today’s America and its issues that Main Street bias media will not touch. The truth and facts won’t sell or make huge publicity splash, so they do not get reported. Take it or leave it, use salt if needed - Mike Ritland is on point, and so are many of his guests.

Epic Guests w/ EPIC LIFE EXPERIENCE!!!   (5/5)

The list of guests that Mike has had on his show have are individuals who've done and seen some serious s*** in their day! From Jay Dobyns (author of No Angel) to Will Chesney (DEVGRU dog handler on the OBL raid), the experiences these people have lived through and are able to talk about makes this podcast one of the most fascinating and intriguing to listen to! I also watch on YouTube and you should too!

Better than JRE   (5/5)

Don’t get me wrong, I still love the JRE podcast, but I find I listen to almost every Mike Drop podcast ever made. Mike Drop topics hit home, his guests are always outstanding & the camaraderie brings me back 15 years. Thank you for the fantastic discussions, your passion for dogs & the great humor. Semper Fi. 🇺🇸

I stumbled across this on accident, and I couldn’t be happier!! I’ve listened to dozens and dozens of different podcasts on all subjects, and this is the best in my opinion.

No Ordinary Dog Podcast   (5/5)

Wow. Thank you for brining such an amazing guy on the podcast. I don’t have words. Love your podcasts thank you for everything you do! I follow it all

Best interviewer ever hands down.   (5/5)

Mike has everything from funny stories to emotional moments and deep questions. Great guest. He really does his research on people he’s having on. Always pumped to see him drop new episodes. Best podcast out there. If you think otherwise go choke yourself.

Mike Drop   (5/5)

Great podcast!

Best Podcast out.   (5/5)

The quality of guest and ability to interview of Mike is what sets it apart. Great lessons and stories that everyone can learn from. The reality of the conversations and lack of PC filters makes for a podcast unlike any other.

Mike is a boss   (5/5)

5 stars - no brainer. Huge fan of what you’ve done, Mike. I’ve been listening since the beginning and you have a natural talent for interviewing and sharing stories. Thank you for the entertainment and insight. Keep up the good work! Gonna go choke myself.

One of the best!   (5/5)

Seriously one of my favorite podcasts out there! Listen to every episode, motivating and informational! Choke your self!

Right question right time   (5/5)

There is at least a hand full of times in most podcasts that I’m thinking of a follow up question that I would like to ask, and next thing I know Mike is asking that exact question I was thinking of.

Awesome Show   (5/5)

Mike is an amazing interviewer. Patient, sensitive, caring...but always on point. Does his homework and is always ready to conduct intelligent, focused interviews that always draw out the real personality (or agenda) of his guests. I don’t always agree with Mike, but what I do agree with is his forthright statement of his own matter whether those opinions are “politically correct” or not. I doubt anyone from today’s intersectional outrage culture will enjoy this podcast...but if you are open to considering issues from multiple divergent opinions, you will always find Mike ready to defend his well considered opinions based on personal experience and study. And of course, who can really resist someone who so deeply cares for and loves dogs. If you want to hear a master interviewer at work, listen to his 3 hour plus deep dive engagement with Will Chesney. Will was Cairo’s dog handler on the Bin Laden raid. In telling Cairo’s story, step by step, Mike patiently draws Will’s own story out of a man who has given nearly his last full measure. Even if you hate the topic and/or the podcast, you will learn more about how to conduct a relentlessly patient interview that is always on point. It is an absolute must listen.

Excellent   (5/5)

Mike thank you for fighting for our country then and now. Blessings to you both! Lara I usually never curse but from one woman to another, I love your heart and what you stand for and that you are one BADA$$ woman!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Fantastic Podcast Coming From a Civilian A-Hole!   (5/5)

Just recently started listening to this podcast in video form on YouTube to get some insight about war coming from the people who’ve been there, done that, since I am just one of those civilian a-holes as Mike likes to say lol. These guys don’t sugarcoat anything and the things these guys have gone through is amazing in one sense, but they also tell you how not-so-amazing things can be at the same time, so you get some great insight. Love that Mike is a dog guy too and has a great appreciation for dogs. Check out the podcast, you won’t regret it! - Thomas

Mike is a great interviewer   (5/5)

I’ve listened to a bunch of Mike’s interviews and he really is good at it. He knows how to connect the military folks to the civilian world especially when it comes to dealing with acronyms, etc. and he structure of questions shows he does his research ahead of time. I’m definitely a fan. I’ve discovered a whole new list of books that I want to now read. His podcast is perfect for working long days indoors/outdoors or taking long drives.

I am OBSESSED!   (5/5)

My husband, who spent 23 years in the Air Force but is also a Navy Seal in spirit, got me hooked on Mike Ritland’s Mike Drop podcast, and I listen every available moment. He is so respectful, and has the enviable talent of being able to ask a question and then allow his subject to answer thoroughly, without interruption. I love the variety of people he has on, and I highly recommend this podcast to anyone and everyone! ❤️💙🇺🇸

The Eddie Gallagher piece is great   (5/5)

Forget the noise and the politics and listen to the story from the man himself. Great interview questions keep this first hand account on track and on target.

Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself   (5/5)

Mike Drop is hands down the best podcast available right now. Mr. Ritland puts on a master class in the art of interviewing his guests and giving them the space to tell their story. Solid humor, always informative, constantly thought provoking. is also an incredible resource. Going to have a Trikos attack Newfie in no time.

Fantastic - Try One Episode DO IT   (5/5)

You can tell Mike is prepared for each guest and isn’t winging it. Intros are awesome, lightning round is fun, love how the podcast is conversational and not a list of questions. Mike has the natural talent to interview and a sexy radio voice. Yeah, I said sexy. THANK YOU FOR HAVING EDDIE GALLAGHER ON THE SHOW!

The way podcasts should be!   (5/5)

Mike does podcasting correctly. I hate how podcast hosts interview people and then partially the way through the conversation, they say they’re done and that they hope the guest can come back sometime to continue the conversation because the times up. WTH! Who says a podcast has to stop at 1hr. Mike does it right and let’s his guests talk. They cover everything. Nothing is held back. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 3 hour podcast. I love this. Keep it up Mike. Don’t change a thing!

#1 Podcast out there   (5/5)

Mike Drop is the only Podcast that I listen to religiously. I catch every episode. Keep up the good work.

Ruben   (5/5)

I wanna say thank you for everything you did and everything you and Rut did but when he said it takes time for results it’s not over night I’ve been working hard on changing my life and these podcasts help this one and TNQ your the roll models I need in my life thank you soo much.! I’m barley hearing this one because I’m listening to in order and I love all your guys content thank you

My must go to podcast!   (5/5)

I was watching mike drop on YouTube for a while and am a big fan. I’m now using the podcast app. Mike drop is the only podcast I rush to listen to immediately when i get the notification of a new episode. Mike has a natural ability to interview and he really pulls a lot of information out of the guest that you normally don’t hear anywhere else. I have listened to some of his guest on joe Rogan and other podcasts, but the stories and details that Mike is able to get from his guests goes far beyond any other podcaster. I frequently refer people to Mike’s podcasts for factual information that he was able to get from guests that nobody else has. And while I love the veteran guests and some of the less talked about people who have served and have amazing stories, Mike also does a great job diversifying the podcast with other guests that aren’t veterans. He does an incredible job researching every guest and it shows. The questions he asked and his ability to deep dive into topics with his guests because he has done extensive research on them, their field and their background makes the interview SOOOO MUCH BETTER than other podcasts like Rogan where we don’t really know much about the guest and doesn’t really know the right questions to ask. Anyway, Mike Drop is my favorite podcast by far. I literally got into Origin Labs products from listening to this podcast. When Mike said they wanted to just let him do his thing and they didn’t have any rules or stipulations to go along with their sponsorship, I had to check them out! I really HATE companies using their dollars as a way to push their own agenda and stifle freedom, and the fact that Origin lets Mike do the podcast the way he wants and supports him 100% on that, is a big deal to me. I’m a big fan now of Origin’s Molk and Krill Oil. I buy it every months now... and when I need to buy some new jeans, I’m going to Origin for them. Great company and thank you Mike for exposing me to them!!! Cheers!!!

Outstanding   (5/5)

Carry on!

Favorite Podcast   (5/5)

My only complaint is that the episodes don’t come frequently but when they do, its quality veteran guests that you actually want to hear. Mike’s interviewing skills and relatability is unlike any other podcaster. His style is patriotic, authentic, sincere, open-minded, and straight-forward, all the makings for an awesome listen.

Amazing   (5/5)


Great   (1/5)

Way to go Mike!

On Point   (5/5)

Phenomenal podcast that explores the good, the bad, the ugly.

Great podcast   (5/5)

This is truly a spectacular podcast. Not only is Mike funny but you can tell he does his research before the interview and always asks deep questions that I am interested in learning more about the topic. I highly recommend it.

Epic   (5/5)

Mike is very talented and a natural. He keeps his listeners engaged and eager for the next podcast. This is a must for all you veterans out there... keep pumping them out Mike- your the man!

Best Podcast around   (5/5)

Mike Rutland is an awesome interviewer. He asks his guests the best open ended questions to get the most out of the interview. Once you start listening you’ll want to listen to all in the library.

Best podcast   (5/5)

In a world where opinions are bought and paid for, this podcast is the exception and the standard that all podcasts should strive to achieve. Thank you, Mike Ritland for keeping it real and keeping it honest. You always have an interesting, diverse, and wonderful group of guests who are just as honest and open as you are. Please keep doing what you’re doing, it’s only going to keep getting better. Much love and continued support and most importantly sir, thank you for your service.

Great podcast   (5/5)

Always interesting and authentic


Best. Podcast. Ever. Mike Ritland is one of the best interviewers around. Thoroughly enjoyable and also much to be learned here. Choke yourself if you don’t listen to this podcast! ;)

Subscriber   (5/5)

Mike Ritland is the man. Currently reading his book, “Trident K-9 Warriors” and highly recommend it. I enjoy his tough questions and how he doesn’t mind sharing different view points from the guests who come on.

Good stuff   (5/5)

Just listened to 2 podcasts where the titles interested me. Loved it.

Excellent content   (5/5)

Love this podcast. Just came across it and I’m hooked.

So many “professionals” could learn from this PROFESSIONAL   (5/5)

I really like listening to Mike. Any and all topics are discussed in a very conversational way. He has a way to put his guests at ease and open them up allowing them to talk about their experiences and the things they have done. He is in my opinion one of the best interviewers I have listened to.

Chief Beck   (5/5)

Currently listening to the interview with Chief Beck. Impressed with Mike’s patience! I completely agree with Mike’s perspective of both sides playing a part in finding a solution. People can be kinder and more thoughtful, while others can learn to be more thick skinned and less willing to be offended. I really enjoy Mike’s interviews, and how he approaches each topic.

Thanks Mike keep up the great job   (5/5)

My wife and l both listen to Mike Drop. It is the best podcast by far, he has amazing guests and always well informed. Keep up the great work and we will keep spreading the word on your podcast. Also thank you for your service, we also are members of Team Dog.

Brilliant, funny AF and very informative! Ava

Facinating   (5/5)

I just discovered this podcast. I love the guests and the content Mike brings with this awesome Podcast. I can’t stop listening!

Underrated   (5/5)

Definitely one of the most underrated podcasts out there. Mike is super intelligent and articulate and quickly becoming a master conversationalist. I’d be interested to see him have some people on in the future with either differing views on things to spark debate. Or to see people on from different walks of life. But definitely someone I am dying to hear on Rogan one day. If you don’t love mike drop. Choke yourself.

Part 2: The last episode?!!!   (5/5)

After choking myself and re-listening, I see the studio may be somewhere other than the current location. Relieved and glad the Mike Drop podcast will continue.

Mike Drop show   (5/5)

Great show, it has something for everyone,

If you don’t listen...choke yourself   (5/5)

Mike Drop is a terrific show. Lot’s of knowledge, comedy, and at times emotion. This show has something for everyone.

Excellent   (5/5)

That’s all I can say. Great guests and questions!

Best Podcast around   (5/5)

Mike is the best behind the Mic. His method of interviewing guests and the variety of guests on his show makes it my favorite even ahead of the Jocko podcast. Then again, Jocko sponsors Mike , so he get it.

Awesome podcast Ritland   (5/5)

The Sea Air and Land boys hilarious dudes! I love all of their storiesDear Mike, You ask the perfect question ma and keep the audience captivated. I always am looking forward to your next show. I would love to see your kennel & training operation.

Unconventional Wife& Mom   (5/5)

Been listening to this podcast on my runs, doing laundry, cooking dinner, etc. I’m not a woman who enjoys the sweet “mom” podcasts. Give me guys like Mike and Jocko and their guests! My job is to raise future warriors!

Chalk full of counter intelligence information   (5/5)

As a life long cannabis industry guy, I find Mikes podcast incredibly informative when it comes to counter intelligence. You wouldn’t think a guy in my business would be so interested but Mike delivers the best guest and interviews them with skill. Great podcast.

Best interviewer I listen to   (5/5)

Mike uses his background to inform some very thoughtful and educated questions of his guests, who always have valuable input.

Fantastic podcast!   (5/5)

This podcast rocks - Mike always brings on fantastic guests and does a great job interviewing them. Keep it up brother!

1st time reviewer   (5/5)

Episode 45 is an amazing podcast. Covers so many topics and learned so much.


As someone very unfamiliar with the military, I have always been intrigued by all things military. It is really interesting to listen to the plethora of guests Mike has on. From female apache pilots to Nick the Reaper, I have learned so much and the content is raw and interesting. I look forward to the weekly drops. Keep it up!!

One of the best!   (5/5)

One of the top podcast on the market. Watch out Joe Rogen! In all seriousness, Mike is a professional, the way he interviews his guest is suburb. He is methodical and well prepared. Becaue of this he gets the most information out of his guest each podcast. We will all watch this podcast grow to be one of the top contindors on the platform.

Should have been President   (5/5)

Mike received my 2018 presidential vote so you know how I feel. Great podcast.

Keep them coming!!!!   (5/5)

Sometimes I look at the description and say ehh.. I’ll listen to the first part and see....then end up listening to it twice!! Your tapping into what god fearing, gun toting, freedom loving Americans are being deprived of.

Mike Is A Tremendous Host   (5/5)

An amazing podcast. It’s real. It’s raw and it’s just what the doctor ordered!

Real men still exist in America   (5/5)

A phenomenal podcast with outstanding interviews. Mike has a beautiful dichotomy in his style of interview. He is simultaneously a wise therapist giving insightful advice and a ball breaking death dealer who can deliver hysterically funny one liners. He takes you back and forth on emotions laughing crying. Just an all around amazing podcast. Keep it up big dog! That’s not a viagra joke.

Mike Drop Always worth it   (5/5)

Another informative podcast that every American needs to hear. Great job Mike keep them coming.

Love it   (5/5)

The Meat Church episode was awesome. Will bookmark for future reference.

A great listen   (5/5)

I just finished listening to the the Meat Church episode and it was different from the usual fair that we get from Mike. Instead of the high speed action that you get from former special forces folks or news making stories from the people that have been there done that. This episode had the element of creativity in the sense that it dealt with food. I can tell you while listening I went to the Meat Church website and found things truly interested me. Mike, I look forward to more episodes like this. When is that Commando Cook Book coming out? Keep up the awesome work.

Learn something new   (5/5)

I seriously learn something new every episode of Mike Drop. The guests he brings on have so much incredible information to share, and it’s done in a way that makes it fun to listen to. Keep it up Mike!!

Top 5   (5/5)

This is one of the best podcasts out, hands down! Definitely one of the top 5 of all time.

Only Facts   (5/5)

A+   (5/5)

Never a disappointment! Every time I think I've heard my 'favorite', the next one comes along. Incredible guests with amazing content! And then there's Mikes voice which is 'the cherry on top'!

Love Mike Drop!   (5/5)

Amazing guests who just talk honestly and give a real opinion on real topics!! Literally going through every episode and excited to hear the next one! Mike keeps it honest, no BS, and best of all no PC BS

Talented Podcaster   (5/5)

Mike is a really talented podcaster. He really has great guests from the spec ops community and beyond. I especially love when he has his Navy Seal brothers on the show. They seem to really open up to him and give you an up close personal look into their experiences as Operators. BTW Mike is freaking hilarious. Thank you for the entertainment and more importantly, thank you for your service. Keep up the great work!!!

Best Podcast Around   (5/5)

Mike’s podcast is the one I look forward to most. He gets unbelievable guests on who have great stories/experience from some the coolest jobs on the planet, many of which you probably didn’t know exist. Do yourself a favor - subscribe and listen religiously. If you don’t, choke yourself.

Mike Ritland for president 2020!!!   (5/5)

The one thing I love about this podcast is relevancy is irrelevant and they don’t give a s#*t about your feelings! Great job Mike! I second what the other guy said Mike Ritland for president 2020.....

Mike should run for president   (5/5)

Rico for vice

Thought provoking and inspiring!   (5/5)

Mike does an excellent job of interviewing his guest. He helps them navigate through casual conversation, humorous moments and the deep hard stuff that brings about raw emotion. Each episode leaves me feeling inspired that no matter what you’ve been through or what your background is, you can accomplish great things if you apply yourself.

I have listened to almost all of the MikeDrop podcasts. By far, this is my favorite show. I actually listened 2x so that I could hear Mr. Meyers story. Such a great story. Thank you both....

Great podcast   (5/5)

Mike is straight up honest and doesn’t beat around the bush or try and be PC and I love that.

Keep up the good work!   (5/5)

It makes my day ever time a new episode drops! Love the length of your show the long podcasts are nice when you spend 10-12hrs a day in a tractor or feeding cows. Your show is definitely one of a kind and you ask questions no one else would think to ask! Keep up the great work!!

Mike Drop   (5/5)

Mike has a knack for asking the right questions of the guest, peppered with humor always interesting and never censored.

Great to listen too   (5/5)

I’ve always had issues listening to people talk but the stories on here. I actually enjoy.

Great Show!   (5/5)

Love the back and forth! It’s always good to listen to any show that is both entertaining and the listener learns something.

Green Beret who loves the show   (5/5)

Great podcast Mike, I was never exposed to K9 until I met my girlfriend Sarah Paskey who turned me on to your podcast. I think I listen to your show now more than she does. If you are ever looking for a good person to interview I would recommend Sarah who just skimmed the surface of her career on the Top Dog Show podcast. Had to plug her in, but honestly from a SF guys perspective your show crosses all branches and speaks to a minority of guys who are generally not the most vocal or seekers of support.

Plain fkn great   (5/5)

Stumbled upon this podcast via YouTube recently and have been addicted since. No BS, fascinating interviews with interesting people including the host. Keep in coming please and thank you sir!

Crenshaw-Ritland 2024   (5/5)

If you disagree choke yourself.

3M’s   (5/5)

Fantastic in depth no time limit interviews. What a collection of amazing guests and host! Next I will have to go choke myself after this next sentence. “They must be scripted, paid actors and actresses.” Never mind, I don’t want to choke myself I may miss next Drop from Mike.

Top shelf podcast   (5/5)

This is my first experience listening to inspirational podcasts! By far Mike Drop gives me time to relax and hear experiences that inspire everyone in some way. Mike is the perfect host with great humility and the perfect voice making it the ultimate podcast experience . They way he dives in making guest feel at home and getting to know them personally. I always can hear and feel the mutual respect and passion the Mike and his guests have for one another . As a veteran I am truly proud to have stumbled upon to Mike Drop.

Fantastic Stories and Great Interviewer   (5/5)

Least likely fan   (5/5)

Being a 56 year old born again suburban woman you wouldn’t think mike drop would be my speed. I find myself having a son serving in Afghanistan in a combat situation. Your podcast has helped me so much dealing with this. Love your perspective on things and the level of real ness of your interviews is refreshing. Also a dog owner.

Every episode is a gem!   (5/5)

I love this podcast. I love the long-form conversations, the wide range of topics, the depth, the humor, the raw and real nature of each episode. I learn a ton, discover resources I didn't know about, learn about awesome people doing great work in the world... I love every episode!

Great podcast   (5/5)

The Best!!!!   (5/5)

Love this podcast! Totally real and brutally honest! It’s great makes you want more

Lara Logan   (5/5)

The interview with Lara Logan was phenomenal. She made more sense then any one media person I have ever listened too. Her genuine concern for our country and the entire world was amazing. Her podcast should be mandatory for every single media person, political figure or new anchor to listen to. I found it fascinating and will definitely tell everyone I know to listen to it!!

Ritland / Crenshaw 2020   (5/5)

Been stalking Mike a while, since he was w SOFREP - aside from BK, he’s the best thing to hit the waves in years. Cover your Beta ears because Mike keeps pushing the truth.

MikeDropPodcast   (5/5)

I’ve been a longtime listener of this podcast and it just keeps getting better. The most recent one with Lara Logan was amazing. To hear about everything she has experienced was incredible. Her description of mainstream media needs to be broadcast and made available to everyone. What she experienced in Egypt and to survive that-she is one tough woman. Thank you Mike for making these in-depth interviews. I hope you maintain true to this.

Outstanding interviewer!   (5/5)

I appreciate the conversational style. Ask a question and then let the other person talk. Just what I've been looking for in a podcast. Thank you. Your conversation with Lara Logan was a paradigm shift for me. She garnered my upmost respect in your provocative conversation. Hard to hear her story but she was never a victim. Thank you. We needed to be reminded of how real boots on the ground journalism happens.

A podcast that finally has real conversations   (5/5)

This is my favorite podcast. Finally there is something out there with some real conversations that aren’t afraid of being PC. The guests are diverse and it can be interest to a wide audience. It’s my favorite podcast - Mike really dives deep with all of his guests. It’s definitely worth a listen.

A must for all men   (5/5)

New favorite podcast sorry jocko!

Lara Logan Interview   (5/5)

One of the most inspiring, bold interviews I’ve ever watched. Mike’s interview was amazing, and Lara is amazing. Best ever interview I’ve ever watched, hands down.

Excellent stories and awesome tips, looking forward to listening to more!

What a Podcast!   (5/5)

I've been listening from the start. I purchased a membership to Mike's dog training program and along the line heard him talk about starting a podcast. I love this podcast from the "choke yourself" to the honest interviews this podcast is well worth the time investment. Thank you Mike for the amazing work you have done and continue to do!

Up there with JRE   (5/5)

I appreciate Mike’s bluntness and lack of BS. It is very refreshing in today’s world.

No B.S or hidden agenda   (5/5)

Mike’s podcasts are so great partly because he doesn’t have any products to push. Mostly though because he’s very straight forward, very open to ideas and discussion and because he does serious research and brings it for interviews. He’s very knowledgeable about guests and what they have to bring to the table. Favorite podcaster.

Awesome   (5/5)

Greatest podcast I have listened to. Check it out!

I'm new to this podcast   (5/5)

I heard about Mike Drop from some of the FOX News foks. I listened to the entire 3.5 hour interview with Lara Logan. I had a writhing stomach ache listening to the last 40 minutes. I'm a counselor and I've heard a lot, but Lara is one amazing human being. I look forward to listen to some of the older shows.

You will NOT be disappointed   (5/5)

Love this podcast! Mike does his homework on these guests and it shows! The questions he asks are personal and real. Even guests you’d never think you want to hear from have really impressed me and he continues to do great interviews.

You must listen!   (5/5)

Fantastic! Amazing! I'm always waiting for the next podcast to drop. Keep up the good work

MikeDrop Never Disappoints   (5/5)

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is revolutionary”...Mike and his guests do exactly that, speak the truth! Mike’s guests are not only giants among men (and women), but they all have interesting and inspirational life stories filled with both hardships and great achievement. I’ve listened to almost every one of his podcasts, and am yet to find one that didn’t end too soon...

Mike Drop is the truth!   (5/5)

No matter who Mike has on you’ll be captivated! Truly interesting guests!

Extraordinary people telling their stories   (5/5)

Very open and real conversations with extraordinary people. From undercover DEA agents to SEALs to foreign news correspondents Mike gets guests who’ve lived extraordinary lives and speak matter of factly about their experiences, ramifications and mindsets. One of the most compelling podcasts today.

One of best out pods out there.   (5/5)

Worthy of my time every week is the best endorsement I can think to say. Great conversations with legit guests from variety of backgrounds. But will admit, episodes with team guys are my personal favorites. Mike has become an outstanding "interviewer", his questions are all wheat, no chaff. Appreciate that there is no 20 minutes of schlepping merch every episode.

Mike has done a great job weaving in a variety of content and guests. Mike seems to really take his time to learn about his guest beforehand and then uses that to help guide the conversation in a productive way. The sound quality is always good and if you don’t like this podcast you should probably #chokeyourself

Uncensored and untamed   (5/5)

A refreshing dose of uncensored discussions that go anywhere the person being interviewed wants to go with no concern for being to politically charged to publish. Who can’t get behind the man that cares for and rehabilitates dogs that would have likely saw the pink needle after their military service?

Best podcast out there   (5/5)

Only podcast I ever listen to. Mike gets straight into it and is always honest. Amazing guests with amazing stories. 10/10


I’ve been following Mike’s dog training and general content for a couple years now and all of that is great info, especially for those of you lucky enough to have dogs. BUT!!!! Let me tell you, if you want the real deal, unfiltered, open your eyes to the real world, pick up a ton of useful and entertaining info type podcast, then do yourself a favor and go, right NOW, and listen to the @mikedroppodcast. I’ve only had the pleasure of listening to 4 of the episodes thus far (episodes 23, 1, 2, 3) and he’s hit just about every topic you could hit but the best part is there’s no bias BS, trying to force people to one side or the other. He is a super intelligent and understanding guy that asks a lot of great questions and the guests will blow your mind! Not to mention, it’s just entertaining as hell. (For those that don’t like a little colorful language sprinkled in for fun, I would suggest not focusing on that and focus on the story/content) I can’t say enough about how awesome this guy, his guests and the podcast is, so go check it out NOW or go choke yourself. Thanks Mike (and guests) for your service and sharing your stories with us mere mortals!🤙

Love it   (5/5)

Great show. Lots of great info from many different perspectives. I really enjoy listening to mike!

The Depth Keeps Getting Better   (5/5)

Mike - the last 2 podcasts with Eddie Penny and Lara Logan have taken the podcast to a new level. I found Lara’s to be amazing and heart wrenching with the honesty and detail. I also found the open discussion about our country, media and politics to bring out what so many of us feel and know in our hearts. Thank you for all you have done and are doing.

The EP episode is positively the best I’ve ever heard. Great job Mr. Ritland. Great information that gives an example of the kind of selfless service and sacrifice provided by our most honorable warriors. I could listen to you guys talk for days.

Go choke yourself   (5/5)

There are so many podcast out there, a person doesn’t know which way to turn. This podcast is one of the very best ones out there!If you love your country and love seal team members. This is a must listen, If not go choke yourself!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

The life lessons on this podcast are essential for success and the guests are A list. I would recommend to anyone who wants to improve their life.

Mike Drop Podcast   (5/5)

This podcast is just overall the best I have ever listened too. He goes in depth and is brutally honest. It’s a great podcast for those who don’t get their feelings hurt easily!

Mike Drop Review   (5/5)

Great podcast! Mike does a great job with these long format discussions! He’s not the mindless talking head like most of the crap out there. I appreciate the candid, open and frank chats The fair push back and forth with the guest. And his recommendation on CBD for the dogs is spot on. We gave it a shot using his Trikos Supplement on our older Dachshund. Going on 11 years old now. He’s got that pep in his step again. Moving and running around, agile, and much more comfortable. He’s not been this spritely since he broke his back 4 years ago! Keep up the good works and give them hell Mike! 👍💪 Tom M.

Awesome!   (5/5)

Awesome   (5/5)

Finally caught up on all the podcasts. AWESOME

Phenomenal Podcast!   (5/5)

From influence to motivation, Mike delivers it every episode along the side of the individuals he speaks with and their stories. I can’t get enough of the podcast and I’ve almost listened to all current episodes. I need more Mike!

Entertaining AF!   (5/5)

Mikes approach to podcasting is very interesting (in a good way). Traditionally podcasts have had a conversation like format and only that. Mike has merged that with some old school interview style and his podcast has quickly risen to my top 5. He has awesome guests and never fails to delivery, he also doesn’t talk over guests which is a common thing amongst bigger podcasts.

Go where others won’t   (5/5)

Mike- I listen to this podcast all the time. Several I’ve listen to more than once. This podcast is an in your face, honest and note worthy. If you’re delicate don’t listen or do and get some valuable perspective to combat your fickle feelings. If you opt not then “go choke yourself”. All that aside, I would love to hear one or two (dozen)podcasts with you and a few politicians that have impeded themselves in life long politics. That my friend would surely be entertaining and I would be willing to pay to watch. Or I can bring the whiskey if someone brings the popcorn. Thanks to you and your guests that have served our great nation. Keep up the substance your podcast bring to us the listeners. God speed on the arm recovery! Steven

BAMF   (5/5)

Mike Drop is the kind of podcast you can rely on to be real and filled with great direction and purpose. Mike Ritland has a voice quality that I never tire of hearing. He does a great job of researching each guest, and composing the interview with a structure that makes each guest’s story come to life in a full way. I also appreciate that the audio quality itself is consistently clear and at a consistent volume.

Greatest ever   (5/5)

I thought this podcast was great, then I heard the Dr James Mitchell interview, which goes down as the Greatest interview I have ever heard. Listening to it should be a prerequisite to vote

(USMC 04-08)

Practical and to the point   (5/5)

Mike picks American leaders and subject matter experts to discuss important topics and inform the public. The humor and down to earth way it’s accomplished is great. No ego inflation or mutual appreciation parties are thrown here, no nonsense “REAL TALK”

Awesome podcast!   (5/5)

I loooove this podcast! Mikes the real deal and tells it like it is...may hurt millennials and/or snowflakes feeling! Doesn’t give a $h!t about your feelings so leave your purse at home and have a listen! America needs more of this! Thanks for your service and all the great podcasts!

America   (5/5)

This podcast is one of the best podcast that I listen to daily I want to thank you for serving our country. Mike’s sacrificing your life for our country and for your family and friends for their Sacrifice why are you were serving overseas you have some really good topics you are a great speaker thank you again

Mike Drop is a MUST LISTEN TOO Podcast!   (5/5)

Mike always has very deep and meaningful guests on his shows and when they dive deep I mean deep. He asks the hard questions and gets them to really open up and talk about stuff the guests wouldn’t want to engage in. Mike is also a great guy, I have seen the way he treats his dogs and for a person to do what he does with dogs is nothing short of incredible. Take it from me, a fellow Navy man I can speak to the Honor/Courage and Commitment that the Navy stands for and Mike lives his life by this code and it shows.

Self Check   (5/5)

I punched myself in the throat after this episode because it was so tough and I had to get to that level...

Military, Dogs, Texas, BBQ, Service, Country, Duty, Honor   (5/5)

In no particular order the above items are what makes listening to Retired Navy SEAL Mike Ritland both an honor and a privilege. He comes across as down to earth, easy to relate to, and laid back while still having the experiences and wisdom to hold real, straightforward discussions with some absolutely amazing interviewees. It’s astonishing the level of service, sacrifice and greater good mentality that’s stems from the military/SEAL mindset, training and values. This podcast is a fantastic view “behind the curtains” of what it takes to keep freedom alive for the American citizen and we should all hope we gain the motivation from listening to it or elsewhere, to get out there, not take those blessings for granted and start living like freedom isn’t free. God bless America!

👊🏽   (5/5)

Always look forward to the next episode. Awesome podcast.
