Leadership and Trust with Command Sgt. Major Chris Johnson (U.S. Army ret.)

Win This Year

Chris Johnson was a successful student and athlete before getting caught up in some unhealthy decision making.  Once he found himself selling drugs and in the local gang detail book, he knew he needed to make a choice.  Enlisting in the U.S. Army sent him down a nearly three-decade path where he learned the importance of leadership, trust, and putting others first.  Following his retirement from the military, he began mentoring youth and teaching them critical life skills.  He joins us on this episode of Win This Year to share his experience, wisdom, and ideas on how lessons learned in the military can apply to both youth and parents.  Those interested in reaching out to Chris can email him at:christopher.johnson166@yahoo.comBehavioral/mental health resources:National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: (800) 273-8255Crisis Text Line: Text "Listen" to 741741Community Information and Referral Services: Dial 211 or visit 211.orgSAMHSA Behavioral Health Treatment Locator: https://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/notMYkid Website: https://notmykid.org/notMYkid Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/notMYkid/notMYkid Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/notmykiddotorg/notMYkid Twitter: https://twitter.com/notmykidtweetsnotMYkid YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/notMYkidVidsWin This Year show email: WinThisYear@notmykid.org

Blynd Submyshynz Episode 28: Chris Johnson from Deafheaven, Summoner, and Doomriders

Blynd Submyshynz

This week it's a new milestone...our first-ever (that we know of) Grammy nominated guest, the incredibly charming Chris Johnson from Deafheaven, Summoner, Doomriders, running live sound, and engineering lots of great recordings, including the Worshipper tracks on the Glory or Death Thin Lizzy and Deep purple  tribute  and the Magnetic Eye Records "Live at Day of Doom" records featuring Elephant Tree, Domkraft, Horsehunter, and Summoner. Deafheaven released a career retrospective record titled "10 Years Gone" in December 2020 featuring new recordings of old tracks, handled masterfully by their longtime collaborator Jack Shirley.As always, we covered ground, including Chris' growing love of surfing, getting a car stolen in San Francisco, attending the Grammys, why the headstock on Dingwall basses is so silly, a new live record from Deafheaven, when touring will start again, coming up in the Boston scene (he has a checkered past...thanks Santos!), and his all-time favorite hometown band (Cave In). As a bonus delight, watch all three of us struggle to remember which song Summoner recorded on Magnetic Eye's Black Sabbath tribute (Chris played and recorded it and it's Jeff's favorite Sabbath song, but still we struggled). We also listened to music and stuff...really good crop of submissions this week!
