    Truly Excellent
    A most excellent podcast. Host has an excellent calm style. He lets the guest tell their story & keeps them on track. Can’t take Annie Jacobson seriously after reading “Area 51.”

    Thank you
    Shawn is doing incredible work through his podcast. His pursuit of the truth, exposing the truth and encouraging his listeners to do the same is a breath of fresh air in age when we are repeatedly lied to by so many people, organizations, social media, governments, etc. Keep up the good work, Shawn! You have my full support!

    Can’t wait for the next episode
    This is hands down the best and gritty podcast today. If you want to know what’s really going on, start listening to this show. Some are long but it’s worth every second.

    One Word
    I don’t know why Sean keeps telling us to write “one word” as our review, but I finally followed his instructions. I’ve listened to every episode, and the guests have been both VERY encouraging/inspiring and VERY humbling all at the same time. The courage that it takes for his guests to share the most intimate of personal details is almost overwhelming. At times, I have found myself shedding my own tears as I listen to the reality of the struggles they have faced (and continue to face). I was a USMC Infantry Officer from 2002-2008. Unfortunately, I didn’t know the difference between officer and enlisted until I hit the fleet and it was too late for me to rewind that decision. I think the most interesting takeaway for me, as I reflect back on my time in service, has been the overall lack of preparation for our deployments and a clear mission once we were in country. I feel like I just spent most of the time I was in Eastern Afghanistan (leading up to and encompassing the first Afghan Presidential elections in 2004) driving around (in thin-skinned vehicles) hoping we don’t get blown up. Maybe my circumstances were unique, but I never had one true “work up” (think preparation for our overseas mission) that consisted of three or four weeks of training at best (for any of my four deployments). I sure wish that I’d had even 1/3 of the preparation time that our spec ops community is afforded. Though, I’m grateful that folks in that community have the opportunity they are afforded in preparation for the mission that they are about to undertake. They must have a much higher level of precision and a much lower margin of error given the nature of their missions. Big thanks to the SRS for having the courage/humility to bring these stories/this information to anyone willing to listen! Semper Fi, Rad M.

    The best!
    Absolutely the best podcast available! Get ready to, laugh, cry, get angry, motivated, think, believe, question, and every other emotion you can think of. Shawn was born to do these interviews and he listens. Too many other shows want to expound their their knowledge of the world and Shawn simply says “teach me what I don’t know or understand”. He never “one ups a guest”. He surely has crazy stories from his career but he puts them away…and Shawn, we as listeners, want to hear them one day when you are ready and can share them. Love you brother. Keep up the awesome podcast and keep revealing the truth!
  • USMC JTF129
    Outstanding information and stories
    Great interview technique and skills. Definitely see a lot of hours of hard work and probably laying in bed trying to sleep but mind working to make the show better. Glad you committed your life to Christ and it is obvious you are working just as hard to bring others to Christ. Keep up the good work brother and don’t underestimate the fruits of your labor.
  • Will Lyda
    Being Ex military I’ve always managed to hold my fillings in, Don graves broke me down and made me feel that being a patriot is still a wonderful thing.. I’ve never laughed, I wanted to cry, and was wanting the episode to never end. The best 2 hours in my life not wasted .. awesome job.. can’t wait to listen to more

    Superior podcast
    Mr. Ryan has a great style and asks the most poignant questions. I really enjoy the journey from early life to where the guest is at this point in time. Keep up the good work and thank you for bringing humanity to SOF and the toll the GWOT has taken on our brothers and sisters. God bless you.

    The Shawn Ryan Show is Awesome!
    I found this show from his episode from the John Deloney Show. Shawn is awesome and brings amazing content to the public space. I’ve learned an immense about our warriors and what they’ve gone through to serve our communities as well as current events. Thank you for what your show and guests share!

    Better than JRE!
    I watch Shawn every week and it’s so engaging and entertaining aside from the fact it’s informative about some of the biggest issues we’re facing currently. Couple that with his amazing personality and brilliant guests, this is a better podcast than JRE. Thanks Shawn lifelong listener here!

    Shawn Ryan Show
    Great host and guest. Love the detail and depth that the interviews go into. Keep them coming. Keep uncovering the truth and helping with mental illness. Thank you and welcome home!
  • the billi goat
    Great episode with Tyler
    I have to say , after listening to this episode I can see a lot of what Tyler was saying in myself. As a firefighter in North St.Louis County. I can see the parallels in the compartmentalization of emotions and memories. It’s also pretty common in our field for guys to have the same issues with personal worth and relationships. It’s nice to hear you guys talking about it and making it more acceptable to talk about. Thank you for what you do. Cheers.

    Best podcast. Great people.
  • Rleger2
    Well done
    Sean does a great job of extracting information from his guests through excellent questions and allowing his guests to answer, uninterrupted. You can tell he wants his show to be about his guests, instead of about him. I enjoy his interviews with his wife as well, they’re both great listeners. Keep on keeping on.
  • Lukebowe
    I’ve been listening to SRS since I listened to him destroy the liberal reporter in his studio, back when I was stationed at Fort Campbell, Shawn keep up the awesome work man. I make sure to watch EVERY SINGLE EPISODE on YouTube.

    Eye opening.
  • kait9008
    The BEST Podcast Show
    I was just introduced to the SRS and I can’t stop listening/watching this show. My eyes have been opened to more and more topics, history, and current events that I have never heard of or known existed. Just impressed and I feel way more educated. You will not regret listening to any of these episodes on SRS. Excellent show!
  • SLAC34221
    Great interviews. The subject matter is about the person being interviewed, and Sean does a magnificent job of getting the person’s story out. My favorite interviews!
  • Ryans show
    Started listening a month ago, and it has become my go to podcast. Incredible work that is honest, interesting, captivating, and just all around good. Keep it up
  • Jwg8803
    Great show, amazing insights, cool stories, and influential. Regardless of opinion it’s refreshing to hear the stories of heroes ( military, civilian, or otherwise). Humanizes the realities of today in a way that tries to stay away from political preaching. If you have a son (who’s old enough) this show has real stories of standing up for others, your beliefs, and the best parts of American patriotism.

  • Vonkamrath666
    Incredibly Gripping
    Easily the best podcast out there. Shawn not only gets great guests, but asks all the right questions. Covering not only stories of war but the effects of life after and the support needed for these brave warfighters.
  • Sabot55
    As a former Army Captain, it’s hard for me to find an episode of his I don’t find exceptionally educational.

    Love it.
    This podcast seems to be one of few places telling the truth. Even though I’m not military I love the stories these guys have and how they overcome certain things. Thank you to all of you guys that have served and are serving currently.
  • Stand4Truth90
    Thank you Shawn
    I can count on one hand the number of reviews I’ve written. It’s something I just never take the time to do. However, if I find something exceptional, I make an exception. And this show is just that. Exceptional! Keep the episodes coming. Thank you SRS.
  • extremesgs
    Overall review plus Ep 120
    Long time listener… great topics, great format. Shawn does an amazing job guiding the guests through their stories… not easy to do, but he does it extremely well. Elpisode 120 was the “book I couldn’t put down”… wandered around the house doing stuff listening to it until it ended. Intense and well done. Thanks for the continued hard work.
  • Phil Hatfield
    Full of interesting People and Topics
    Very interesting episodes, a lot of them! A various selection of topics discussed in depth and Shawn is excellent at tapping the breaks to have the Guest brake down specific thoughts or details to help the listener fully understand what is being discussed. Thus is by far one of my favorite Podcast shows right up there with Rogan as far as the Guest / Interviewer dynamic and important topics discussed, in my opinion, Shawn is actually getting in deeper on topics that many American citizens need to know about to understand the lies and manipulation that is going on. They count on people to be passive and not notice what they are doing that will undoubtedly have effects on the future generations if they aren’t exposed to the masses and taken seriously!
