In this episode we talk with director Phil Wall and GORUCK Founder and CEO Jason McCarthy about their film The Standard, a documentary that captures one of the GORUCK Selection challenges. GORUCK Selection is not only the toughest endurance event on the planet, it’s also an attempt to bridge the military-civilian divide. Hosted by a group of Special Forces combat veterans, this 48-hour challenge is a condensed interpretation of the US Army’s 24-day Assessment and Selection. For the participants, the event is a chance to test their limits while paying tribute to those who serve. For the Special Force Cadre who lead the event, it’s an opportunity to honor their roots and connect with civilians.
