There are many dark elements of our society that we rarely get to see light being shone upon. Some that of most people knew were taking place, they would be up in arms and legitimately take action. This episode was one of those beaming lights illuminating a nasty scourge taking place. This episode o sit down with Lt. John Nores of the California dept. of fish and wildlife highlighting the dangerous and amazing work he and his teammates have done combatting the environmentally devastating marijuana grow sites in CA. A ton of riveting operational stories in this one, and a lot of info that we all need to understand that is taking place. @johnnores

038 Tony Blauer

How prepared are you in terms being attacked in a real work setting? Violence is part of human nature, and there are examples all day everyday of people who are woefully underprepared for it. There’s also a lot of science behind both the nature of violent attacks as well as a humans natural response to it. This episode I sit down with the legend, Tony Blauer of Blauer Tactical Systems. Tony is the real deal and after 40 years studying violence, mindset, resiliency and more his program is much deeper than a how to punch or choke someone out, there are so many good real world lessons in this one!

The SEAL teams are filled with ultra competitive over achievers, men who set their minds to accomplish a goal and don’t stop until they are either successful or dead.

034 Hamody Jasim

There are times in our lives when we feel defeated, at our lowest, and like we can’t win. Most often here in this country, the “problems” that we complain about are very trivial. I talk a lot about perspective on my shows and how we should all use it to gain insight on the issues we face. This episode I sit down with Hamody Jasim aka the Terrorist Whisperer and talk about his time growing up in Iraq during Saddams reign, the overthrowing of it, and post regime. To say that perspective was gained during this one is an understatement. A truly remarkable and moving episode that you need to listen to. @the_terrorist_whisperer
