Sorry the next episode has taken so long, I had a shoot set up with the Tacoma Rainiers and then the player got hurt. We still have another episode coming and I'm waiting on the finished artwork. I think it will be great. In the meantime. Check this out. This is an old podcast I recorded when I was just testing out the idea for the podcast, and it was called "CAREER DAY" - Don't steal that name, I might still use that - featuring my buddy Todd McComas. He's a police detective in Indianapolis and a very funny comedian. These test podcasts helped me decide that I should have a video component to it to help make it different than just two dudes talkin. I thought this would be interesting to listen to because he tells some crazy stories and we discuss some of the recent police GOTCHA moments at the time this was recorded. We discuss if the training is good enough or is it setting cops up for failure. So I figured I'd unearth this old episode because it's still pretty relevant. This is one of the videos I was talking about: https://youtu.be/q1q41OMvvbM This is another one of the videos I was talking about: https://youtu.be/yfi3Ndh3n-g In those videos, I just don't feel like those are realistic scenarios. At the same time, I understand training for unrealistic or unlikely situations can be very helpful. I think maybe there's a better way to do it. Anyway, fascinating stuff. Todd has lived a crazy lifestyle. If you see him on a comedy lineup near you, go check it out. http://Toddcomedy.com. Also, next time a police officer is being a dick for no reason, give them a break, they have a tough job.
