The Sheepdog Project
About This Show
People face threats of violence every day, ranging from large-scale terrorism to one-on-one assaults. Most people are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond effectively. This weakness in the flock allows the wolves to attack with great ease and success.
There are a chosen few who have the courage to place themselves in harm's way between the wolves and the flock. They are known as Sheepdogs.
Tim Kennedy, combat proven Special Forces Sniper, Airborne Ranger, and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Tim has dedicated his life to protecting others, and teaching the skills of both armed and unarmed combat to the next generation of Sheepdogs.
Doctor Mike Simpson, former Special Forces Operator, Airborne Ranger, and battle-proven warrior with over three decades of military experience. Mike has made it his mission to save lives both on and off the battlefield, and to spread the ethos of what it means to be a Sheepdog.
From Law enforcement officers and first responders, to Combat Veterans and Martial Arts masters, the Sheepdog Project explores every aspect of what it means to be a modern Sheepdog.

SDP Episode 18: Captain Dale Dye
3 days ago
In this episode, Doc interviews Captain Dale Dye, USMC(Retired), a legend in both military and movie circles. Captain Dale A. Dye, served 20 year sin the United States Marine Corps, rising from the rank of recruit private to Master Sergeant, before ultimately becoming a warrant officer, and finally a commissioned officer. He served multiple tours of combat in Vietnam, earning the Bronze Star with “V” for Valor, and three Purple Hearts for wound sustained in combat. He also saw action in Beirut Lebanon in the early 1980’s. Captain Dye came to Hollywood in 1985 with a vision in mind…to change how American civilians view the common grunt. Having been around infantrymen all his life and having been one himself, he knew that the majority are intelligent, creative, and full of heart…and the image of the dumb cannon-fodder blindly following orders not only was not true…but was a grave disservice to those brave servicemen who had risked and often gave their lives so that our nation could survive and prosper. So he looked for the best medium available to reach the hearts and minds of the public, and chose the film and television industry to spread his message. Captain Dye’s current passion project is the film “No Better Place to Die”. This film will tell the incredible story of the three-day battle for the La Fiere bridge in Normandy, where brave soldiers from the US Army’s famed 82nd Airborne Division fought one of the most ferocious small-unit combats in US history.
