3rd Shift Chronicles Episode 8: My take on the Covid-19 pandemic
I have spent the better part of 30 years unfucking other people's problems. I have an analytic mind and am always trying to find the solution to any problem I am faced with. With the COVID-19 pandemic, I had to really read between the lines and try to make sense out of this global issue. This episode is my opinion and analysis of the situation. You may agree with me, you may think I am full of crap. Either way, I appreciate you taking the time to listen!

3rd Shift Chronicles Episode 7: A Head Banging Incident
In this episode, I share a crazy story from my time as a cop in West Pottsgrove Twp. PD in PA. This story details a domestic call that I responded to with a 6'5", 250lb guy wearing nothing but old school YMCA gym shorts who was high on PCP, Cocaine and Booze. Let's just say, he went to jail with a headache and probably will never eat spicy food ever again!

3rd Shift Chronicles Episode 5: Project Use Your Brain; My Logical Way of Understanding Today's Political Landscape
In this episode, I share how I come to rational and logical decisions when deciphering today's political landscape. In a world where news media outlets are so drastically in conflict on the same conversation, it is very difficult to know what is true and what is fiction. Who to believe and trust becomes a crap shoot when you are inundated with starkly one-sided information. Additionally, as a society, we have become reactionary and easily emotionally manipulated as a result of smart phones, cable TV and social media. My goal is to inspire people to use their critical thinking brains to make rational and logical decisions when choosing a political party or candidate. I have no desire to change people's political affiliation, rather I am simply asking them to be educated and come to their decisions from a place of logic vs. emotion. I use the same logic when I am hiring a doctor, lawyer, accountant, or, God forbid, ever a victim of a crime - a police officer. I want the best person for the job. I don't care if they love their mother, went to church, gave to charity, kicked a dog or banged a hooker - I want them to do their job exceptionally well and that is it. Perspective of what government is - they are OUR employee's in the business of running America. I don't need Jesus to be my elected official. Let's USE OUR BRAINS!!!!!

In this episode, I share a funny story from 1995 or so that features me and a few of my fellow officer's dealing with a 300lb naked woman who hears God speaking to her as she is laying in a mud puddle one summer night around midnight. Disclaimer: I am in now way slighting those with obesity or mental illness. Simply sharing a story that actually happened the way I describe it in this episode. Sometimes, shit is just funny.
