WDP060: Filters of violence
I share some thoughts on how you can use filters of violence to look at incidents and learn from them. By consciously switching these filters, you can avoid being blindsided by your own biases or lack of specific experience. In the end, they help you discover more information that you can then use to keep yourself safe. For the shownotes, go to: https://wimsblog.com/60

If you plan to do some exotic traveling, listen to this episode for some practical information that could just save your life.
