He is now the President of Red Variable Concepts - http://www.red-variable.com/ and the Founder of Select-International Training Institute http://www.the-select-few.com .

Ianem27 ,

Battleline

Absolutely love this podcast. Between Ian and Kris they keep it fun and interesting. If you enjoy good talks this is it for you and they also have some good discounts on some stuff as well. Thanks for everything you guys do to take time out of your day to do the podcast

GERMANIAN WOLF ,

Great content

One of the best podcasts in the military/LEO genre. Conversations are very personal and is genuinely unscripted. Interviews routinely showcase a behind-the-scenes perspective, from people who were there, during some of the most eye opening events in military and/or first responder history. A must-listen!!!

I wish this company and products existed when I was an active LEO! I worked in a hot humid climate and this would have been welcomed to keep you dry and not getting rashes!! Awesome! Good luck with the products!!
