“I Barely Got Here” is a collection of stories, conversation and commentary as told by a veteran 24 year police Sergeant. Just like the job, the episodes will be across the board - you’ll laugh, cringe, cry, maybe even learn a little about public safety as you hear stories told in a way that only a cop on the street can tell them.

Exceptional listen. Top crime and Cop Podcast. Highly recommended

This podcast is phenomenal. A lot of podcasts have an awkwardness to them but this one is so smooth and has none of that. The recent episodes with Jay are just incredible. Very intense and impossible to stop listening. The “7 shots” episode is one of, if not the best episode and is just crazy intense. The worst part about this podcast is waiting for a new episode! For a first time podcaster Kevin has a superb talent for doing this and does such a great job because if you have never tried doing a podcast it’s insanely difficult so to be this good this quick just shows true talent.

More Jay!

This is a really good podcast, the last few episodes with Jay’s stories have made this an over the top great podcast! Please keep Jay’s stories coming, hope he’s got more to share. It’s tough waiting two weeks between episodes to find out what’s next.
