Human Trafficking Series EP4: The Warriors: Grant Gildon and Tariq Muslimivic
In continuing our series on Human Trafficking, I sat down with Arlington, TX Child Sex Crimes Sergeant Grant Gildon, who is the detective on the Amber Hagerman case that inspired the Amber Alert System. I've known Grant for over 20 years and couldn't possibly admire him more or be more proud of him.
Also joining us was Tarik Muslimovic, Sergeant in charge of human trafficking in Arlington, who just had a big win in the fight.Tarik is a serious and highly motivated guy who's life is dedicated to this cause. What you learn quickly in the conversation, is that these men are outstanding human beings. They are standing on that wall, fighting every single day to protect our children and vulnerable from these heinous criminals. They are the very best amongst us and deserve our highest gratitude and respect.
Human Trafficking Series EP3: The "Surthrivers"/ Nakia Vestal
Nakia Vestal is the American success story. She wasn't born rich, had no silver spoon, and zero advantages afforded to others. She is however, a very successful entrepreneur despite of that. But its one thing to not have advantages, and quite another to have overwhelming disadvantages.
Nakia was a victim of sex trafficking, and she's on a mission to help others in the same situation and to spread the truth about it. Her story and insight are extremely valuable and we are thankful she shared her story with us.

Human Trafficking Series EP2: The Warriors/ David Reid Of RedM
Two years ago I threw a hail Mary and sent an email to David Reid, the VP of NOV, to be a guest on my brand new podcast. I asked him to come on to talk about a new technology at his company. To my surprise and gratitude, he obliged and was my 3rd interview ever.
During the meeting, he discussed something near and dear to his heart, and where he and his wife have spent a lifetime of work. I had been searching for something to put my energy into, something to believe in, and something that was incredibly important. From that moment, I knew I had to be a part of this, and join the fight.
David and his wife are warriors in the fight against Sex Trafficking and Slavery. His sober knowledge on the subject will wake you up and inspire you. I can't thank him enough for his mentorship. I know you will enjoy this discussion. Y
