    TLP 362 – “Do Not Be The Evil You Are Seeking To Overcome”

    TLP 362 – “Do Not Be The Evil You Are Seeking To Overcome”


    In this episode of the Talking Lead Podcast we get cerebral. Our guests are "J" with The League Of Pirates and Brian with Occam Defense Solutions. We discuss the disturbing current events that are brewing in our Country. What lead us to this point? Who is behind it? What can you do? How should you prepare for what is to come? All this and we tackle some Jackwagons and honor some Lead Head Brigade Heores!

    True democracy is the tyranny of the majority. True democracy is mob rule. Thankfully, we do not live in a democracy. We live in a republic. Article IV Section 4, of the Constitution: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of government … ” And living in this republic means that every voice matters, majorities do not rule and those with the loudest voices do not automatically win. The will of the people means all of the people.

    TLP 359 – THE AK KORNER S2 Ep11: “The Bad Guy Gun”

    TLP 359 – THE AK KORNER S2 Ep11: “The Bad Guy Gun”


    On this month's Talking Lead AK Korner presented by Century Arms we delve into how the AK-47 developed the stigma of being the "Bad Guy Gun". Joining the conversation with Lefty is Brian Keeney (Occam Defense Solutions), Jeremy Gresham (IWI US) and Andrew Breneman (Century Arms). To fully understand this "Bad Guy Gun" stigma we have to take it back to the AK's origins in 1946, go through the many conflicts and revolutions which were fought with the AK ( focusing on the Vietnam War) and bring it to present day and the impact the AK-47 has on American pop-culture. We discuss the AK-47 in movies, tv, art, toys & music that influenced us growing up and it's influence on the youth today. Lefty and the gang take to social media to field listeners' favorite movies featuring the AK-47 and then 3 Lucky Lead Heads get rewarded.

The BEST for LEADucation

I’ve been listening to Lefty and his guests for a couple of years now and love every episode. I was a virtual newbie to the firearms and 2A community when I started and love the LEADucation that I get every week. It’s interesting and fresh and fun. I love the new Lefty’s Heroes segments to compliment the Jackwagons. This Lady Leadhead loves this podcast.

Get Leaducated!

I’ve been listening to talking lead for about six months and have been absolutely blown away! The host, Lefty, is plugged in to the firearms community and keeps the podcast fresh with guests. Lefty keeps the show laid back, down to earth, and sprinkled in a good amount of laughs. Despite his bulging muscles and chiseled features, Lefty, doesn’t take himself too seriously. Most importantly, Talking Lead gives back to the listeners more than any other podcast I’ve encountered. There are countless giveaways, contests, and opportunities for listener feedback. The podcast is truly listener driven! There are a lot of fantastic 2A centered podcasts that I enjoy, but Talking Lead is the only one I look forward to the most each week. Give it a listen and participate in the conversations. -J. Spill
