Thanks for sharing your story!!

I’m glad I discovered this podcast. It takes a lot to come out and share all these stories, raw and authentic ! I also like the fact you shed a positive light on law enforcement, and that they’re actually good people. God bless you Brett!

This is so unique

I became an instant fan right away. Can’t wait for season 2.

I really think you should try to put this out there on other platforms. Not that many reviews cause not that many people know about it yet for real!!!
