The Protector Nation podcast A.k.a. The Protector Podcast is simply a podcast where we study modern day protectors. A place where we will look into the minds of those men and women who have been warriors for great causes that they believe in. We will study people who have had the privilege of protecting in real time, in real life and who have emerged victorious and also failed but survived to tell the story. Our goal is to help good people become more willing capable and prepared to protect themselves and their loved ones. Primarily we do this through digital content, live events and now this podcast is just one more tool we are using to educate protectors about what it truly takes to do the job when the time comes.

    Protector Nation Podcast EP13: Destruction is a Skillset

    Protector Nation Podcast EP13: Destruction is a Skillset

    Tim Larkin is a lifelong martial artist who has been living the mission of helping good people become more willing capable and prepared to deal with violence for decades. It’s truly an honor to be able to join forces with him for this episode as he brings a number of real-world experiences and a wealth of knowledge to his target focus and a hand combat discipline.

    This is an art he’s been teaching to law-enforcement and military professionals for many years along with responsible civilians who want to understand the inner workings of violence. He has a well-established and very robust brand that you can genuinely get lost in but that will really help you not only on a physical level but on a psychological level understand the inner workings of violence. This is something everyone should truly seek to understand before being faced with needing to know how to deal with it effectively.

    I Violence is down and dirty, it’s not pretty by any means so many people shy away from understanding it but one of the things we talk about in this episode is simply the fact that through understanding it you can become a better person on many different levels… additionally I am very excited and honored to join forces with him on our new protector nation project so look forward to learning much more from him there as well. This episode has something for everyone. ENJOY!

    Protector Nation Podcast EP12: Politics or Police

    Protector Nation Podcast EP12: Politics or Police

    Mike Shaw was a police officer for 10 years where he served various roles in patrol and drug task force operations. He took training seriously and found ways to improve his fitness, shooting abilities, and tactics. He began a couple of years ago growing his social media with the intent to help others, motivate people (especially police) to train and stay fit.

    This is where I saw quite a bit of crossover because my brand is also geared towards people who see protection as more than just a job because we all know it requires a lifestyle to truly be able to perform at a respectable level with regards to our craft. We cover a wide variety of topics during this interview, some controversial, and some will simply reinforce what it is you already know.

    At the end of the day, Mike Shaw is the type of guy I’d like to have with me when the rubber meets the pavement because he puts the hours in to be the type of guy who can be depended on and that’s what I hope to see more professionals strive to be like within the first responder and private security communities... The funny thing is that this way of life and these principles are also parallel within the civilian world so put in the work because in order to be the man you’ve got to become the man and that requires a process.

    Protector Nation Podcast EP11: Gray Man Project

    Protector Nation Podcast EP11: Gray Man Project

    Every once in a while, a Marine comes along and wants to make even more of a contribution. Brady seems to be one of those types of Marines. Although he has already completed his service, he continues to serve the communities and cultures he belongs to on many levels and in extracurricular ways.

    He is now an executive protection agent which is initially how I stumbled across him. He has a nonprofit that helps veterans find their way through taking them out in nature to do hunts, hikes, camp trips, etc. to use nature as therapy. One of his newer products and projects is what initially caught my eye which is the “Gray Man Project“ where he aims to train people of the gray man mentality and way of life in order to empower them to protect themselves and their families.

    It was an absolute honor to have this conversation with Brady as there are so many crossovers and overlaps between the two of us and the paradigms we live by, there will be many more things to come out of this relationship but for now, enjoy this podcast and get plugged into work this man is doing because there will be some really big things coming down the line. ENJOY!

    Protector Nation Podcast EP10: The COVID19 Contact

    Protector Nation Podcast EP10: The COVID19 Contact

    With so much going on around the topic of COVID-19 I figured it would benefit all of us to hear from a very close friend of mine who is operating on the front lines, he works urgent care in Las Vegas where there’s quite a break out right now. His name is Kirk Robinson and he was my Corman back when I was in the Marine Corps, we fought in a war together and still talk on a weekly basis to this very day.

    Recently I posted a video with him sharing some experiences he’s having with different patients and Instagram actually banned the video… I figured since I’m not free to share my thoughts, his experiences or anything outside of their narrative on their platform; I figured I just use my own because what I think is most important is to have more opinions and more critical thinkers and more experiences brought to light on this issue.

    The goal of this podcast is to give the listener a realistic perspective on what people are experiencing with regards to this virus on a daily basis. Doc Robinson is what we called him in the Marine Corps so that’s why you hear me refer to them as throughout the interview. Nonetheless he is seeing patients who are actively dealing with this virus on a daily basis and our message is simply that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Understand the problem, come up with an efficient strategy and move forward boldly. I believe this podcast will be the first in a series… ENJOY

    Protector Nation Podcast EP9: Moving Forward

    Protector Nation Podcast EP9: Moving Forward

    In this episode, I talk about Life… Struggle… Purpose… Focus and the overall path to success. I have a series in my other podcast called “Considerations“ and this is where I just simply freestyle and share with you things I have on my mind along with tools I’ve used that have been integral on my journey to achievement.

    Protection isn’t always just a physical endeavor. In fact, those who operate at the highest levels understand that much of this game we play is driven by and is simply a manifestation of the technology we are running internally and behind the scenes.

    Without the right software, your hardware is useless and so from time to time, I will simply dive deep into the armory of my own heart and mind to expose and share with you all things that I believe are some of the most important components to success in life and the protection of your purpose on this planet.

    At the end of the day my goal is to make, help, and contribute to the fostering of protectors on this planet and that means the cultivation of higher quality humans overall. There’s something for everyone in this episode and until we meet again I want to encourage you to; find your purpose, live with passion, and reach your destiny.

    Protector Nation Podcast EP8: Identify,Interrupt,and Restore

    Protector Nation Podcast EP8: Identify,Interrupt,and Restore

    Victor Marx is a very unique and amazing man and his story is one of restoration and metamorphic triumph on many levels. I actually met him at a marriage retreat years ago for the first time. Since then we bumped into each other on numerous occasions as we run around some of the same circles apparently.

    Nonetheless, when I first heard him speak, many of my perspectives were changed forever. He has a background in martial arts and has been hailed by the Guinness Book of World Records to have the fastest firearm disarm on the planet. A few of these things may have been partial claims to fame but truly all they do is get your attention and as you bring this amazing man and to focus you begin to realize that there is so much more strength, depth, love, and contribution coming out of Mr. Marx.

    Coming from a childhood laced with many different types of abuse, Victor has turned his life around and is now a world-renowned hero to children around the world for the many missions his organization conducts to snatch children from trafficking organizations. Nigeria, Cambodia, Iran, the West Bank, Iraq, Iran, and Syria are just a few places that Victor, his wife in their organization regularly conducts operations to save lives and rehabilitate victims.

    I have much respect for Victor because he's a godly man that puts more than his money where his mouth is, he puts butts in seats and boots on the ground behind his God-given mission and he seems to do it with the right heart and I think that's all that even God can ask a man during his time here on Earth. This is an example of a protector on many levels, there is something in here for everyone, including some amazing stories from life out in the field and around the world… ENJOY!
