Outstanding podcast

Believe it or not I just found you last week. I love the shows and the work your doing. Keeps up the great work and thank you for doing what you do.

I’m hooked

At this point I’ve listened to about 30 episodes. I found this podcast when searching for one to listen to to inform me about my future in law enforcement. There’s so many aspects of not only law enforcement, fitness, mental challenges a lot of us have and so many great guests on the podcast talking about their background.

Long Overdue Review

To start this review is overdue by about 3 years so bear with me, it might be along one.

This podcast has been with me throughout the enitre to start to my LE career; from when I first became interested in LE, to when I became a reserve, then a CSO, and now am on the threshold of becoming a sworn officer with the same department.

Garrett has created something wonderful, inspiring, encouraging, and real. He shares his struggles and his triumphs in all aspects of life both inside and outside of LE. Garrett introduces knowledge and resources that are absolutely invaluable for anybody working in the first responder field or in military service.

Garrett's service to the community goes beyond just this podcast and the social media community (which is incredible and supportive). Garrett will personally respond to messages or emails and these responses are personal, thought-out, and welcoming.

While in the academy, I reached out to Garrett for his take on a subject I had to write a research essay on. I received a response in record timing and had an email conversation back-and-forth with him aobut the subject. I have interacted with him a number of ways throughout the years and he has always been genuine.

Garrett, thank you for creating such an amazing source of information and community.

Take care of yourself and stay safe brother.
