WYE is the podcast that responds to all emergencies on and off the job. This podcast covers four core areas of life: Physical, Financial, Emotional, and Professional. Inside each of those cores lies four phases of an emergency: Education, Preparation, Response, and Recovery. Through each core, WYE will offer different perspectives on each phase. Industry and Subject Matter Experts will offer their guidance on how best to leverage possibility and maximize results in each of the four areas.
WYE Special Concert Edition
They say to never meet your heroes because you'll feel let down.
I'm here to tell you that ain't always true. After beating back Covid, MC and the family were able to make it to their favorite event of the year: Strawberry Music Festival.
While waiting in line to have one of his favorite artists sign some vinyl, MC and MClet #3 were gifted a one-of-a-kind item by the aforementioned artist, Steve Poltz.
Poltzy was handed a flash drive of his epic, near two-hour set, and he ultimately gave it to MClet #3 and told MC, "You should put it online!"
Consider this that, Poltzy!
Friends, enjoy one of this country's best songwriters, story tellers, and guitar players in this special concert edition of WYE!

How to Combat Overwhelm
Both MC and HM got the 'Rona last week (thus the absence...apologies).
At any rate, this week sees the boys feeling loads better and at the Strawberry Music Festival. Consequently, no new episode. Instead, however, you'll get a bonus episode that is from MC's Badges & Budgets podcast!
When you face a significant task with lots of moving parts, it can be quite overwhelming.
Ever sit in your patrol car and look at the pending details and think, "Well...guess lunch won't be a thing today."
While those days definitely happen, there are ways to strategically tackle them...and your finances are no different.
In this episode, we'll talk about eating some weird animals and how that relates to taking control of your money.

Everything's Bigger in Texas...Except Cop's Waistlines.
Yes, you read that right. Everything is bigger in Texas, except your belt, apparently. Wyoming says no.
We all know slugs on the job in Fire, Police and EMS but can we really judge a person’s fitness simply by the size of their waistline? Texas DPS says yes.
Listen in to see what the guys think and take a peek at this article which lists law enforcement as the most obese profession in America. Before you laugh too hard, fellow firefighters, we tied for second along with Security Guards.
Underlying point about all this? Sometimes rules are stupid and sometimes we need to take a hint and maybe skip the 2800 calorie “coffee” drink in the morning and walk the dog an extra day this week.

Stump HM & MC - Face to Face Cop vs Fireman!
As HM opened his computer, ready to stump law enforcement expert MC, there was a sly smile from across the recording studio. MC has prepared his own 3 questions to try to stump HM with stories from EMS, Fire, Military, Police and Disaster Preparedness.
The questions go back and forth in a fury, seeing new records in correct answers by both contestants! Which can you get right?!
Well, how did you do on our quiz? Did we stump you?

WYE in the News - Atlanta Bank "Robbery" and Traffic Quotas
Every now and again your hosts look at the news and think...hmmm...that's weird. As experts in their respective fields it can be odd to read a news story then dig a little deeper to find out what's really going on.
This week MC has scrubbed a few stories to share that really had him wondering what else is going on.
First stop is Atlanta, GA, where Director of Black Panther 2 Ryan Coogler was mistaken for a bank robbery suspect. Maybe "mistaken" isn't the right word, maybe "accused of bank robbery while trying to make a withdrawal at his own bank" is better. However, MC put on his thinking cap (not a motorcycle helmet) and shares his views about the story.
On the heels of that story the guys discuss a new law in Virginia that outlaws traffic ticket quotas. Imagine MC's response when he hears that a thing that isn't a thing is now not a thing because of a law. I know that's hard to understand, but so is this story from Virginia. MC shares his thoughts on quotas and the guys discuss performance evaluations vs quotas and MC's favorite phrase "Speed Trap."
This week we learn:
How race can be used in the headlines to draw emotional responses from readersIf Bank of America has a policy regarding customers withdrawing moneyWhy traffic ticket income as an incentive is an urban legendThat next week's show is going to have something new and fun!X3 Bar - The ONLY gym gear you need Slash your workout time and triple your gains.

Oh no, bad words…?
I noticed the explicit tag has been resurrected from the Crossover Show Days. And might I say, thank goodness.
The conversations are still professional(when warranted), but feel more organic to the way those in the disciplines actually speak to each other. Thank you!
but definitely need to work on the new equipment. Sounds way worse, and way too quiet and distant. Thought MC had called in. Had no idea they were in the same country, much less in the same room
MC and HM are doing a great job with this new, spinoff podcast! If you liked their original podcast, you won’t be disappointed. I highly recommend listening!
