I’ve been delinquent in writing this last month, but that is in part due to the fact I’ve been speaking a good bit. It just dawned on me today (as I age I can occasionally be slow-witted) that I could also post my podcast appearances periodically so those discussions are archived and available as well. Virtually all of these podcast and videos relate to self-preservation, applied violence, etc.
John Johnston hosts the Ballistic Radio Podcast and is also my teammate at Citizens Defense Research where we, along with Melody Lauer, provide training in self-preservation to the general public. John was gracious enough to invite me on to discuss a couple topics.
Primary & Secondary

Active Self Protection National Conference 2020
Active Self Protection has released some video excerpts from the Contextual Home Defense: Planning & Execution Seminar I presented in 2020. I break down the goals of home defense to be “avoidance, deterrence, early warning, and dominance,” and examine ways to achieve those goals in the various domains that affect our home security: cyber/online, away from home, immediately around the home, at entry points, and inside the home.
Mountain Man Medical
At the 2021 Active Self Protection National Conference, Brian McLaughlin of Mountain Man Medical asked me to sit down for a few minutes and discuss my experiences and perspectives from my time as a Special Forces Medical Sergeant.
Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus
I don’t think that’s everything, but it’s everything I can remember from the last couple months. Hopefully you find this content worthwhile. If so let me know in the comments. If there’s anything you’re interesting in me writing about in the near future, let me know that in the comments as well.
