[01:31] Lead Off Question – “Why Law Enforcement?” Ashley Merchant explains that like many, she got into police work because she was sick and tired of her previous job, working as IT recruiter.

[07:11] Dig Deeper – This is the part of the podcast were I dig into the guest's social media and I craft questions around 3-5 of those posts.

During this segment, Ashley talks about a post she made in memory of a co-worker who was killed in the line of duty.

[22:07] Random Seven – These are seven, totally random questions that I asked Ashley. And they're all electronically created.

Ashley shares the one thing, she would erase from existence if she could… And I have to agree with her.

[31:20] This or That – This is my version of a speed round.
