[01:38] Lead Off Question – “Why Law Enforcement?” Brady explains that he knew further his education after high school was not in his immediate plans, so he joined the air force and became a MP.

And like high school, he wasn't crazy about the air force, but he loved being a MP. So when he got out of the military, he decided to continue in law enforcement as a contracted marshal and eventually moving on to become a deputy sheriff.

[15:09] Dig Deeper – This is the part of the podcast were I dig into the guest's social media and I craft questions around 2-4 of those posts.

Brady says that he try's not to live with regrets, but there's one decision that he really regrets making… You'll never guess what it is.

[31:41] Random Seven – These are seven, totally random questions that I asked Brady. And they're all electronically created.

LOL you'll never believe the conversation Brady and I had about breakfast cereal. You're probably asking, “why do I what to hear you guys talk about cereal?” Trust me, the question I asked Brady will have you pondering the answer.

[41:12] Flip The Script – This is where the guest poses a question to you the listener and Brady actually had two questions: (Leave your answer below)

  • “Give me a fiction and a non-fiction book. That you think any cops should read?”

[43:10] This or That – This is my version of a speed round.
