While browsing Instagram, a video that Karis had posted of herself, caused me to reach out to her about coming on the podcast. At first I wasn't sure what the video was about and then I read the caption….

And then it made sense.

Listen to this episode and hear the story behind that video and here how Karis the situation has affected and altered her life.

[01:49] Lead Off Question – “Why Law Enforcement?” Karis explains that she was working as a dispatcher, but it didn't pay enough. NOPD paid very well for new hires, so she made the jump to the other side.

[08:02] 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.

Hear Karis and I discuss the event that caused her to leave the profession after only 4 years.

[25:00] Random Seven – These are seven, totally random questions that I asked Karis. And they're all electronically created.

Believe it or not Karis says she would do this one thing, even if she didn't get paid to do it. The funny thing is, had she not experience the things she went through while on the job, she probably would not have any interest in this.

[32:01] This or That – This is my version of a speed round.
