E140: Spy Craft and Executive Protection Tactics Every Prepper Should Know

In this episode, we’re joined by James Price. We sit down to discuss the three things every prepper should know, but probably hasn’t even thought of.

You see there’s a lesson James taught us a while back: If the situation turns to violence you’ve lost.

So who do you keep a situation from turning to violence and flip adversaries to your side?

And if a situation spirals out of our control into violence, how do we protect our kids and loved ones like pro-executive protection contractor?

    This is a killer killer episode. I’m so all over much of these learning resources.

    I’m also feeling really inspired to book onto one of James courses… I need to email him to see if stuff can be tailored to the the fact I’m from the UK, and our situations of civil unrest will see me without firearms!

    Feeling very inspired from this episode!
