Evolution Security Podcast

Jan 25, 2023

Our 100th show!  We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate this milestone than by having our two most important mentors on the show:  Mike Brown of the former Praesidium Group and Craig Douglas of Shivworks.

Topics:   Meeting Mike in the mid 90s, how he became such an important coach and mentor to Eric and Aaron; how he pushed Eric join the TPI forums and to take ECQC.  The Twins becoming a host to Craig for multiple classes through the years and how that relationship led to training with others in the Shivworks collective.   TPI and its influence on the current multidisciplinary realm and how forums have transitioned to video and social media.  Is this good/bad?  Who are folks in this multidisciplinary realm whom both Craig and Mike recommend and what makes great instructors.  Lastly, we talk a little gear, P365s, red dots, and some other fun topics to close out the show.
