This week’s episode is sponsored by Stephanie Osborn’s *Burnout*
Burnout is a science fiction mystery about a Space Shuttle disaster that turns out to be no accident. As the true scope of the disaster is gradually uncovered by the principal investigators, “Crash” Murphy and Dr. Mike Anders, they find themselves running for their lives, as lovers, friends and coworkers involved in the investigation perish around them. What happened to the Shuttle? Who is responsible and why? Why is the government calling it an accident? Why is someone willing to kill to keep it a secret? And how big is the conspiracy?

This week’s episode is brought to you by Dave (D.J.) Butler’s Witchy Eye

Sarah Calhoun is the fifteen-year-old daughter of the Elector Andrew Calhoun, one of Appalachee’s military heroes and one of the electors who gets to decide who will next ascend as the Emperor of the New World. None of that matters to Sarah. She has a natural talent for hexing and one bad eye, and all she wants is to be left alone—especially by outsiders.

But Sarah’s world gets turned on its head at the Nashville Tobacco Fair when a Yankee wizard-priest tries to kidnap her. Sarah fights back with the aid of a mysterious monk named Thalanes, who is one of the not-quite-human Firstborn, the Moundbuilders of the Ohio. It is Thalanes who reveals to Sarah a secret heritage she never dreamed could be hers.

Now on a desperate quest with Thalanes to claim this heritage, she is hunted by the Emperor’s bodyguard of elite dragoons, as well as by darker things—shapeshifting Mockers and undead Lazars, and behind them a power more sinister still. If Sarah cannot claim her heritage, it may mean the end to her, her family—and to the world where she is just beginning to find her place.

My top 10 YouTube channels for learning to shoot/carry better.

I got into a discussion the other day about good YouTube resources to get educated on gun stuff. It is a travesty that there are some great, super knowledgeable instructors who post valuable advice and then get 3,000 hits, while some dumb ass can pontificate about dumb shit and get 300,000, and the audience doesn’t even know enough to know that they’re getting terrible advice.

So here’s a list of some channels that I think offer really good stuff to get you shooting better, or to help you with concealed carry tips. I’m putting these up for educational value, not entertainment value. I enjoy the hell out of Demolition Ranch seeing how many washing machines a Barrett can shoot through, but I’m talking practical/educational, and the fun channels already have huge traffic.

  1. Langdon Tactical
  2. Modern Samurai Project
  3. Lucky Gunner – especially their Start Shooting Better videos
  4. PHLster – the best source for tips on how to carry concealed in a way that’s effective, fast, and comfortable.
  5. Active Self Protection – about 30,000 videos of actual gun fights.
  6. Tim Herron
  7. Pat Mac
  8. Demonstrated Concepts LLC
  9. Paul Gomez
  10. Shiv Works

It’s already wildly popular, and not so much about competition or defensive shooting, but I personally love Forgotten Weapons. It’s an educational deep dive on a lot of very cool guns.

These others were suggested to me by shooters I respect/trust, but I’ve not watched much of them myself, Complete Combatant, Kyle Lamb, Lee Weems, Citizens Safety Academy, and Armed and Styled (I’m told this one is really great for new shooters).
