There are tons of podcasts out there, some of them non LEO friendly, others simply not good. After our LET Radio Show & Podcast, here’s a list of other LEO, Veteran and 1st responder friendly podcasts you must check out.
In case you haven’t noticed, the podcast industry has blown up in recent years. Any topic you can think of; history, fishing, aliens… anything – there’s a good chance someone out there has a podcast about it.
The bad news is the market is loaded with low quality podcasts that lack direction and purpose. Many of these self-proclaimed disk-jockeys ramble on and on loosely discussing their topic and make very little sense.
Even more bad news, there are plenty of politically motivated podcasters who like to push the anti-police rhetoric. They cover topics like why police need to be defunded, how every cop is racist and the law enforcement profession is corrupt all together.
It is sad to hear but it’s a reality.
The Good News.There is hope. There are a handful of pro law enforcement, first responder and military podcasts out there who put out the good word about these noble professions. They show staunch support and aren’t afraid to say it.
The DTD podcast is a central hub for interviews. Host Dustin “DJ” Kelly has unique gift for booking some of the biggest names in the military and law enforcement community for a small market podcast (but growing quickly). With a background in military and law enforcement, Kelly truly understands the issues facing the LEO community.
Kelly told LET:
“Every episode, I try to show whoever maybe listening to a story from someone who is similar to theirs. I want to show listeners and people who support the show that times may be tough at certain points, but there’s always a way past them, when you’re done with that first career [in law enforcement], there’s always a second chapter.”
His devotion to the podcast craft is unmatched and is evident in the list of names he has already interviewed. Dustin is committed to interviewing fascinating guests and it will be fun to watch this podcast grow. Just remember to tell people you heard about it here first.
