Happy 2018, Y’all!

The Crossover Show - 137

Happy 2018!

In this episode the Police and the Fireman catch up on events since they saw each other before the holidays.
They cover holiday shenanigans, events, kid trouble…you name it. Unless you spent New Years Eve in a strip club.  The boys had a few weeks off and end the show with an actual topic! Amazing!
This episode is dedicated to Pete Miramontes. Your fight was well fought, sir. You’ve earned your rest. Your family and your legacy are secure.

Merry Christmas from #TCS!

The Crossover Show - 136

In this episode, MC and HM celebrate some Christmas. The guys wax philosophic about holiday plans, traditions, and whine about their busy schedules (as they are wont to do) and let you down easy with announcement that episode 136 will be the last of 2017!

This episode is in no way brought to you by Alexa or her human sycophants at MCPD. In related news, MC got him an Alexa and he’s diggin’ it.

Not to worry, friends! HM and MC will be back and stronger than ever in 2018!

Three Discipline Sponsors – Kosher or Corruption?

The Crossover Show - 135

In this episode, HM and MC discuss Mesa, Arizona, and their plan to advertise on the side of Fire Engines. MC is against it, HM is for it but they uncover a mine field of problems they hope Mesa has thought of ahead of time.
But why stop there? Why not an ad for a tow service on a traffic cop bike?
See? Problems…

Has Video Killed the Radio Star?!

The Crossover Show - 134

They say that video killed the radio star but as far as the guys can tell…it ain’t helping all that much. In this episode of a cop and fireman having a beer and solving the worlds problems they discuss exactly what all the video is supposed to be doing for us. Everyone is taking video…what is it for?

The guys discuss MC showing video of a traffic violation in court, to a judge.
They also discuss a video from Statter 911 where a citizen live streams a fire response (and hilarity ensues)!
Is video even worth it if it isn’t being used properly?

Does your confidence exceed your abilities around the homestead?

The Crossover Show - 133

In this episode, MC and HM discuss how first responder personas and their inherent confidence/arrogance may land them in some proverbial (or possibly literal if we’re talking plumbing) hot water around the house.

What about you? Do any of your work experiences and your relative confidence surrounding them translate into possible problems for you at home?

On a side note, apologies for the lack of show last week! HM was traveling for the holiday and MCPD was rife with the flu. All of them. It was terrible.

Off-duty: Intervene or Be a Witness?

The Crossover Show - 132

In this episode, HM and MC discuss off-duty actions. What are their (and more importantly, your) requirements/policies/moral obligations for acting during a given scenario.

Also…what about Worker’s Comp should you decide to take action and sustain some kind of injury? Are you in your jurisdiction? Are you considered on-duty?

*Disclaimer: As per usual, review and adhere to your department policies. Take the things these two knuckleheads say with a grain of salt.

Mass Shootings in a Small Town: What are Your Resources?

The Crossover Show - 131

In this episode, MC and HM talk about the shooting in Texas that left over 2 dozen dead and as many more wounded.
The guys dive into what little is known about the Three Disciplines in the area and compare that to the Las Vegas shooting in October.
As always the conversation evolves (or devolves) and they’re back talking about what they’re reading and planning for the week.

#TapTapTime: The Latest Trending Topic

The Crossover Show - 130

In this episode, MC and HM create a new hashtag:

#TapTapTime

Sure, there’s other things they talk about, but to be honest…#TapTapTime is the best part of the whole damn show.

They’re overly proud of it.

The guys talk about trying to get out of jury duty, shooting at actors, and getting FM transmissions over your phone.

They’re all connected. Promise(-ish).

The Spooktacular Episode

The Crossover Show - 129

In this episode, MC and HM relive their childhood memories of the spookiest of days, All Hallows Eve.

Halloween, if you like.

Here’s a brief glimpse:

MC is ambivalent and HM actually makes his front yard a graveyard.

Also, they guys go deep intho their beliefs about the most underrated holiday in existence: Arbor Day.

You read that right.

Come join the guys as they wax all reminiscent.

Huddle up and (wait for it)…take a knee.

The Crossover Show - 128

In this episode, HM and MC take a knee. Well, actually they don’t. They record sitting down.

They don’t want to spill their beer.

This episode finds the guys discussing the recent folderol with the NFL, “protests”, and the Stars and Stripes.

Don’t be surprised, friends. The last ten minutes are spent arguing about which Batman movie is the best of the franchise.

See how those things dovetail? 
Welcome to The Crossover Show.
