Firebugs and the Fourth Amendment

The Crossover Show - 096

In this episode, MC and HM discuss arson. Not like a how-to or anything (sorry, Firebugs), but rather who is responsible for what during an arson investigation.

Kudos to the Wife, Kaitlin Olson, and her show “The Mick” for being the impetus behind this week’s riveting episode.

The Crossover Show - 095

In this episode, HM and MC talk tech!

Drones. They’re all the rage. They’re the 21st century version of peeking over your neighbor’s fence hoping to catch the girl next door sunbathing.  (Like Fast Times at Ridgemont High…not a creepy registrant way. Sheesh.)

From criminal and traffic applications to fire applications, the guys go nuts for drones.

The Crossover Show – 094

Oh, Ohio.

Who does MC have to drag across the street by the shirt collar to get his point across?

Video surfaced recently from an Ohio incident that showed a  Police Officer “escorting” an EMT (Or Ambulance worker…sheesh) across the street, then against a patrol car following a medical call early in the morning.

As your brave hosts, HM and MC, discuss how to avoid these situations, additional footage was leaking out showing what led up to the EMT being removed from patient care by the Officer after tazing a patient being moved to a cot.  The Police Chief says the new video shows that “neither party is at fault.”  

Needless to say the boys were right on the money as to the temperament of the Officer having a HUGE impact on the scene as well as the public reaction to the aftermath.

Can’t we all just get along?

Take a Joke

In this episode, MC and HM discuss the subtle art of teasing. Not the ham-fisted, over-the-top hazing we see all too often.

The guys also discuss our new President, heretofore referred to as “Donny J” (you’re welcome), and his predilection for tweeting out incredibly amusing statements.

Members of the Three Disciplines are notorious for their collective sense of humor, but there’s definitely a way to make a joke…there’s also a way to take a joke.

It’s a subtle art, friends. The bottom line is simply this:

Don’t dish it out if you can’t take it

The Crossover Show – 092

In this episode, HM had a great topic surrounding the difference between good-natured teasing and ill-advised hazing as well as how to take a joke.

And then MC started making with the funny, court-related story of the day and the plan for the show went directly into the garbage.

Tune in to this week’s episode to have MC regale you with the most recent iteration of court shenanigans and the inherent entertainment therein.

Also this week, another go ’round with Ask MC! HM tortures MC with weird stories from across the First Responder Universe and quizzes MC about a missing fact. Spoiler Alert: MC is rarely correct.

ACLU, Cameras, and the Inauguration

In this episode, MC and the HM jump headfirst into the ACLU Washington DC PD body camera issue and somehow end up talking about CCTV, the First Amendment and why this kerfuffle is much ado about nothing.

MC is giving a speech from a teleprompter and HM is reading a manifesto about technology called You Are Not a Gadget.

Starting off 2017 with Gratitude

In this episode, MC and HM talk about gratitude. How do MC and HM keep a positive attitude (at least most of the time…I mean, they’re still human. Cut the guys some slack, would ya?!)

Here’s a hint:

You can make some significant steps towards positivity at the beginning and at the end of your day. Be intentional and you’ll be amazed at how fast your perspective changes!

Happy New Year you filthy animals!

MC and HM have shaken off the winter blues and jump right into the hottest story from the three disciplines: Cannelton Fire Chief led away from house fire in cuffs after shoving Deputy.

What does HM have to say to the LEO on scene?

Why does MC feel how he does about the Fire Chief?

Listen in and find out!


They also discuss Douglass Rushkoff’s Present Shock (even though HM screwed up the title) and how too many folks focus on the now instead of the future.

Adieu 2016!

In this episode, brief though it may be, MC takes the helm because apparently HM was too busy “working” or some such nonsense.

At any rate, the winner(s) [spoiler alert] of the Be the 50th Reviewer on iTunes Challenge is announced and Surprise! more than one fits the bill. Give it a listen to find out who the lucky fools folks are.

From both HM and MC, have a safe and festive New Year’s Eve/Day and we’ll catch you in 2017!

My G-g-g-generation!

In this episode, MC and HM discuss generations. Their differences. Their advantages. Their responsibilities.

Think Millennials are to blame for the current state of affairs of the Three Disciplines? Think maybe your our cynicism is a contributing factor?

MC and HM discuss attitudes of all generations and how those attitudes impact one another, our service as a whole, and the communities we serve.

Stay tuned to the end for MC’s rant (he does love a good rant, doesn’t he?) and wait for the ubiquitous mic drop.
