TacTangents is a podcast with a focus on identifying and mitigating risks in your everyday life; whether you fly a multi million dollar airplane or a desk, deploy overseas or to the grocery store. We also aim to grow leaders with a variety of topics on professional development.

Our hosts, a combat pilot and a K9/SWAT officer take us down paths to develop your situational awareness and preparedness for any situation by doing case studies and incident reviews in order to see the lessons learned and how to apply them to our daily lives. We also interview subject matter experts and first others with first hand expertise in their field to see how to better apply different concepts.

On our social media you can join the conversation in our Facebook discussion group which listeners share from their personal experience. We are @TacTangents on all the socials.
