“Thank you to the amazing Wayne Mulder for having me as a guest on his show On The Blue Line. This was such a great discussion about The Debrief, the origins of Aardvark and the Law of Unintended Consequences in decision making. If you do not already listen to Wayne’s show you are missing out on a lot of great knowledge.” – Jon Becker
On The Blue Line was founded and is operated by active-duty law enforcement to fulfill the mission of providing guidance, resources and community for law enforcement officers, first responders, and military personnel in their off-duty lives.

The recent active shooter events in Buffalo, NY, and Uvalde, TX, have once again driven many departments to question their own ability to effectively respond to an active shooter incident. As agencies are considering these capabilities, they frequently find themselves at a crossroads between choosing equipment and building a program.
The Debrief with Jon Becker podcast and website are now live!
After spending over four decades serving and protecting tactical industry operators, Jon Becker, CEO of AARDVARK and Project7 Armor, is teaming up with some of the world’s top law enforcement and military leaders to bring listeners across the nation true stories of highly effective teams. If you love podcasts on leadership, police podcasts, and SWAT podcasts, The Debrief is a show you won’t want to miss.
After founding AARDVARK at just seventeen, Jon spent thousands of hours training with the teams he served. At the same time, he attended law school and began working as an attorney in police litigation and civil rights. As AARDVARK grew and became more specialized, Jon has had the privilege of meeting and working with some of the world’s foremost tactical and military leaders. Today, those individuals are telling their stories on The Debrief.
The Debrief is a podcast for anyone who wants to develop their leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of how to manage a highly effective team. However, unlike other leadership podcasts, The Debrief forms its lessons on leadership through the real, lived experiences of law enforcement, police, military, and SWAT team members. And, unlike other law enforcement podcasts, The Debrief is aimed at everyone who wants to become a better leader, a better thinker, and a better person – regardless of the field or industry they’re in.
Learn more about the podcast on The Debrief website, or head to our YouTube channel to watch the first two episodes. You can also find The Debrief wherever you get your podcasts – including Spotify, Apple, and Amazon. For the podcast’s premier, Jon sits down with Charles “Sid” Heal, the late special tactics legend, former Marine CWO5, and retired Commander at the LA County Sheriff’s Department.
The Debrief is one of the best leadership podcasts out there today. We hope you’ll join us every two weeks as we become stronger leaders together.
