This weekend was heavy. So much fun was had but along with that.. a heavy realization that life has changed yet again. Joining me on my first night here at IDOBI Radio are my buddies, Poncho & Lefty. Ex-US Navy Seals turned contract Mercenaries with pure hearts of gold! These guys are the rockstars of the military world and I was and still am in awe after hearing so many of their seemingly endless experiences. This episode is like no other and just so happens to be the first of many here on IDOBI.

The tragic events of the Boston Bombing, shooting and manhunt have been front and center in the news all week. My thoughts have often been turned toward Boston and the victims of the bombing. I decided to have Mike Shea on the podcast to get his take on that and the politics behind it. We go deep down politics road. As usual I spare no one a diatribe about my distrust of our politicians. There was a problem with Mike's Skype connection cutting out in parts, but over all it's pretty good... sorry about that.
