What started out as just a couple of guys who wanted to talk about concealed carry, self-defense, and guns has actually morphed into something else entirely. And, what started out as one show, the Concealed Carry Podcast, has grown into a network of several other podcast shows, with countless listeners across many different platforms each month.
Without fail, the Concealed Carry Podcast has been recorded a few times each week for the past several years. And, along the way, we've added a few other shows to the lineup and I wanted to just take a moment to discuss these shows in greater detail.
Concealed Carry Podcast —
This is the show that started it all and has helped many gun owners and concealed carriers out in the way of understanding things like gun law, self-defense and defensive gun uses, shooting tips, and so much more. This show has kind of morphed along the way in content delivery, but not so much in terms of what is actually being delivered.
What I mean, is that now the show can be viewed on Facebook and YouTube, as well as listened to on your favorite podcast service. The bonus about watching is that you can see facial expressions of the hosts, as well as check out any products they're talking about.
Riley Bowman is the main host, but appearances from my buddy Matthew and our company president Jacob filling the seat of co-host happen regularly.
There are a wide range of topics spanning across hundreds of episodes and you're sure to find something that interests you.
Firearm Trainers Podcast —
The Firearm Trainer's Podcast is exactly what it sounds like … a show dedicated to the trainers in our industry. These trainers are basically people who teach other people how to shoot from beginner level up to teaching people how to shoot better in advanced levels.
These are people who are often an underserved segment of the gun industry. This podcast's host is actually one of our network instructors, Rob Beckman.
Rob is an NRA and USCCA certified training counselor and has received his Firearm Instructor Certification from International Association of Law Enforcement Instructors. The podcast episodes range in topic from helping instructors succeed, to creating new course material, to even helping the shooter get better.
And even if you're not an instructor there is likely content for you, too.
Not Your Average Gun Girls Podcast —
This one is geared more toward women, but there are plenty of dudes who listen, as well. This show has been on a bit of a hiatus as of late because one of the hosts was pregnant with a recent delivery, but I do assume that it will be picking back up soon.
Topics range from how to survive active shooter scenarios to how to carry a gun in fashion.
The hosts of this show are Amy Robbins of Alexo Athletica and Emily Valentine of Style Me Tactical and both ladies bring a ton of experience to the table.
Off Duty On Duty Podcast —
This is the relative newcomer to our podcast network. While there are only six episodes to date, I can say that the shows and topics are really good.
The host is Army Veteran and current police officer Bryan Eastridge, who is also the co-creator of the EDC Belt Company.
While this host is a cop, it's called Off Duty On Duty, for a reason: It isn't just about or for cops. There is some good stuff here, and the topics so far have a promising start and look toward the future.
You can listen to these podcasts on any of your favorite podcast apps, directly from your computer on the page linked to for each one, or, even better, download our free Concealed Carry Gun Tools App for your smart phone and listen directly in the app while you're reading our articles, shopping the site, loading your reciprocity map, or any of the other stuff we've got in the app.
