Jon Becker, the CEO & Founder of AARDVARK Tactical, partnered with FPW to create, brand, and produce an inventive podcast on which Jon could invite guests from the industry to sit down with him and talk about leadership, lessons learned from previous experience, debrief critical incidents, and their chronicle sum of knowledge in the tactical industry. The compelling and thought-provoking stories that industry leaders share on The Debrief contain extraordinary information that isn’t easily found elsewhere. FPW helped Jon build this podcast from the ground up. Along with filming, producing, and editing the first episode, FPW also created a website for The Debrief and managed its social media and PR for the first season.
