 Talking Lead 437 – Stolen Angels: A Fight Against Human Trafficking | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:11:49 In this episode of the Talking Lead Podcast we take a look into the dark, seedy, real world of human trafficking with author and world-renowned private investigator William (Bill) Johnstone Taylor. Bill brings his fifty plus years of real life "been there, done that" experience to his fictional novels, Stolen Angels, Homeward Angels and San Andros Fault. We discuss Bill's years of service in the United States Marine Corps, his investigative duties during his time with criminal defense attorney F. Lee Bailey and his life's mission of find missing persons tied to the criminal world of human trafficking. Bill Taylor's novel Stolen Angels is a thriller from the start. Each chapter draws you deeper and deeper into the twisted international, criminal and political world of human trafficking. Bill's style of writing offers the reader a front row seat, fighting side-by-side with the main character Jake Storm as you take down the dastardly evil-doers. Technically sound with his character's use of weapons, aircraft, boats and other tools of the trade, Bill brings a since of realism that can only be obtained by someone that has lived these experiences. Once you start the journey with Jake Strom you will not be satisficed until you both complete the mission. William Johnstone Taylor / Talking Lead Podcast William J.

 Talking Lead 436 – Lever Action Rifles: Steve Tyliszczak, Troy Storch & Pete Pi | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:17:38 In this Talking Lead episode we talk Lever Action Guns. Special guests: Steve Tyliszczak owner of Mad Pig Customs, Troy Storch owner of Midwest Industries and Pete Pi owner of Defiant Munitions. The lever action has been around for nearly 200 years. This iconic "Wild West" gun predates use in the U.S. Civil War and is still manufactured today by companies like Henry, Marlin, Rossi & Winchester. As technology grows by leaps and bounds, daily, this design has stayed true to it's original, for the most part. Enter Midwest Industries and Mad Pig Customs. MWI and MPC, while not changing the mechanical operations of the lever gun, have given new life to the lever gun by offering external features that have modernized the utility of this brilliantly designed rifle. Troy Storch, CEO of Midwest Industries, developed a M-LOK hand guard that gives the ability to add optics, lights, hand stops, you name it. Steve Tyliszczak, owner of Mad Pig Customs, re-smiths the lever gun with MWI's hand guards along with a slew of other changes, including internal tuning, to craft a modern day "brush-gun" to rival all others. Specializing in Henry and Marlin lever rifles MPC will take your existing rifle and turn it into a survivalist's dream tool. Pete Pi with Defiant Munitions joins in on the conversation to lend his expertise on the ammunition side of things.

The 299 Days ten-book novel series written by Glen Tate, is a about the collapse of the United States.  The main character, Grant Matson, has a job that allows him to see what’s wrong with government. He realizes he needs to prepare for what’s coming and he does so.  His wife, Lisa, is reluctant to prepare because she thinks things are just fine.  When the civil unrest and political collapse hit in a dramatic way, it is undeniable that they need to leave their Olympia, Washington home and head to their cabin. Out at the cabin, a collection of amazing people assemble. They create their own community. There are no zombies or cannibalism; 299 Days describes a much more likely partial collapse scenario.

 Talking Lead 427 – AK KORNER S4 Ep2: Czech VZ. 58 Rifle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:08:19 This episode of the Talking Lead AK Korner is presented by Century Arms. Our topic is the Czechoslovakian vz. 58 (some times wrongly called the "CZ-58" as CZ did manufacture them) also known as the 7,62 mm samopal vzor 58 ("7.62mm submachine gun model 1958"). Joining Lefty this episode are guests: Paul Markel, Student Of The Gun; Curtis Halstrom, VSO Gun Channel; Andrew Breneman, Century Arms. Although the vz-58 externally looks very similar to the AK-47, it is it's own rifle and is nothing like the AK-47. Internally the vz-58 has a substantially different design that is based on a short-stroke gas piston. In fact, internally the vz-58 rifle has more in common with the Walther P38, Beretta 92, Brens, and Glocks than it does with an AK-47. No parts between the two rifles are interchangeable, not even the magazine. The vz-58 is smaller than the AK-47, the barrel (in non-US imported versions) is shorter and the width is narrower. The original furniture was made from a wood and Bakelite mixture known affectionately as "beaver-barf". Another feature the vz-58 has that the AK-47 does not is it's bolt hold open operation which allows the weapon to be reloaded from the top with striper clips without having to remove the magazine. Listen to the episode to get more interesting facts and opinions from the experts. "Leaducating The Unleaducated" since 2012 -Talking Lead Podcast
