Description

It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

Iain Byrson has been on a harrowing and deeply moving journey of resilience, faith, and unwavering love. Iain’s story begins in 2004 when he met his first wife, Agata Makowska. Their life took a tragic turn when their daughter, Adelle, exhibited signs of severe abuse after a visit to Poland. Despite Iain’s desperate efforts to protect his daughter and seek justice, his cries for help went unanswered, leading to a heartbreaking separation and a relentless fight against a system that failed them. Iain's ordeal escalated in December 2010, when Agata took Adelle back to Poland under the guise of a visit, only for Iain to never see his daughter again. His relentless pursuit of justice led him to drastic measures, resulting in his imprisonment in Poland for fifty months. During this time, he endured severe conditions and fought for his voice to be heard, highlighting the immense challenges faced by parents in international abduction cases. Upon his release in 2015, Iain returned to the U.S., where he found solace in faith and continued his mission to expose and combat satanic ritual abuse. Today, alongside his second wife, Emily, Iain dedicates his life to advocating for victims and standing against the darkness.

We are back again with a role reversal, turning the microphone towards the man usually behind the scenes – show producer, Michael Shelton. I never know where these conversations are going to lead, since I am turning the questions over to Michael, a man with an internet search history that has likely landed him on a variety of watchlists. There was absolutely no structure to this episode, we covered everything from FBI agents doing back flips and losing control of their pistols, Leaders in the government getting caught soliciting for sex in airport bathrooms, street fights, and everything in between. It is always a wild journey, I hope you enjoy it. The Speed of War Comic Series: https://www.thespeedofwar.com/ Check out the newest Cleared Hot Gear here: https://shop.clearedhotpodcast.com/

Josh grew up in Lincoln, Montana on the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness. At the age of 11 Josh’s baseball coach, Rick Dunkerley, began teaching him how to make knives. In the very beginning, Josh would go to Rick’s shop where he learned to remove stock blades under the guidance of Rick. About a year later, Josh began putting a shop together at his home. Josh’s Dad gave him room to work in his equipment shop, and at the age of 12 Josh joined the American Bladesmith Society. Over the next few years Josh began forging and honing his craft. Josh turned 14 at the Eugene Oregon knife show where he met other incredible knife makers, all too willing to share their talents and knowledge with Josh. At 15 years old, Josh passed the Journeyman bladesmith test in Atlanta, Georgia at the Blade Show. Josh became the youngest bladesmith to ever pass this test. The Journeyman test is a two part process. A test blade must be forged and heat treated with the capabilities to chop a 1” rope in half, 2- 2x4’s in half and then still shave hair. Once the cutting tests are done the blade must be able to bend 90 degrees in a vise without breaking. After passing the performance test the maker must present 5 knives to a panel of Mastersmith Judges. Each knife is examined closely to ensure the knife is made to the highest standard of craftsmanship. At the Journeyman level a maker is not expected to show perfection but is expected to show a sufficient level of craftsmanship expected from a professional bladesmith. Josh continued to work on his craft and at the age of 19 he earned his Master Smith rating from the American Bladesmith Society. Josh was the youngest bladesmith to ever pass the Master Smith test. In 2002 Josh moved to Frenchtown, Montana where he now calls home. Josh and his wife Jessica live on a beautiful piece of property near the Clark Fork river. They have 3 daughters and 1 son that are active in sports. Josh coaches the youth tackle football team and a youth girls basketball team. The Smith kids raise cattle and hogs in 4H in addition to their sports. Jessica is the customer service and fulfillment manager for MKC.

The girls in this podcast are actually just stupid. They are not capable of thought. I think they tend to look at prisoners as some sort of social project that they can improve upon. It's like a rescue dog for them. They think they have done something great because they have helped rescue a dog instead of getting one and raising it correctly.

the only thing I would add is that, that young man talked to God and God told him, "what ever happens after this is in God's hands now." God saved that man's life, not you young man. keep talking to God and surrender it to Jesus completely.

love the podcast but your comments on addiction come from a place of privilege. If addictions were merely a choice, I suspect that most would choose wisely. It's far more complex than you appreciate. Mental health, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, family history so often play a role, and make overcoming addiction so difficult.
