In the first half of the show, President and CEO of the International Combat Martial Arts Federation (ICMAF), Bradley Steiner, talked about the increase of violence and personal assaults in the U.S. and what the average person needs to know about technical and tactical readiness for trying socioeconomic times. Regarding the rise of "Knockout Game" attacks, in which unsuspecting people are knocked out by sucker punches, "I think this goes with the overall decline in our culture," with psychopathic behavior on the increase, and victims being treated like objects for the amusement of the perpetrators, he remarked.
The best way to protect yourself from situations that you can't see coming is to maintain a high level of alertness, and environmental awareness, so that you're cognizant of what is going on around you, he advised. By knowing who is near you, you can avoid someone approaching you without your awareness, and thus be more prepared. That awareness alone often discourages an attempt for someone to prey upon you, as they are typically looking for helpless or oblivious victims, he continued.
Steiner highlighted the differences between practical self defense and close combat. Sports like judo or martial arts are not necessarily practical or realistic to use when one is being attacked. "You want simple skills that inflict very serious injury quickly," and should use those rather than trying to break free when someone has you in a hold, he recommended. He also addressed the problem of school bullying, and suggested that victims need to learn to fight back to preserve their dignity as well as their safety.
Appearing during the third hour, strategic visionary Jim Channon talked about evolutionary tactics and his remote viewing of the year 2075. Sixty years from now he foresees people living in a more natural setting-- a diversified countryside, not unlike the botanical oasis he currently resides in in Hawaii. "I think we're going to move back to that, but of course we'll be holding an android in our hand which will enable us to talk to Mars," he mused.
The last hour of the show featured Open Lines, including a caller who shared a disturbing story about a 7-ft.-tall man with black eyes (like a grown-up version of the Black Eyed Children), who somehow manages to hide out in the crawl space of her home and move objects around.
