The Sheepdog Project

People face threats of violence every day, ranging from large-scale terrorism to one-on-one assaults. Most people are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond effectively. This weakness in the flock allows the wolves to attack with great ease and success. There are a chosen few who have the courage to place themselves in harm's way between the wolves and the flock. They are known as Sheepdogs. Tim Kennedy, combat proven Special Forces Sniper, Airborne Ranger, and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Tim has dedicated his life to protecting others, and teaching the skills of both armed and unarmed combat to the next generation of Sheepdogs. Doctor Mike Simpson, former Special Forces Operator, Airborne Ranger, and battle-proven warrior with over three decades of military experience. Mike has made it his mission to save lives both on and off the battlefield, and to spread the ethos of what it means to be a Sheepdog. From Law enforcement officers and first responders, to Combat Veterans and Martial Arts masters, the Sheepdog Project explores every aspect of what it means to be a modern Sheepdog.

In this episode, Doc interviews Mark Tullius, the author of 25 Perfect Days, which was named one of IndieReader's Best Indie Books for 2013. An Ivy League graduate, Mark lists Chuck Palahniuk and Stephen King as the authors who most influence his own writing. In addition to his novels and dozens of short stories, Mark also has a blog which addresses a wide range of topics including mental health, fitness, parenting, and social issues.

Mark's passion for martial arts once had him competing in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Eight years after head injuries sidelined his training, Mark launched a project called Unlocking the Cage, a sociological study of why fighters are drawn to the sport of MMA, and why, despite actual and potential injuries, they continue to climb into the cage. Mark has traveled to 24 states, visited over 120 gyms, and interviewed 400 fighters and coaches from very diverse backgrounds. UTC is due to be released early 2016.
