Back to today's show.
You first heard from Michael A. Wood Jr. on Episode 4 of the podcast. If you haven't heard that episode yet pause this episode and go back and listen to it.
Michael is a Baltimore-based police reform activist who, after spending a career in the United States Marine Corps and Baltimore Police Department, has torn down the blue wall of silence. He has become a vocal advocate of a new era of civilian-led policing. While completing his doctorate studies, Michael works as much as possible with grassroots activism on the streets of Baltimore, where his most valuable lessons were learned, and makes media and speaking appearances to further the discussion on police reform and the needs of the people.
You can find him on Facebook and Twitter. You can find his website at He is also a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Their website can be found at 
Here's the GoFundMe page for Radio Revolver, the podcast network you'll hear Michael A. Wood Jr. discuss on today's episode: 
Here is the petition to hire Michael as Oakland, California or San Francisco, California Police Chief we discussed on today's episode: 
A quick programming note: In the 48 hours between when we recorded this on Wednesday and when it's dropping today, on Friday, the following news broke: Alton Sterling was killed by police on video in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Philando Castile was killed by police on video in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Five police officers were killed and seven were injured by a shooter in Dallas, Texas. You won't hear Michael and I discuss any of these incidents in this episode, but rest assured, the next time he's on we'll get to all of them. Still, this conversation is very relevant.
And now, on to the show.

And here's the Joe Rogan Experience podcast you'll hear mentioned in this episode:
