Welcome to the "Is It Just Me?" podcast with Layla K and MJ. This is the podcast about just about any topic where we ask the question, “Is It Just Me?"

Jan 11, 2023

Layla K and MJ are joined by Brian Townsend, former DEA undercover agent and founder of Eagle 6 Training, to discuss lessons in leadership he’s learned in arenas as different, and as similar, as cartels, Quantico and Corporate America.

Is it just me, or can we all learn a lot from Brian’s background, "retirement" at the age of 50, and real world experience with the current fentanyl crisis?

Be sure to follow Is It Just Me on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc., to never miss an episode. Fresh ones drop every two weeks.
