The Joe Rogan Experience - Episode 1800
Gavin de Becker is a leading authority on the prediction and management of violence. A three-time presidential appointee, he and his firm Gavin de Becker and Associates have provided protection, investigation, and threat assessment services for numerous high-profile individuals and organizations.
Gavin had a rough childhood that primed him for an extensive career in violence prevention and management. At a young age, he was working with major celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor. Then he worked with Ronald Reagan. It just doesn't get any bigger than that!
Most of the first hour is Gavin's story of forging his long career. So, going into the second hour we are ready to hear intriguing stories of assassination prevention and protecting major celebrities.
Instead, they talk about COVID-19 stats, mandates, and lockdowns.
A missed opportunity for sure, but it doesn't stop Gavin from being an intriguing and entertaining guest.
