Show Notes

Podcast Notes: Brad Barker, CEO of The Halo Corp, joined us this month to discuss how they go about saving people from hostage circumstances and how they use social engineering in doing so. Here are some of the questions we asked Brad….

  • Do you recover things (objects, physical items) or just people?
  • Do they go after ALL recoveries or have they ever turned down a job due to it being too difficult?
  • What’s your recovery rate/history/record?
  • Do you have agents/employees/contractors stationed around the world on-call?
  • Do you have undercover agents that operate like spies?
  • How extensive is the HALO training?
  • What are your methods of recovery?
  • What are some cool high-tech toys you guys use?
  • Is it with local/federal law enforcement blessing?
  • Is it normally organized crime that has their hands in the kidnapping?

Keep in mind we are still trying to support our good friend Brad Smith and asking people to help them with their medical bills.. We will continue to update you on Brad’s condition and we appreciate all your help with donations.
