I find your programs very informative and inspiring. I look forward to listening to your STOG program Monday through Friday I would credit you for making me a better person and patriot. I strive to fallow you and your families example on how to be involved in putting this country back on track.”

“I’ve really enjoyed being involved in the grad program. I believe my money has been a investment into a program that I can learn from and put to a use in my daily life. I think the honey badger program is essential in today’s world and I’m grateful that I found out about it, I’ve started putting it to use with my 6 kids. The stand SOTG makes with guns being a instrument of liberty is not very common, I totally agree with it. Thanks for everything.”

“I may have been a few miles over the limit and crossed the laser of a county sheriff’s deputy, while listening to SOTG. He pulled me over I handed him my DL and permission slip (CCL). I guess officer has super hearing because he asked – are you listening to SOTG pod cast? Love that guy, He’s so subtle.” I guess my papers were in order and I got a “Slow it down and keep carrying. Have a nice day.” So SOTG prevents speeding tickets – who knew”
