“Tanto” is a man that really needs no introduction, but for the uninitiated, he’s best known as one of the contractors who served on the ground during the attacks in Benghazi. Kris is a long time friend to the podcast but it’s been a while since we’ve heard from him. We get into where he’s been, and his break from the spotlight as he purged all his social media and felt a need to get away from the public eye for a bit. As you’ll hear Kris get into, he’s not someone out searching for new gigs in media, but sometimes being in his position, a great opportunity presents itself. The latest being “War Heroes,” a docu-series created by Jack Thomas Smith spotlighting those who served in combat. We hear about the premiere for the series taking place in Succasunna, NJ tomorrow (February 28th) which you can attend, as well as a meet & greet with Kris. The details for that are up at WarHeroesTV.com.
We also hear about Kris’s charity work with 14th Hour Foundation, his training courses through Battleline Tactical, and his upcoming book “The Patriot’s Creed: Inspiration and Advice for Living a Heroic Life.” We get the former contractor’s take on recent controversies in the field both in Yemen and in Haiti. As usual though with Kris, we also share some big laughs. Since Kris is starting over with his online presence at the moment, be sure to follow his new Instagram @real_kris_tanto_paronto, as well as his new website KrisTantoParonto.net.
In addition to all that, we answer your emails sent to [email protected], and also get your reactions to “The Punisher” being cancelled on Netflix. We love hearing from the listeners. So strap in, this was a fun episode.
