In his first show Jim talked about domestic terrorism and its impact on America as well as the workplace. Jim began by discussing that Americans have a tendency to be too complacent because they have a tendency to forget an incident unless personally touched by the event itself.

From an historical standpoint Jim mentioned the 1910 bombing of the LA Times building as well as the bombing of Wall Street approximately 10 years later and pointed out the 8 warning signs of a potential active shooter.
Rounding off his discussion, Jim spoke about school shootings especially Columbine and Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Florida) and whether teachers should be armed.
