EP 38 – If I Didn’t Have Bad Luck I Would Have No Luck At All – Officer Jerry D. Lund
Jerry D. Lund has 30+ years as a first responder. The incredible thing about Jerry, is that he's both a police officer and fire fighter… And his department is not a “public safety” department.
If you suffer from depression, PTSD or any other mental health situation as a result of being a first responder. Then I encourage you to listen to this episode and hear Jerry's story.
01:46 – Lead Off Question: Why law enforcement is the first question I ask each guest. But in Jerry's case, it's why law enforcement and why firefighting.
10:01 – Dig Deeper: This is where I pick several posts from the guest's social media and form questions around those posts.
I usually select several of the guest's social media post to craft questions around. With Jerry there was only one post I chose to focus on and it had to do with him wanting to take his own life.
35:15 – Random Seven: Here I use an app to create 7 totally random questions. Here's the list of questions I asked Jerry:
- What’s the number thing at the top of your bucket list?
- Complete this sentence with anything other than your job title: I am a _________?
- Have you ever given a present to someone that they hated or disliked?
- Have you ever gotten anything autographed, if so by who and what was it?
- What 3 things would you leave in a time capsule for someone to open in 50 years?
- Do you avoid conflict with your partner?
- Would you rather your mom or your boss get a copy of every text you’ve sent and received?
41:45 – This or That: This is my “Rapid fire” round. I give the guest two topics and they have to select one over the other.
- Apple or Android
- Leather Jacket or hoodie
- Midnight or noon
- Books: Digital, hardback or paperback
- Flat tire or run out of gas
- Television series or movie
- Broccoli or green beans
- Beach or mountains
- Call or text
- Roller coasters or bumper cars
