Roughly Speaking episode 428:

Aquil Bey, a retired Master Sergeant and U.S. Army Green Beret, says healthy relationships with co-workers, and being aware of potential problems, form the first lines of defense against violence in the American workplace. Bey served 22 years in the military before becoming director of security and safety for Under Armour. He now runs the Tailored Defense Training Group in Baltimore, training men and women in self-defense and in the use of firearms. In this episode of Roughly Speaking, recorded after a deadly shooting at the Rite Aid distribution center in Harford County, Bey talks about workplace safety and what employers and employees can do to protect themselves and others from the kind of violence that has erupted across the country at work sites, in places of worship, in schools and in concert venues.
