In the vast, rugged terrain of Texas, where the stories of outlaws and the law are etched into the very soil, we find a beacon of knowledge in an unexpected place: the walls of a maximum-security prison.
My guest, David Stacks guest is a seasoned Texas prison warden, a guardian of society’s most dangerous individuals.
The retired Warden is now the Director of the Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville, Texas.
Having spent decades overseeing some of the most notorious criminals in the state, Stacks brings a wealth of insight into the criminal psyche.
But more than that, he offers invaluable tips on personal safety, gleaned from his years of experience amid danger.

For one thing, nothing good happens after midnight.
As we uncover these insights, we not only peer into the abyss of criminal minds but also learn how to safeguard ourselves in a world where unpredictability is the only certainty.
