Harry Connick Jr. now has a talk show

(I had no idea either.)

Harry Connick Jr tapes up ex-CIA agent

I was asked to appear on the show and had some fun teaching Harry survival techniques that could get you out of a jam.

If you’d like to see Harry escape from duct tape and learn how to escape from a position criminals often use during home invasions… check out the short video below.

(You’ll see that Harry is a rather funny guy… he’s also very claustrophobic.)

The Mailbag


From Jan L: I do wish I had found your blog before today! I had spent most of 2016 suggesting to my friends that they “choose your candidate and write his/her name in; do not settle for the lesser of two evils… A sense of “feeling validated” came to me while I read your words, as I value your work, your good sense, and your opinions.

A: I appreciate your feedback and support. This election cycle has been interesting to say the least. Unlike a lot of people, I’m very optimistic about 2017 and think it’s going to be a great year.

From Jeanne R: Do you have an abbreviated version of Spy Week?

A: We don’t currently, however, we can do private group training where you pick the specific training you would like and we do this often with corporations. For more info on private group training send an e-mail to

From Jon L: When will your SurvFilter 300 become available again?

A: We will have more available at the beginning of April.

From Richard K: What is a good way to dispose of my computer’s hard-drive?

A: First, boil the hard drive for about 10 minutes. Then smash it up with a hammer into many different pieces. After that, dispose of the many different parts in different trashcans so they aren’t together. (Yes, this takes work but it’s the best way to erase your personal data on the drive.)

From Kelly T: I purchased your online Two-Second Survival course a couple of years ago but I can’t remember what the website to login to watch the videos, can you give me that?

A: You can log into your account by going to To learn more about 2-Second Survival click here.

From Travis L: I’d like to purchase a 2 day spy school course for my wife as a surprise birthday present. Currently our travel schedule conflicts with the March 31st date in Las Vegas. Will you be offering this, or other options in 2017 that I can consider?

A: As of now, this is the only Spy course we have scheduled for 2017.


Stay safe,

    Hey Jason,
    Loved your newsletter article on being a bodyguard to a celebrity, and using non verbal communication (hand signals etc ). Years ago, back in my college days I was working nights as a bartender in a less than upscale establishment. The cocktail girls, bartenders and bouncers had our own set of signals. (We called it bartender battle language) . If a waitress pulled on her ponytail (if she had one or not) , that was a signal to come and rescure me from a customer that was too close, too touchy or at least too monoplizing of her time…, If some one put two fingers over their watch, that was a signal for the bouncer to stay close. We had other signals for when a manager was nearby (So we didn’t get caught pouring that)pretty girl at the bar a free drink.) As I recall, we had at least ten different “signs”. Now a days, my wife I and i use almost the same system if we are at a party or some function where “a rescue” is needed. It’s also nice to have a “I love you” sign” to let them know your thinking of them when they are across the room or engaged in other activities.

      That’s great to hear. It just goes to show that you don’t need to be a spy to put these skills to good use.

      Stay Safe!

    Thanks for all you do! I’m a younger female and am pretty lightweight. Watching your videos and reading your articles, I feel as if I have more control if I was ever in a compromising situation as what I lack in physical size I make up for in knowledge so for that I want to say thank you.

    • Jason Hanson says:


      Thanks you. Your comment lets me know that I am reaching people and accomplishing my goals of empowering them.

      Stay Safe!
