About Us

Between the Lines is a podcast where we go beyond the badge to allow members of law enforcement, public safety, and first response a place to tell their stories and talk about the cases that have impacted their lives.

The production team consists of host Michael Warren, executive producer Aaron Bevill, episode producer Brent Hinson, and graphic designer Brandon Kettle.

We get to hear these stories through our job, but we should have a platform where these stories can be told.
