Episode Date
Ep. 012 - Tyler Merritt of NineLine Apparel

Tyler Merritt, CEO of Nine Line Apparel joins Beav and Alex for episode 12. As an Army Captain, Tyler was assigned to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Tyler was a special forces Apache helicopter pilot(yes for real) his unit was deployed more than any other special operations unit to this day. This gave Tyler a unique experience trying to build and keep moral with in his overworked team. Moral shirts were just the beginning as Tyler “fell” into the t-shirt business, and started Nine Line Apparel while still at war in 2012.

The Nine Line Foundation, a Non-Profit organization, was started in 2013 as an effort to give back to Tylers friend and West Point classmate, Captain Edward Klein, who lost three limbs while deployed in Afghanistan. The Foundation built CPT Klein a new home that is wheel chair accessible, as well as helping with the enormous rehabilitation costs. This would take Tyler and Nine Line down a path of passion to help those in need within the Military community.

Based out of Savannah, GA, The Nine Line Foundation has now started a community of 74 tiny homes called the Veterans Village. A place for homeless Vets to transition back into civilian working life. Not only are they given housing, Nine Line provides work training and skill building for the Veterans. All of which is volunteer based, meaning 100% of the donations go straight to those in need.

Among all of this, Tyler is also a father and husband that has struggled to find that elusive Work/Life balance. The guys get into what its like to be a deployed husband and father, VS now being a busy CEO and Non-Profit Founder.

All of this and more, on Episode 12 of the Tactical Baby Gear® Podcast.

Ep. 011 - He's doing it again...
In this episode the guys dive into Beav’s new(3rd time) personal mission to combat his Dad Bod. 
You'll hear about
• Nutrition
• Work out schedules, 
• What has worked and 
• What has NOT worked 
• & Beav’s hate for salad, AKA Rabbit Food. 

Beav has tried several times in the past to get into a regiment of "healthy" eating and working out, but with a busy schedule, 2 kids, and a second broken leg late last year, going to the gym has not been a priority.

With a new mental preparedness, Beav is ready to get back into gym and give it an honest go.

There is an old segment Tactical Baby Gear used to do called #askTBG, that answers viewers questions. We are bringing that back in a big way, so be on the look out on Instagram and Twitter if you have questions that you want to ask the guys.

There will be a lot of good info in those videos, so subscribe to make sure you don’t miss out.

Ep. 009 - Threenagers

Coming down off the high of Father’s Day, the guys are diving into the big topics of fatherhood: bedtime routines, why the terrible twos are nothing next to having a threenager, laying down the law when your kid won’t eat, dealing with kids being home over summer break, participation trophies and finding ways to spend time with the whole family. That’s a lot of ground to cover, but they also take time to answer a quick viewer question and reveal the long-anticipated return of one of your favorite TBG traditions.

Ep. 008 - The Manspot

Long-time friend of Tactical Baby Gear Vaughn Neville, aka @TheManspot stops by the podcast for the first time, so you know it’s going to get out of control. If you’re not familiar (and seriously, how are you not familiar?), The Man Spot is an Instagram force of nature, filling his feed with pure manly America.

The guys sit down with Vaughn to hear about his meteoric rise from door-to-door salesman to legendary influencer, and answer a few questions about parenting, how they met their wives, the death penalty (not related to how they met their wives, we should point out), keeping a marriage fresh, guns and… to be honest, once they get on guns, they kinda stay on it. But that’s what happens when The Manspot shows up.

Ep. 007 - Summer and struggles

It’s one of the greatest tests of parenthood – summer vacation. As they prepare for three whole months without school, the dads of TBG are talking about summer. A lot has changed since Beav and Alex were kids, and they’re inviting listeners to join in the conversation – what were some of the crazy things you did when you were a kid that you’d never allow your kids to do? Sound off online.

Speaking of which, the guys dig into the mailbag again to answer some viewer questions. Topics this episode run the gamut from how parents adapt schedules to summer, whether or not to vaccinate, their thoughts on paternity leave and more. If you’re expecting twins, you won’t want to miss this one, as Alex shares how he and his wife handled their own “buy one get one free” sale.
