During the course of a conversation with Kris “Tanto” Paranto, it became apparent that the phone interview I was conducting for an ARBuildJunkie article might work better as an audio podcast. Having had conversations with many in the AR world over the past few weeks, It’s content I think more than a few of us might like to hear.
With Kris’ permission, we’re publishing the audio of our interview in its entirety. Topics discuss the importance of keeping a good sense of humor, how to keep a positive mindset, positive self-talk, the importance of family, demonstrating leadership under stress, avoiding panic, coping with the fear of the unknown, and what rifles and accessories he’s currently running.
