What if you were locked up in jail but innocent? Zac Baker from A&E's "60 Days In"
If there was the prototypical guest for the Wait What If Podcast, Zac Baker would fit the bill. To say he lives "a life less ordinary" would be an understatement. What brought Zac to the show was his involvement in an A&E reality show in which individuals voluntarily locked themselves up in jail to help better understand the system and hopefully fix any problems experienced first hand from an inmate's perspective. To me, this sounds like a nightmare! To Zac, it was a walk in the park. He discusses an innate, almost genetic draw towards service and leadership which has led him from the battlefields of Afghanistan to the Police academy. Life has a way of throwing us curveballs but Zac has a knack for overcoming adversity and turning everything into opportunity!
Zac discusses how this experience changed his life and how it set into motion the desire to reach out to fellow veterans who may have made poor decisions but can come back from the low points with a little guidance and camaraderie.
