SEAL TEAM 6 VETERAN AND ‘CLEARED HOT’ HOST ANDY STUMPF TO FRONT NEW IRONCLAD PODCAST AND FILM SERIES ‘CHANGE AGENTS’ FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JACK CARR
This month, IRONCLAD is releasing its latest original franchise Change Agents, hosted by Andy Stumpf and executive produced by Jack Carr.
In each episode, Andy — a former Navy SEAL and host of the Cleared Hot podcast — takes an unfiltered look at one of the world’s most pressing issues – from sex trafficking and modern-day slave labor to large-scale big game poaching rings and political persecution in North Korea. He then sits down with a real-life agent of change who is risking it all to help those in need.
It’s a gritty deep-dive into criminal underworlds and off-the-grid places with guests that are on the front lines of some of society’s most dangerous crises.
“I’m excited to work with IRONCLAD on this new series to tell the stories of people really enacting change. Their team of filmmakers and podcaster creators really emphasize storytelling and authenticity, and that’s what is at the core of this show: Telling impactful stories about the issues facing our world, and the people who are actually doing something about them.”
The first episode releases on the IRONCLAD YouTube channel on March 27 and hits all major podcast platforms on March 28. But, the podcast and YouTube series are just the beginning.
“IRONCLAD is excited to have Andy signed on to host our latest franchise,” IRONCLAD CEO Jeremy Carey explained. “Each episode of the show exposes audiences to some of the most important issues of our time, and we’ve invested to make sure these often shocking stories are told authentically, with the hopes of bringing awareness–and hopefully, real change. Our long-term plan is to find the right streaming partner for the next iteration of the show – which will feature travel, adventure, and real-world investigations into the people and forces behind these crisis.”
Jack Carr, the No. 1 New York Times best-selling author of the Terminal List novels, executive producer of Amazon Prime Video’s Terminal List TV series starring Chris Pratt, and host of the IRONCLAD originals Danger Close with Jack Carr and The Terminal List Podcast, serves as the Change Agents executive producer.
“Andy is one of the most unique voices in podcasting,” Carr said. “His unflinching, no-nonsense approach to interviews makes him the ideal host for a show that takes a deep dive into issues that are impossible to ignore once you are exposed to the truth."
In the first episode, Andy sits down with Glenn Devitt. After medically retiring from the Army, Devitt went on to work with Homeland Security’s H.E.R.O. (Human Exploitation Rescue Operative) Program and was a Homeland Security Investigations Computer Forensic Analyst. Today, he is the CEO of the Sentinel Foundation, a group that works with international law enforcement agencies to bring sex traffickers to justice.
In the interview – the first he’s ever done – Glenn tells the disturbing truth about international trafficking rings and explains how he left Homeland Security to pursue the perpetrators of violence with fellow special operations veterans. It’s a gripping interview that audiences won’t hear anywhere else.
Change Agents joins a slate of original franchises that IRONCLAD is developing including Oil and Whiskey with Roadster Shop, Danger Close with Jack Carr, the behind-the-scene filmmaking series Into the Fray, Out There with Jeff and Jeri, Reborn with Ashley Horner, Mental Performance Daily with Brian Cain, and more.
