About Everyday Espionage Podcast
Hosted by former covert CIA intelligence officer Andrew Bustamante, Everyday Espionage gives you practical, powerful spy skills you can use to get ahead in your everyday life.
There is no super power more powerful than getting people to do what you want. Every comic book hero and villain struggled because at some point someone resisted them. In this episode, you learn how to use the one power most people never understand. Whether you use it to be a hero or a villain is up to you...
Human beings have an inherent desire to be useful, but people are not all useful in the same way. Maximizing your success requires that you tap into the usefulness of others just as much as you lean on your own personal strengths. In this episode, Andrew shares a powerful hack that CIA uses to get the most out of every officer and human asset they recruit. WARNING: You cannot unlearn what you are about to learn...
We live in a society that gives gifts. Gifts were designed for two original purposes: 1) to show gratitude, or 2) to win favor. Since the dawn of mass marketing and hallmark holidays, however, gift-giving has mutated into something much less enjoyable and much less useful... until today. In this episode, Andrew gives you the 3 gift-giving HACKS that CIA uses to win favor, influence, and power. Whether you want to shortcut your next promotion or win over your lover, you are only 3 steps away from the perfect gift!
One thing spy movies get right is that every covert field officer is trained to drive like a badass! Elite operators use advanced driving skills (aka: vehicle dynamics) to escape capture, crash through barriers, drive at high speeds and even survive hostile attack. In this episode, Andrew lays out the rules for advanced driving and gives you the core skills you need to practice and perfect the same vehicle dynamics elite operators use to keep themselves and their families safe.
Nobody likes being ignored, and yet we ignore most of the people we meet. Have you ever wondered why? In this episode, Andrew gives you the ultimate life HACK to capture and keep someone's attention any time you want it. This is your chance to get into the mind of every client, customer, and date you want to win-over now and for the rest of your life.
Get ready to unlearn everything you were told by your parents, teachers, college professors and peers. Elite operators do not strive to be the best -- instead, they strive to be average. And you'll be shocked when you find out why. In this episode, Andrew breaks down how average goals can unlock elite performance in you today, through the new year, and for the rest of your life.
Learning from history means learning to predict the future. Massive changes in technology, economics, and world power have transformed mankind in unbelievable ways. Corporate and government leaders realize that; and they have a plan for the future. In this episode, Andrew explains what the world's elite are predicting and how you can use their knowledge to stay one-step ahead of your neighbor, your boss, and protect those you care the most about.
Every death in the field carries a cost and a lesson. The cost is paid in blood and tears, but the lessons are invaluable for saving the lives of others. In this episode, Andrew shares a powerful lesson in human instinct that was first discovered in the Vietnam War, trained into Special Operators, and even codified into State Law in Utah. This is science that saves lives, stops bad guys, and wins case law.
The wealthiest people in the world know that good news often comes out of bad news. And when you work with millionaires, you have to be ready for them to give you lots of bad news. Join Andrew as he shares a powerful lesson he learned from a room full of multimillionaires... even if you don't want to hear it.
Mentorship is one of the most important elements to your long-term success. But finding a good mentor willing to spend their time with you is not easy. In this episode, Andrew gives you the secret to find and win a great mentor. And even more important, he tells you what the wrong kind of mentor looks like, and why you may be working with the wrong mentor right now.
The most skilled drivers in the world don't have their photos plastered on NASCAR, F1 or even Rallycross websites and magazines. Instead, they hide in the world of covert ops -- a world ruled by Tier 1 MARSOC Raiders. Join Andrew as he shares a lesson from his Tier 1 MARSOC friend and fellow EverydaySpy instructor about hard lessons learned off the track...

The current conflict in Ukraine has topped headlines and commanded the attention of the world. And even as journalists dawn flak jackets in the streets and drones capture images overhead, the most inspiring stories aren't happening on the front line... they are happening in the shadows. Join Andrew as he share a story you haven't heard about heroes you don't know exist.
Elite spy agencies need leaders just like every other corporate organization. But the way they find and cultivate their leaders is very different than what you read about in leadership books and see advertised on your LinkedIn feed. In this episode, Andrew explains the simple secret to how CIA develops and trains their leaders to do what others can't and go where other's won't.
The greatest lessons you need to learn often get lost. People are either too successful to share their secrets, or they fail too fast and their experience is lost forever to history. In today's episode, Andrew give's you a peek into how one elite UK Royal Navy SBS officer has changed his life on his own terms. And how he views money in a way that most people do not...
Human nature drives you whether you like it or not. And the secret sauce to success comes when you stop fighting nature and learn to make it work for you instead. In this episode, Andrew shares a secret known only to Tier 1 operators, athletes, and soldiers; a secret that you can use to master your everyday life to win massive success.
Your brain does things without your permission. It is doing things right now that you did not choose; it's making choices you don't agree with... and it does it all without you even realizing it. In this episode, Andrew explains how your brain (and everyone else's brain) is a tool you can use to get an unfair advantage in your career, business, and social status.
The last week in December is a time when people everywhere stop and reflect on what they want to do differently in the new year. In this episode, Andrew shares a few success stories from the field and asks a different kind of question for you to consider. Whether you are in school or in business; raising a family or raising seed capital for a new venture, there is value in knowing one important answer before you ring in the new year...
Justice isn't always simple, clear, or fair. Sometimes justice happens in ways nobody wants to admit or talk about. In this episode, Andrew shares a story where justice was delivered in a way nobody would expect, in a part of the world very few get to see. And with the right combination of pressure and patience, justice always prevails...
Human nature is slow to change. That makes it a powerful and predictable advantage for you to use in your career, relationships, and business. In this episode, Andrew shares two current examples of how human nature gave one person an unfair advantage while leaving another person behind in the game of success. When you learn how to transform your need into value for someone else, you unlock incredible power, money, and influence.
