Best Medic Podcast Out There
I’m a big fan of this podcast, I listen almost every shift. In particular I loved the episode AntiFragile. It was the first place I ever heard the concept and I fell in love with it, it was total mindshift for me and I’ve been sharing it with as many people as I can.
Thanks for all the work you do and for making such an awesome show, and please don’t stop! 🙂
Raw & Relatable
I started listening to this podcast when I was still just tossing around the idea of a career in EMS and it has turned out to be one of the most inspiring and supportive outlets I have found thus far. Ginger makes me feel like I’m sitting in the room taking part in the interviews first hand. The honest revelations of each guest ensure that you do not feel alone in the common and uncommon struggles of EMS.
I’ve listened to many different emergency medicine podcasts, but none of them speaks to the mind of a paramedic quite like this one.
