Break Complacency ,

My Favourite Podcast

This is my favourite podcast. I love listening to Sean and his guests. Always so much wisdom and insight. If you are a First Responder or you love one - this is the podcast that can help you understand this lifestyle.

Adventure Coach ,

Filled With Great Stories

This podcast is a great place to learn from others while being inspired to create change in your life.

Les Card ,

All inclusive for tactical athletes

Listening to Sean from episode one of UpTalk has been a great experience. The episodes cover emergency responders, military and those that love/care for them. Sean has a line where he says the phone receiver weighs a ton when you decide you need to make that call for help. I always liked that quote, but until I experienced lifting that receiver, I didn’t realize how true it is. Thank you Sean and Tema for all you do and I look forward to many more episodes.
