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.

Grateful

Today was my first experience with this podcast. As someone with a parent and two siblings who are first responded, I am grateful that this podcast exists. Creating a safe space for people speak about pain and healing is important. Going a step further to check-in at the end of the podcast is brilliant. I gave this podcast 4 stars just because there is always room for improvement.

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.
