Educational entertainment at it’s finest

Learned a lot from these guys. They present information in a digestible, entertaining way. For those who grow irritable about tangents and swearing, you don’t sound like fun people to be around. There’s plenty of dry, informative, NPR style podcasts out there I’m sure you would love. What’s the point of putting a product out there that you don’t enjoy making? The way these guys present remind me of every great provider I’ve gotten to ride with. Thanks for having fun with it guys.

I have no idea what they are talking about!!!!

I’m not an EMT, I’m not someone who is going to school for any of those sorts of things, heck I build houses for a living. I listen to this podcast every single day though! It has peaked my interest in this field of work. I love it! I have learned so much even if I don’t know all the terms. If I ever became an EMT or paramedic of some sort, I would walk in so confidently knowing that I had EMS 20/20’s information on my side. I’m sure for the people who are in the field, this is really useful information! Keep up the good work guys! Hope you guys get to read this!

This podcast the perfect mixture of knowledge and light hearted fun

Ems 20/20 is a amazing podcast for multiple reason but I really enjoy how humble they are about there vast knowledge of emergency medicine. This is the podcast you learn 1-2 “pieces” of knowledge to throw into your treatment plan puzzle while also laughing till you can’t breath this is my favorite podcast in emergency medicine due to being able to listen to a episode without having to pause it multiple times to understand the topics to the depth of other podcast in emergency medicine do.
