My partner and I constantly have EMS 20/20 on while on duty. We love listening to the calls and talking through them together.
By far my favorite podcast and so entertaining! Chris and Spencer make things so easy to understand and learn from🚑

All around FABULOUS podcast

I love listening to Chris & Spence. I feel like I’m right there, hanging with friends talking shop. I routinely LOL. Also, I learn something every episode (this coming from an experienced ICU nurse). Thanks for making us better & keeping us entertained! 💗🙏🏻

Awesome!

Chris and the Other Dude rock! I enjoy listening to them so case review, but in a positive manner. They don’t berate providers for mistakes, but provide insight how things might be done better. And they dig into the medicine and science beyond the analysis. It’s a great listen and I learn something I can do better from each episode. Cannot recommend it enough!
