Amazing Host!! Amazing Podcast!!
Jon Saunders does an amazing job with his Podcast!! Great guests and subject matter!! If you are a First Responder do yourself a favor and listen to The Fire Inside Podcast. Also, consider having Jon speak at your event or training!! I met him at The Illinois Firefighter Peer Support Symposium in 2019 and again in 2020 where he did the Keynote. Amazing and motivating!!
Excellent as training material also
