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

Hi, new chaplain, and finding this an awesome way of understanding what I see, and appreciate the comments on how people deal with trauma and life issues. I have been able to suggest steps that you discussed. Thank you so much, Jon, your shows are always well planned, topical and well presented.
