Taahhh ,

Awesome!

I am still in my paramedic program in NC (USA) and have been listening to this podcast for the past year! Hyped that you guys put out some new amazing podcasts! listening to the traumatic arrest podcasts this morning. Phenominal. I just finished a paper on the trauma triad yesterday and this hits it along with many other good notes well. Thanks for everything you guys! You provide me with a better outlook on my patients and my treatment plans daily. - Matt
