Great resource for learning about the many improvements to emergency response in communities

I found this podcast by accident as I was working on my masters degree in Healthcare Emergency Management (MS 5/23). I learn something new in every episode from from experienced instructors and experts in the field. I appreciate learning about what is being tried in communities to improve relationships using current research and a newer behavioral-based approach. This podcast is widely focused and not just the lens of emergency preparedness and response.
