    In reference to how he collaborates with 911-callers to put order to chaos:
    "It's like trying to jump on a moving train. You're not trying to stop the train or divert it, because the train has gotta go where the train's gotta go. You are just trying to get on it.

This podcast centers me

If I have a call that doesn’t go as planned or life in general is not going as planned I can put on Ginger’s show and feel SO much better just hearing her voice and usually learn something in the process. -New EMT and Wilderness First Responder

Best way to spend my time

I can’t think of an activity with more payoff to my professional, personal, and mental well-being than listening to the material that Ginger creates. I’m so thankful that our profession is creating material like this, and we need more of it!
