Listening to this podcast is like going home. I had my EMS beginnings in the south hills of Pittsburgh. So many familiar names among the guests.

I honestly know nothing about the field of medicine, but this podcast gives me a new level of respect and gratitude for the men and women who are our first responders. Their responsiveness to even the most disturbing experiences is inspiring to hear about. I recommend this podcast for walking your dog or sitting in traffic. These stories will give you a new a way of thinking about these men and women!
