Episode 10: COVID-19 In The Wilderness
SARS-CoV-2 is a novel virus at the time of this episode, but there are already some lessons that can be applied to SAR responses involving known or suspected COVID-19 patients.

Episode 9: There Will Be Blood
Trauma care experts Sgt. Max Dodge, TP-C and Maj. Andrew Fisher, PA-C, join us to talk about backcountry bleeding: how to control it, what to do next, and why many of the common teaching points surrounding bleeding control have been taken out of context and misapplied. Max and Andrew also talk about their work with the National Stop The Bleed campaign, and the importance of educating lay people to be initial responders.
Episode 8: Online And Outside of the Box
Can wilderness medical training be done online, and if so, is it valid? What's the balance that should be struck between skills training and didacticism in a body of knowledge that emphasizes resource constraints?
We talk with Teal Harbin, a seasoned austere medical provider and founder of Base Medical, the company she founded to bring wilderness medical education to people who can't attend traditional in-person courses.

Wilderness medicine is exciting and inspiring, but it can also imperil our emotional well-being in big ways. We talk with mental health expert Brenton Queen, who works with responders in his capacity as a licensed counselor specializing in coaching, conflict, and stress.
