The Standard of Care Podcast - Cross-over Episode: Reasonable Doubt
In this cross-over podcast, we are joined by our team from the Standard of Care Podcast. On 8/22/2021, a Colorado grand jury handed down a 32-count criminal indictment against the police officers and EMS personnel involved in the incident that led to Elijah McClain’s death. In this episode of the Standard of Care, Nick and Samantha try to untangle what these indictments could mean for the EMS community. We reach out to our resident experts - former prosecutor (now business lawyer) Chris Timmons and defense attorney (and Samantha’s law school classmate) Stephen Coxen – for answers. How do prosecutors even decide to file charges in a case like this? How does a grand jury work? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution’s case, and how does a criminal defense attorney defend a client against these charges? What can EMTs and paramedics do to protect themselves from potential criminal liability? You don't want to miss this episode. So much good stuff!

Crossover Episode: Vaccine Straight Talk - Part 2
Part 2: Bad information abounds. We wanted to get the band back together and give you a no-nonsense, non-political, non-biased easy to understand podcast about the COVID Vaccines (well, the mRNA versions) and talk about safety, efficacy, and everything else you wanted to know. We want you to be able to share this with your non-medical friends and family who may be on the fence when it comes to getting vaccinated. Thanks for continuing to support our podcast!

The top dog
I listen to a lot of podcasts surrounding paramedicine and critical care. This is by far the top dog in flight and CCT paramedicine. You have to listen to Eric and his easy to understand presentation of difficult concepts. I am a huge fan.
Great podcast, it has prepared me so much for my dive into healthcare.
Fantastic podcast! Really helping me stay engaged as I transition from EMS through nursing school. Really appreciate it.
