Lose the music

I love this podcast, but I can’t stand the music playing in the background while your talking. It literally makes me nauseas. It’s hard to focus on the verbiage of the podcast, I find the music too distracting. Please lose the background music, other wise a great and educational podcast !

Puts the ED life into perspective

Love this podcast. I am a newer nurse working the floor and it helps me understand further what life is like for our ED nurses and further appreciate them. It’s also a great resource to turn to if ED nursing is something you’re interested in as I would love to make my way down there in the future.
