I live in a real training “desert” for EMS, much less for backcountry rescue/medicine. Thank you for keeping me connected to the world I love!

Super lacking “interview”

Really hoped a few tough questions would be asked of Ken Wylie. Shocked the host didn’t even read his book in advance of the “interview”.
