The technique and concentration in the edited audio are now also consistent with the published clinical practice guidelines.

Great podcast, keep the magic!

Getting a lot of good information from this! Great interviews from all over the world, thought provoking. Wish there were more. I would maintain the sound effects and breaks-sometimes education has to be "edutainment to recall things. If you don't like the occasional sound effects, there are plenty of other podcasts that are more monotone. This one has spice, like another great podcast-EMRAP (the host is actually EMRAP faculty)! Plus, it's nice that the host is Latino-there aren't too many outdoors experts and educators that represent us. Hasta la proxima!

Fun and thought provoking

A great variety of topics. I enjoy the medicine and cultural interviews. The rescue stuff is also great. Too bad it doesn’t come more frequently. Maybe videos?

Great info, host is good

So the information is great, The presentation of the information is great, the guests are extremely knowledgeable, and the host is a good speaker. I think it’s amazing the breadth of experts to include those from Europe and other continents, it provides excellent diverse perspectives on wilderness medicine. BUT the gags and particularly the sound effects can sometimes be detrimental to information being passed. The soundbites are almost always jarring because they come up all the sudden and are twice as loud as the narration. Truthfully, I’m hear to get smarter on wilderness medicine, I’ll get my entertainment on other podcasts.
