Episode 24- The Medic Mindset with Ginger Locke

On today’s show, Ed interviews the host of The Medic Mindset podcast, Ginger Locke. Ginger is a paramedic and EMS educator who focuses on how to improve EMS education and how to progress the profession of EMS. 


How do you learn? How do your students learn? How we learn and how we teach are principles that we don’t discuss enough in EMS. We also talk about a few books that might change your practice, or how you think.

Episode 23- Mental health, The Job, and Yourself

It's becoming a known fact in EMS: Stress is harmful to overall mental health, cumulative, and affects all of us. How do we recognize when things are getting too much for us? How do our workplaces help, (or contribute) to the buildup of harmful stress? Would your agency support YOU with mental health concerns?

Warning: This talk gets real. We discuss our own issues, share some of our darker sides, and talk about some of what we do to cope.

No matter what your thoughts on the subject, or your experience in dealing with stress and job-related mental health, trust us: You're not alone.

Episode 21-Precepting and Field Training

The gang discusses field training and precasting...as Dan gets put on the spot by three of his former students/rookies!

We talk about what works, what doesn't, because both will have a profound effect on your student or rookie coming into the profession.
