I just launched a new radio show today about firefighter training. It may not be for everybody but I want to try and provide all forms of media.
This first episode is about 23 minutes long, but has a bunch of preliminary stuff explaining what is going on, before the actual training segment.
Take a listen and use the send voicemail tab on the right hand side of this page to send feedback.
After listening I already have some modifications to make but I am satisfied with my first attempt. Maybe the luck of the Irish will be with me.
