Stories of progression and survival

Original post July 2019:
Since my last post on July 24, 2019 the Between the Slides podcast has been downloaded 664 times. This brings the total show downloads to 2,380 as of this posting. WOW! I’m a guy who wanted to keep teaching incident management that started from his garage gym and now home office. To think that ~95 classrooms full of ~25 people hit play on my podcast is humbling and very appreciated, but not totally surprising. I’ve had great guests.

Their stories, our conversations and hopefully some of their shared processes and progress that has drawn more folks to the show. I just recorded a new episode last night and will release it later this week. As we recorded there was some background noise and my interviewee’s dog barked. Good. I’m leaving the real life in the podcast because that’s the whole premise of Between the Slides. These aren’t discussions you’ll get when someone is clicking through a presentation. These are the discussions with people that have triumphed, lost, learned and keep getting after it.

If you haven’t listened and learned more about Rob, Ben Gomes or Ben Rogers, please consider checking out their stories and our discussions.

The episodes:

Great discussions about Fire Service and Incident Management Team (IMT) progression with my friend and teammate Rob.

Rob: Firefighter to IMT Leader
