Episode 44 - WTF, Backboards?

Mike and Ritu have a less than satisfactory experience this time while recording at the usual spot….if you listen closely, you may hear someone order tots….Anyway, on this episode, we talk Telehealth, SMR, Plasma and a variety of other delicious EMS topics. Our old friend Ben Sorenson sits in the pews and lobs grenades into the conversation….he’s too chicken to pull up a mic! You don’t want to miss this episode, so sit back relax and get ready to punch in for your SecondShift! We don’t...


Episode 43 - 14 Days to Better Epinephrine

Ok, ok, that title has nothing to do with the podcast, BUT! The PARAMEDIC2 RESULTS ARE OUT! What does that mean to you? Find out what changes Dr. Sahni thinks we should make to our current cardiac arrest protocols! The boys not only talk about Epi, but some EMS Research has gone sideways in Minneapolis and we take some listener questions and delve into MCI operations as well as Racemic Epi vs. L-Epi for croup! Sit back relax and get ready to punch in for your SecondShift! We don’t want to...


Episode 33

In this episode of SecondShift, Mike and Ritu record themselves eating. And drinking. No, seriously they are really enjoying an incredible meal with tasty beverages while you slave away on shift. Talk about rude! At least you can enjoy their conversation! They cram-packed this 33rd episode of the podcast with tons of entertainment, EMS information and much more. You can't miss this episode! Download, rate, and review wherever you get your podcasts!


Episode 32

It's been a long hiatus for SecondShift. Which is pretty typical for this podcast, right? I mean we pretty much just stay on a hiatus. You'll be pretty surprised what happens in this episode though... other than the fact that it's actually for real a new episode. Looks like somebody missed the party? Our good friend Ritu is back (we missed him) as well as a very special guest known as the lovely, fair maiden Bobbi Sue McCollum who can performed rocket surgery with astounding accuracy,...


Episode 31

Mike and Eric are finally joined by… well… me. After a bunch of years I finally sat down in front of a microphone and polluted your ears for an hour, or so! Who am I? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out. Anyway, there is much more going on in the show. We talked about a couple real issues then dropped our top 5 list of childhood technology. So, download this episode from your favorite purveyor of podcasts, and rate and review so your friends can find us, too.


Episode 30

Luckily the guys haven’t forgotten how to record a podcast. All you SecondShift-ers out there know the drill. “No time” excuses and a bunch of blah blah stuff like that. At least they dedicated a little time to making it worth a listen. Sitting around a hotel lobby attracts a lot of unexpected (maybe even uninvited) guests when you have recording equipment set up. Your ears are spared though because our unexpected guest is the world-class Dan Rauh! Familiar with that name? No? Well you...


Episode 29

Mike takes a few minutes to give you a quickie! Isn’t he amazing! For FREE! Don’t forget to look out for those coconuts! They are huge and can definitely put your safety at risk. There is lots of other things out there that can put your safety at risk, too. We love you guys and want you to be safe. In all seriousness, put this message in your ears and think about what Mike is telling you before you climb out on your next scene. It just might save your life.


Episode 28

Mike and Eric record live from the conference floor of AMTC, right from their little slice of medical heaven (their booth). Exhausted and weary from their long days and nights, the guys resort to talking about NASCAR. They must be delusional… or perhaps THEY really are in a psych ward (gotta listen to get that joke). Anyway, you won’t want to miss this episode so download, rate, review and subscribe. Remember that your friends aren’t nearly as intelligent as you so if you want to help your...


Episode 27

Up to no good as usual, the guys have managed to sneak out of a review class in Portland, Oregon to try out their new tech. Can you imagine? Like 2 hogs looking at a wrist watch. In any case, take a break from all that studying and join us for some fun! I promise your level of intelligence won't be harmed too bad. (Unless you listen twice, which can in fact cause brain damage - not responsible for brain damage caused by the listening to of this podcast.) Download, rate, and especially...


Episode 26

Southern sunshine rises over the deep south as the boys talk about their trip to the World EMS Expo in New Orleans with the one, and only Mr. Tater. If you miss this episode, you'll probably wake up with purple hair in the morning. You wouldn't want that, right? Download, rate, subscribe and tell your friends (unless you want them to wake up with purple hair... and then they would arguably not be your friend anyway).


Episode 25

RALLY THE SENATE! Dr. Rita Sahni is BAAAAACK with the boys on the show with some great news and another desperate plea for help in the fight for EMS right to work in the way we know it now. They also talk about some stuff that you will absolutely love. What do they talk about? If I tell you what they talk about, you won’t want to listen. Might me something profound. Could be crap, too I guess. You gotta download, pass it around, beg your friends to download, listen, e-mail your senator,...


Episode 24

In this action-packed episode of SecondShift, the guys welcome Kyle Aitken to the show… and then proceed to contribute to his delinquency. You won’t believe some of the subjects the guys talk about. Who let Eric write the script, anyway? Enjoy this episode with an icy-cold beverage and listen to the gentle sounds of the top 5 rappers of all time. Download, subscribe, rate and pass this episode around on social media! You’’ll be happy that you did!


Episode 23

In this episode of SecondShift, the guys bring back long-time friend Dr. Ritu Sahni to download some super-smart EMS stuff into our brains, and more! By popular demand, the top 5 returns with a Hollywood twist and WOW do the boys show their potty-mouths! Not quite to Scarface (‘Say hello to my little friend!’) standards, but let the F-Bombs drop, gentlemen!!! Join us in this episode of SecondShift!


Episode 22

We got a whole lot of funny Shift for you to listen to this week! The guys bring back the 90's (for better, or worse), and debate the finer points of all things EMS, community paramedics, air medical, and even some light banter about nurses. Wether you are on a long transport, or burning the midnight oil in the emergency room download this episode, and subscribe to SecondShift. Why? Because it's funny. And possibly educational. Mostly funny, though. Sort of like if a really hot chick was...


Episode 21

In this episode of SecondShift the boys run to the border! Well they don't actually go anywhere. They just put in a call to our good friend Ryan Wyatt who is watching "the fence" from his cabana. You won't want to miss hearing about what he does with ultrasound probes! We also hear from Dr. Ritu Sahni, and then take a stroll back to the 80's for another top 5 countdown with the boys. Don't forget to laugh at the guys along the way! Share, download, and please subscribe and rate our show!...


Episode 20

Episode 19

It's not just any day around the podcast studios... yes, it's Thursday. But it's not just any Thursday! Today is the greenest Thursday of the year! Happy Saint Patrick's Day from everybody at FlightBridgeED and the SecondShift podcast! We had that leprechaun guy from that cereal commercial (you know the one) booked as our special guest today, but his agent called us last minute to cancel. Something about not believing in podcasts? Whatever. No worries! We have an ever better guest anyway...


Episode 18

What’s up, SecondShift-ers? It’s been a couple nights since we birthed a new episode from the proverbial creative womb of the SecondShift podcast. Lucky for you this episode is classed up by our good friend, and FlightBridgeED writer, Mister Klint W. Kloepping—otherwise known as @NoDesat from the Twitter thingy. In this episode, the guys embarrass themselves with their (lack of) knowledge of gaming, and run all the way through to active violent events, some new freaky disease that likes the...


Episode 17

This is a special edition of SecondShift… why is it special? Because I wrote that it was special. Can’t you read??? But seriously, this is sort of a special edition. The boys have invited back long-time friend of the show, Dr. Ritu Sahni to talk about something that not even I can joke about. A pillar of EMS is under attack and if you haven’t heard about it, you won’t believe what “THEY” are doing now. Join Mike, Eric and Dr. Sahni as they hit the sirens, and call each and every one of us to...


Episode 16
