During a recent online video conference many EMS podcasters met to discuss the state of EMS podcasting. EMS podcasts, which can trace their roots to the earliest days of podcasting, are more vibrant than ever.
During the state of EMS podcasting video conference Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and host of the MedicCast, shared his appreciation for the ongoing support EMS podcasters receive from EMSManager.net and Physio-Control. Jamie stated, “With the support of these companies we bring content to listeners each week and deliver start to finish coverage of industry events like EMS World Expo and EMS Today.”
