Excellent Wildland Podcast
I truly enjoy listening to this podcast. It is informative and produced well. I think this might be the only Wildland fire podcast out there right now. I like that its slightly academic and truly applicable to operational personalities. I also like that it centers around relevant concepts that are immediately useful. Great job, please continue.
Listening to this podcast while traveling 2 states away for and major incident. Get me prepared and aware of thing that I've been doing everyday, get the complacency out of my head. Good exchange of stories to build on.
