Thursday May 5th, John and I will celebrate our 100th show on Firefighter Netcast live at 9pm.
What is Firefighter Netcast?
Firefighter Netcast is the leading edge in podcasting and live netcasts for the fire service today. When we began in January 2010, there was one other show “Burning it Down” run by the guys behind The Bravest Online. Unfortunately they closed the door on their live podcast and left us all alone…until recently.
Nowadays there are other options for live fire service podcasting…but lets be clear that we are often imitated but never duplicated!
While we still have a lot to learn, we have continued to broaden our reach, fine tune our delivery, and offer the best fire service podcasting available.
You might ask why you can’t listen in every night to Firefighter Netcast…the answer is because these things take time. Our hosts have to create the shows and the content has to be rich. If we were running shows every night, our content would be watered down and we would begin repeating ourselves. In addition to all of that, we have families and careers.
Who is Firefighter Netcast?
Our shows and hosts include:
- The Firefighter Netcast Show with John Mitchell and Rhett Fleitz
- Taking it to the Streets with Christopher Naum
- Firefighter Storytellers with Tiger Schmittendorf
- Stop, Drop, and Roll with the Punches with Billy D. Hayes
- The Front Seat with Dave LeBlanc
- (a show yet to be named) with Art Doss
We will be joined very shortly with host Doug Cline as well.
I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention the tremendous assistance that Willie Wines Jr. has been to Firefighter Netcast. He has helped us out so much and we are very grateful!
We have also done work for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation at Conferences and the NFFF Memorial Weekend. We produce FireHero Radio for the NFFF as well.
But the most important aspect of Who we are is our listeners! We enjoy the live listeners who chat in the chatroom as well as the majority of our listeners who catch up with us on our web site, facebook, twitter, and most importantly itunes!
I must say that I have had a blast since January 2010 when we got started. I have enjoyed all of the people I have met, the ones I have yet to meet, and the places I have been!
In case anyone is counting, we HAVE had more than 100 podcasts, but this is our 100th live netcast! In addition to the live netcasts, we have recorded dozens of other shows at conferences and other places!
Thanks for making Firefighter Netcast the BEST fire service podcast!
Thanks for the memories!
