Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having an excellent day. I am currently in Lansing, Michigan for the 2013 NENA conference. This episode is the first of a series that will be recorded here. I have been attending classes, meeting new people and for this episode I had the pleasure of speaking to Dee Ann, the assistant director of Tuscola County Central Dispatch. We had an excellent conversation and this is one that you can’t afford to miss! As always you can email the show at email@example.com and make sure to ‘Like’ us on Facebook!

Good morning and welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This is going to be episode 79 and I’m going a little out of order but after recording episode 80, a milestone for the show, I had to post it up right away. Steve of Fairfax County 911 out of Virginia had an excellent story and if you haven’t listened to it yet, you need to. Today’s episode was going to be with Misti, a dispatcher and admin for “911 Dispatchers – Did I Really Say That?” but we had to reschedule so she will be on for a future episode and I look forward to that. My guest today is a good friend of mine and has been on the show before. He is the North Central Regional Director for National NENA and the Director of Vigo county out of Indiana.
In this episode we covered several silly and or ridiculous calls and shared some stories of our own. Below you will find the link to all the calls we referenced from the news affiliates. As always, if you have any questions or would like to be a guest on the show you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

This week on the JCast featuring the AudioVillains we reflected on the promo where Eddie showed us his Arnold impression. We also talked about how there are Mormons who are going to war with drug cartels in Mexico (click here for vid by Vice), some funny YouTube video’s and how Mike is a good liar when it comes to making others suffer with him. I’m also adding a video that shows you a little on what goes on behind the scenes of the JCast featuring the AudioVillains. Make sure to watch, listen, and share! Cheers!Post Views: 88

Good morning! I’d like to thank everyone for reading up on Jabber Log. A lot of new things have been added and they have been running rather smooth. The transition from WordPress.com to WordPress.org has been an experience. I lost a few things as well as the ability to automatically send out emails to my subscribers. I went from 153 to 0. I’m not sure why this happened but I still have the email addresses for everyone and I have been trying to find a better way to reach my readers. I was going to use MailChimp but through a conversation with a colleague I decided against it. A family member of mine did mention a service named TinyLetter that was recently acquired by MailChimp. The service allows for a simple newsletter to be sent out to email subscribers, and features a way to continue a discussion with those who reply to the newsletter.
I will supply a short video below that describes the service and add a link to the main page of Jabber Log for others to subscribe. This will be the first time using this service so please comment or reply when the newsletter is sent out. I want to know how well this works out. If a bi-weekly or monthly newsletter is better than an email every time a new post is added, I would like to know. The point is to keep you interested in reading Jabber Log rather than get the feeling of being spammed with post after post. For those who have recently subscribed I have added your email addresses to the list. Those who subscribed before the transition have also been added. Now, don’t think this is something you have to subscribe to. You can easily unsubscribe but know that I do appreciate your continued loyalty. If this works I will be deleting the regular email subscription and using the newsletter instead. It will feature recent posts and upcoming stories or events. Thanks again for reading and your continued support. Make sure to comment and let me know your choice or opinion on the idea of a bi-weekly or monthly newsletter rather than an email each time a post is added to Jabber Log. Cheers!Post Views: 149
