Woo! Within the Trenches Podcast is back with episode 49 and I would like to welcome back Whitney! She has been gone for some time and rather than spoil the surprise I will let you go ahead and listen to her reveal it. In this episode we share some personal stories along with what happened on my trip to Marquette Michigan for work. It was an awesome experience and I can’t wait to go back. Towards the end we touch on Kari’s Law and future episodes.

Good morning everyone! Ever since Within the Trenches hit its goal the show has become quite popular. With such an outpour of support it not only makes me happy but it proves how important this show is. I have been working on spreading the word on the show as well as submitting feeds in order for people to have the ability to download certain apps and stream the show over their mobile devices. As of right now there are three separate feeds. I stated this in a previous post but I wanted to state it again so that it is clear. The feeds are separated as separate categories with one being Within the Trenches, The AudioVillains (NSFW), and a feed to rule them all, The JCast. The last one holds all the shows in one. I did this because not everyone wants to hear every show and all three links can be found on the right side of the site.
With that said I’m happy to announce that Within the Trenches is not only on iTunes for subscription but on Stitcher Radio. For those who have not heard about Stitcher, it’s a free mobile app available for iPhone, Android and other mobile devices. It’s an on-demand podcast, news and public radio app. Ever since I started using Stitcher I have discovered many great shows and I highly recommend it. I will provide a video on Stitcher and a link to Within the Trenches for your listening pleasure. Thank you again for listening and this Wednesday January 16th episode 3 will be recorded. If you have any questions please contact me any time at the JCast’s official email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Office Space, “A comedic tale of company workers who hate their jobs and decide to rebel against their greedy boss,” says IMDb.com. The movie is a classic but let’s look at one portion of the synopsis, “company workers who hate their jobs.” The characters in the movie indeed hate their jobs but what if deep down they hated it because they knew that is was slowly killing them? Interesting is it not? The characters are portrayed as stressed out, crazed, and manic yet it’s done with a sense of humor. All jokes aside, my career behind a desk has spanned over 13 years and the stress is real. There are many health risks that come from sitting for long hours but you don’t have to take my word for it.
Could sitting at my desk job be killing me softly?
According to CNN on a feature for Health.com, “Studies suggest that sitting for hours on end is harmful, regardless of a person’s overall calorie intake or physical activity.” How much more harmful can it be to our bodies? We’re just sitting there, right? In no way are we lifting anything heavy so what could go wrong? Within the same article featured on CNN,
“extended daily TV watching and time on the computer–which, like desk jobs, involve long periods of time sitting still–have been linked to a greater risk of metabolic syndrome, a constellation of health problems that can lead to diabetes and heart disease.”
The studies linking desk jobs or sitting for that matter and health problems are staggering. MSNBC featured an article by Men’s Health saying, “A 2006 University of Minnesota study found that from 1980 to 2000, the percentage of people who reported exercising regularly remained the same—but the amount of time people spent sitting rose by 8 percent.” So it appears that people are exercising but it doesn’t do a lot of good if we continue to sit on our rears. Now if that wasn’t enough, sitting for long periods can also affect our posture.
“For instance, if you spend a lot of time with your shoulders and upper back slumped over a keyboard, this eventually becomes your normal posture,” says Bill Hartman, P.T., C.S.C.S., a Men’s Health advisor and physical therapist in Indianapolis, Indiana. Hartman continued to say, “That’s not just an issue in terms of how you look; it frequently leads to chronic neck and shoulder pain,”
Still want a cozy desk job? A desk job may seem like the way to go but if you fall into the land of inactivity then you may experience some health issues. Below is an infographic featured on Mashable.com, which shows the risks and what can be done to combat them.Post Views: 193

Welcome to an all new episode of Within the Trenches, a podcast based on the experience of being a 9-1-1 dispatcher. In this episode I spoke with dispatchers from Indiana with the code names of Maverick and Phoenix. We recorded live from the Indiana Convention Center for the 2016 National NENA Conference & Expo. This episode is sponsored by NENA and INdigital – A leader in Next-Gen Core Services.
This episode is hilarious and I can’t even start to explain the stories we told but it was a good time and if you are looking for a good laugh make sure to listen and share. As always if you have any questions or would like to be a guest on the show please send an email to email@example.com.
