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 email@example.com

Everywhere you look on the web you’re sure to find a ”Keep Calm” poster. For months now I have seen different versions of this poster on Facebook, Twitter, and especially Pinterest. I believe that’s where I first saw the iconic “Keep Calm” poster but to be completely honest I never knew its history. I figured someone coined “Keep Calm”, added a new phrase here and there and it went viral. It wasn’t until tonight that I finally found out about its origin.
So where did I find this information? Well, believe it or not, I was looking over my discussion assignment for class and my professor posted a short video from YouTube, which I will post here, on it’s history. I was amazed to find out that there was so much more to this poster. I will only give a few tidbits here so that you can watch the video for yourself but according to CBSNews.com, “In the build-up to World War II, the British government knew its people were on edge.” This of course was during the time of Nazi Germany. The Nazi’s had already crushed many European countries, but in order to keep up moral the government requested that posters be made to reassure the people as stated by CBSNews.com. What makes this so interesting is that out of all the posters, the public never saw the one that displayed “Keep Calm and Carry On”. It wasn’t until 2000 when the owner of Barter Books found it within an old box, after which it was hung up and finally viewed by the public. For the fans of the “Keep Calm” posters, this is for you. If you didn’t know before about its history, you do now and knowing is half the battle.

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.
