Good morning and welcome back! Whitney and I finally got the chance to record episode 43 and this is a must listen and watch! In this episode we sat down with our good friend Matt to talk about ridiculous calls and non-emergency calls on emergency lines. Matt is a local police officer and since we have worked with him before we felt he would be best suited for this episode. We also visit inappropriate 9-1-1 “on hold” songs and share other funny stories. Get ready to be schooled and make sure to check out our podcast promotion featuring Facebook fan page 911 Dispatches From the Edge. This page is a good mixture of humor and seriousness. It’s a place for 9-1-1 professionals to vent, network, share stories and more. Tune in next week when I sit down with Smart911 to share what they do for the public and dispatch. As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org. And make sure to look below because this episode comes with a video version.

Good afternoon everyone! I am back again with another great episode from this weeks NENA conference in Lansing, Michigan. In this episode Mike of St. Joseph County Fire Dispatch in South Bend, Indiana, joined me along with Ron, Executive Director of Kent County Dispatch Authority and Nancy, Dispatch Operations Manager of St. Joseph County in Indiana. Episode 21 is jammed packed with useful information and a must listen. We touch on several dispatch stories as well as a mention of the Denise Amber Lee Foundation that Ron is a part of. One of the major points in this episode is a standardization of training for 9-1-1 professionals.

The JCast on Jabber Log started out as a podcast that would cover a show featuring the AudioVillains. This show is full of humor, serious topics and adult content. It has gained many followers and currently the show is making a comeback with episode 27, which will be live on Spreaker. Since the inception of the JCast the podcast has added two shows and is growing fast.
The first show is Within the Trenches, which is based on the experience of being a 9-1-1 dispatcher. This show has exploded with my co-host Whitney and I spreading the word on what it is really like to answer the call. We play real 9-1-1 tapes, answer listener questions and we interview other dispatchers from around the United States and other countries. The show is currently making the rounds of 9-1-1 conferences and was recently at the Mini-C conference in Boca Raton Florida.
The next show is called the RandomCast. This show features random guests discussing random topics. Some episodes can be explicit and in order for you to know beforehand, each episode will start with a warning of the three A’s. This includes Adult Content, Adult Language and Awesomeness. Each episode lasts between 20-30 minutes but if we get on a good topic the episode will go longer.
I am very happy to say that each show is doing well. They are doing so well that there is even a storefront for Within the Trenches merchandise and campaigns going for official AudioVillains t-shirts and limited edition Within the Trenches tees. You can follow the links below for each item and remember that with each purchase the money goes to the funding of the shows found on the JCast of Jabber Log. Thank you very much for the support!
