Our Supporters

This page is dedicated to those who supported the Within the Trenches project from the beginning. As more people back the project, more names will be added. The point is to give a little something back to those who helped out. A little extra exposure never hurts so that’s what I want to do.

I want to thank Allegan County Central Dispatch for allowing me to jump into this, Seth Manthei, CEO of Threadsy for the assistance with our shirts and everyone who pledged to the Within the Trenches Kickstarter project. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here and on that note, if it wasn’t for the article posted in Dispatch Magazine On-line I wouldn’t be typing this right now. It’s because of their article that so many people were able to find my story and help fund my project. A shout out goes to the various dispatch pages on Facebook that helped spread the word including Diary of a Mad Dispatcher, Through the Eyes of a 9-1-1 Dispatcher, The Cool Kids of 9-1-1, The Nocturnal DispatcherEmergency Services: Beyond The Call, Nighttime Dispatch Radio and Emergency Response for Dummies. The rest of our main supporters are listed below and make sure to give them some love if you have Twitter or Facebook or simply visit their website and make sure to tell them that Jabber Log sent you. If you would like to sponsor the Within the Trenches podcast, please send an email to thejcast@thejabberlog.com
