  • Nicki Impastato - The First Responder Life Total Package

    3 MAR. 2024 · This episode is with the amazing Nicki Impastato! Nicki and I sit down and talk about her life working as a dispatcher while raising two kids with her Battalion Chief husband. And then we talk about doing all this while struggling with PTSD. Nicki also worked in a system that didn’t know what to do with her when she started struggling. She says, “There was something seriously wrong with me, and they knew about it, and nobody took care of me.” We so often depend on those around us to point out that we are struggling because sometimes we cannot see what is going on around us when we are just trying to survive. Nicki also talks about finding a life and purpose after a long career as a dispatcher. One place she landed was in an equine therapy program called Zenerosity and she became an equine specialist. This woman is truly amazing - I promise you will feel better about everything after listening to her. nickii@me.com https://www.zenerosity.org/ https://christywarren.substack.com/p/i-went-to-see-some-people-about-some https://www.christyewarren.com/

  • Former Firefighter James Geering Now Fights For Your Wellbeing

    1 ENE. 2024 · Pirate to stuntman to paramedic/firefighter to podcaster and back to stuntman. He’s traveled and worked around the world. He saw the fire culture's damaging effects on its members and that with becoming a single parent, he decided to choose his son over finishing his career. I find this very brave as so many of us say we would choose our family/kids over anything in the world, being a firefighter fulfills a deep need we have that the fear of leaving the job is too overwhelming. I remember wondering who in the hell leaves this job by choice? It’s almost like I didn’t even know that was possible. James shows what a firefighter who grew up learning good coping skills looks like versus those of us who grew up just trying to survive as a kid and are still currently using coping mechanisms that just don’t serve us anymore as adults. We talk about sleep deprivation, and what the fire service needs to do to make us healthier and have better longevity on the job. https://www.jamesgeering.com/ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/behind-the-shield/id1178831764 https://www.amazon.com/One-More-Light-Humanity-Firefighter-ebook/dp/B08HJKY9CH/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2IHV3WKAM8I36&qid=1704139225&sprefix=James%20Geering,aps,159
