Episode 217: Lucky
It can be difficult to see how lucky we are sometimes. Over this past week, I fell into that trap of absorbing only the bad. Feelings of self-loathing and subjective self-pitty were my most intimate of companions during that 7 day stretch. But, as all things do, change came to me. Living with PTSD can bring about unique challenges and hurdles to navigate. It can also remind me of just how fortunate I really am...

Episode 216: Jack of the Lantern
So, if you didn’t already know, I am a HUGE Halloween fan. In fact, as soon as September hits, my “watched” playlist across all streaming devices quickly shifts to all things macabre and deliciously spooky. This year, I tried my hand at crafting a story of my own.  I have always been curious about why we carve pumpkins, and throughout my search, I was confronted with captivating tales of a man named, Jack. I wrote, narrated and produced this story. It’s a little long, but if you want some help getting into the most frightfully festive time of year, have a listen and see what you think.  Ladies and gentleman, I introduce you to, a man named, Jack!

Episode 215: Empty Chairs
The news has been a tough place to ingest as of late. From forest fires, protests, viruses and now, Afghanistan. To say that I have been experiencing a swirl of emotion would be to exercise understatement. This episode I dive into the symbolism of empty chairs and what they mean to me. Hopefully, by the end of this episode, you will have a better understanding of what I have been going through, and perhaps even be able to relate in your own way.

Episode 214: The Kindness.
On the 4th of August 2021, my family and I were evacuated from our home due to the White Rock Lake fire currently ravaging B.C.'s interior.  Being evacuated is a new experience for me and having once been a first responder myself, it drew feelings of inadequacy from within me. No longer being the one to rush in, to ease and calm chaos, instead being one of the many in need... it made an already troubling situation that much more trying. #whiterocklakefire #BCWildfires #FalklandStrong #Highway97Strong #BCWFS  To stay up to date with all things, A Medic’s Mind, be sure to like and subscribe to this video so that you never miss a thing (including giveaways)!

Episode 213: Naomi Osaka, Simone Biles and Matt Walsh... let's talk!
With the Olympics in full swing, and 2021 being what it is, there is no shortage of contestable occurrences at this years sporting extravaganza. And when athletes are questioned on the legitimacy of their mental health claims, its forces me to look inward at my own judgements, not only toward me, but others as well. So, on today's show, we discuss mental health, barriers, boundaries and expectations. Oh, and Matt Walsh doesn't think boys should cry. We'll get into that, too. #NaomiOsaka #SimoneBiles #Tokyo2021 #MattWalsh #MentalHealth   To stay up to date with all things, A Medic’s Mind, be sure to like and subscribe to this video so that you never miss a thing (including giveaways)!

Episode 212: Driving NASCAR
On this episode I reminisce about when I was just starting out as a "baby doc." Driving lights and sirens may sound like a lot of fun, and sure, part of that assertion is true. But it also comes with a heaping dollop of vexation and stress. Listen through to the end to find out how I learned that I could drive for, NASCAR!!!

Episode 211: B.C. is Hurting
As we see a gradual ease of the COVID-19 restrictions, hopes were that a return to normalcy was not too far behind. Sadly, what followed the residents of B.C., was more adversity. Wildfires are raging throughout the province, and as if that was not bad enough, 5 trades workers lost their lives in a tragic accident in downtown Kelowna. I share my thoughts on these heroes and more on today's episode of the podcast. If you can, please click the link below and donate to the people of Lytton B.C.

Episode 210: July 6th, and the Blue Jays Suck!
Today (July 6th) is historically a tough day for me. It holds on a painful reminder of what was taken some years ago. And on each passing year, I try my best to share stories and experiences that I had with a hero... On July 6th of 2008, Private Colin WIlmot was killed while on mission in Afghanistan. I knew this man. Served with this man. Drank beer, shared laughs and even cried with this man. He was and remains one of the most important figures in my life. And to segue on from there, I light the Blue Jays baseball club up for their apathy and disregard for one of their city's heroes. Stick around and have a listen to this episode of, A Medic's Mind.

Episode 209: Dark Humor
On this episode we discuss the macabre sense of humor that is often concatenates itself to first responders. I share some anecdotes and opinion on the matter in hopes of peeling away some of the obfuscating nature of what dark humor is, and why it is so vital to those in service.

With the abomination of heat that we currently find ourselves suffering through right now, it felt like the right time to release a summer themed episode. Again, this one on the lighter end of the spectrum.

Episode 206: A Boy Named, Ryan.
Summer is fast approaching and that means, heat, long days, warm nights and of course... memories. For me, Summer's can be tough to navigate.

Relive, reexperience and retell my life's more, lighthearted moments spent beneath the cascading sun. And today's episode is the start of that trend! Enjoy!

Episode 201: Media, Depression, and Some Rambling!
On this episode I may ramble a bit. But, I hope that my overall message comes through - sometimes, it's okay to not be okay - but we have to reach out for help, and it is imperative that we focus on the root causes of issues at hand - not just the symptoms.

Episode 196: Uh-oh, Politics!
Oh no! What the hell am I doing?! Don't worry; this is not as bad as it sounds and it's likely (hopefully) a topic that we will not have to revisit anytime soon. This is, however, likely to stir some debate - and that's fine! Debate is healthy. In fact, that's part of what I talk about in this episode. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it or at the very least, come away with something from it.  Cheers.

A day late but none the less relevant; here is my Father's Day post.  Father's Day has always held obfuscating meaning for me. It had typically been a day not celebrated in my family, and rightfully so. But that does not change the fact that when I was kid, this day and its festivities were always something that provoked a stir of introspection for me. I write about that in this story of my father... #fathersday
