Over 270,000 Listens | A Ten Year History

handiphone1This episode of the podcast has Jim and Josh looking back at the show. While prepping for this episode I looked back at the stats and tallied up over 270,000 listens to the show over the past 11 years. That a lot.

We talked about Josh and WANTYNU and how a once small idea began so much bigger. How Jim and Josh met and have been on a journey every since even before the podcast itself.

This was a nice fun and relaxed show. Take a listen and I hope if you have a dream beyond EMS it gives you the knowledge that it can be done.
