Traumashow Online Premiere Party

Join Leading EMS Podcasters for Commentary and a Post-Premiere Call-in Show on Monday September 28

Join leading EMS Podcasters Jamie Davis, Chris Montera, Greg Friese and others in watching and discussing the premiere of the new NBC show Trauma. Browse to EMSGarage.com/live or  http://mediccastlive.com at 9 p.m. EDT/ 8p.m. CST on Monday September 28, 2009 for live conversation and commentary. Trauma, the dramatic new show about paramedics in San Francisco promises to be an action packed exploration of the profession and the stresses it places on relationships.

During the premiere, using the online platform TalkShoe or Ustream.tv for video Jamie, Chris, Greg and other podcasters and EMS bloggers will be discussing the action, plot, and EMS technique of the show and its cast. Listeners will be able to text chat with one another and the hosts as the premiere unfolds.

After the show Jamie Davis, an RN, paramedic, and host of the MedicCast (http://mediccast.com) – the highest ranked EMS podcast – will take calls from listeners. Jamie Davis is watching the premiere of trauma because “I am looking for a program that will portray the real issues in EMS while inspiring a new generation to join the profession as previous shows like Emergency inspired me to become a paramedic.”

Greg Friese, a paramedic and co-host of the EMSEduCast podcast (http://emseducast.com) reports, “I want Trauma to be authentic and respectful of EMS. Like many EMS professionals I am excited and skeptical about Trauma’s potential. I am excited to watch and discuss Trauma with an international audience.”

Chris Montera, a paramedic chief and host of the EMS Garage podcast (http://emsgarage.com) shares, “EMS professionals would love for Trauma to succeed and draw attention to the work we do, but if it is a miserable failure we have no problem calling it DOA!”

Sponsorship opportunities for the Trauma premiere party are available to companies and vendors that want to reach EMS professionals using social media. Sponsorship includes in-show special mentions and links from the podcast show notes. Contact Jamie Davis, podmedic@mac.com or call 443-309-2090 for details on this unique and limited opportunity.
