A while back I told readers about my opportunity to meet EMS celebrities at this year’s EMS Expo in New Orleans. One of those celebrities was Greg Friese. I’ve been a stalker big fan of his for a while now, and I had a ton of questions for him. Among the questions were…
“How do you maintain so many websites and podcasts?”
“How are you able to consistently create a high volume of quality online content?”
“How many years without sleep must someone endure to achieve your level of success?”
He did answer the first two questions in depth, and I’m proud to say that I now understand the ways of an e-Jedi. I just can’t share them with you. He swore me to secrecy, and Greg also has the power to perform a Darth Vader Force Choke through any device with an internet connection.
In response to the third question, he admitted that it had actually been about five years since he’s slept, as evidenced by his hallmark baritone voice. Turns out he sounded more like Adam Levine before getting into e-Learning. We later had a conversation about how to decrease his workload so that he could begin sleeping at least once a month. The solution we settled on was to find him a co-host for the popular Medical Author Chat podcast. We launched a nationwide search for a co-host, and identified several exemplary candidates. Unfortunately, none of them were interested in providing their services at the salary we offered, which was… okay, so there isn’t a salary for a podcast co-host.
So in the interest of allowing Greg to sleep occasionally and the lack of a qualified co-host willing to work for free, yours truly will be joining Medical Author Chat as a co-host. We kicked things off this week with our first show together. So surf yourself on over there and check out the interview with Matthew Sias, author of Silent Siren: Memoirs of a Life-Saving Mortician.
