The podcast was awesome. As someone who typically keeps to himself, Jerry made the podcast feel like an everyday conversation. He is awesome at not making any conversation feel awkward or forced. These podcasts are real people talking g about real things that the average everyday person can relate to.
This podcast is not only excellent and hosted by someone great, but is also needed in so many ways. For years, many of us stayed silent, and in that silence were buried stories. Now that we are sharing them we are able to heal and help others in their struggles by knowing that they are not alone. Keep doing what you do Jerry and thank you for having me on as a guest. Cheers!
Jerry - What a pleasure! You did a great job asking real questions and sharing real vulnerabilities and solutions. So many in service (fire, law enforcement, etc.) suffer alone. We can take a more proactive approach to living our best lives. Thank you for being a voice for many!
I love the what this podcast aims to do. I am very grateful to be able to listen to my fellow neighbors and friends and community open up and share personal things so that I can understand better and appreciate them more. Especially the last couple years with all the chaos and all the headlines and being a civilian and having all these doubts and questions and concerns. I love that you all with the badge are willing to be vulnerable so that I can not be as ignorant . I applaud you.
The first podcast I listened to on enduring the badge was on First Responder Sleep Recovery & at this point I realized this podcast was going to be a great resource for myself & to also share with others ♥️
Excellent in topic and insightful.
This page is truly becoming my favorite. So so SO many good podcasts and resources here! Thank you for what you do!
Jerry has such a calm demeanor, and that put me, as an interviewee at ease, making the conversation we had so easy. He has a wonderful array of guests on the show, each with a very helpful tool for first responders to learn from.
I was a guest on this podcast. The host Jerry D Lund is a friend of mine. I used the appearance as an opportunity to discuss the Silver Valley Fire Alliance. A non-profit organization for the volunteer fire departments in Southern California. In preparation for my appearance I listened to many of the previous episodes. I became a fan! Jerry does a wonderful job at digging into the underlying experiences first responders go through. I've listened to him draw out experiences from around our community. This helps to cope with calls that we deal with. I imagine it is entertaining for people who are not within our community as well. Big shout out to Jerry D Lund and Enduring the Badge podcast for the wonderful job in bringing light to some dark places.
I listen to a lot of podcasts. But there's only a few that I never miss an episode and Enduring The Badge is one of those!
This podcast experience was great! The host, Jerry, asks insightful questions of the guest and gets the true story out of his guest while throwing in humor and keeping the pace of the show alive. Jerry is obviously passionate about First Responders' work, and this clearly shows through on his podcasts.
Very professional and well done, I really enjoyed it and the interactive dialogue we had. The pace, respect shown to me and appreciation from the host made me very comfortable to share my story, thank you for presenting first responders in a positive light.
Learn a lot from this show not just about First Responders but also in the other aspects of life. This is truly a wonderful channel. Please keep on going so you can inspire more people! I would love to hear and watch more episodes. Kudos!
Jerry has a great model for his interviews. He carries the interview professionally and is easy to talk to. He brings the most out of the interview and all of the interviews are beneficial to not only first responders, but families of first responders and the general population.
Jerry clearly had a passion for first responders and the challenges they face. The depth and breadth of his guests and subjects is a testament to this. Worthwhile podcast - you won’t be disappointed!!
I recently listened to my first episode of this podcast show. As a retired law enforcement officer I found the guests and discussions to be relevant, thought provoking, and easy going. What I liked most is the positivity as there is enough negative out there these days. Good job and keep doing what you’re doing.
