Isn't there GPS that guides trucks on the most efficient route? Maybe that's just an assumption on my part.

People that rely on GPS end up in the river.

True. Not always 100% accurate in a city around here though. Plus, when the adrenaline is in overdrive it’s good to know where you’re going without gps.

The message? It's bad for men to talk about their feelings.

Jk. Interesting listen. Thanks for sharing.

I decided to give it a fresh listen to see what I’d signed you up for. I’ve heard him talk on multiple occasions so was just wondering which part of the story you were getting.
If you made it to the feelings comment then you got a pretty taste- and recognize that being a jerk like that comment might suggest isn’t what Aaron Fields is about.

If you want to dive in a little deeper for whatever reason, maybe the Benadum and Hoffman épisodes to hear how an FD responded to losing 2 firefighters in house fire. What i like and respect is the way they recognized that Toledo FD needed to do certain things better and are very open about the process. Not all FDs (or institutions in general) are like that.

Back to Skinny John: today he made sun tea. For himself.

Remember that different from other jobs, we eat, sleep, clean, and work together
