Ginger Locke is a paramedic and professor of EMS students in the US. She has long been fascinated with the inner-workings of medics' minds. In this podcast, she interviews medics face-to-face, in long, intimate format. She thoughtfully asks her guests to open up about their mindset, routines, mistakes, thought-processes, and lessons hard-learned. This is her creative outlet (art).

In reference to how he collaborates with 911-callers to put order to chaos:
"It's like trying to jump on a moving train. You're not trying to stop the train or divert it, because the train has gotta go where the train's gotta go. You are just trying to get on it. And if you can get on the train... If you can get in... If you can insert yourself with them... then you can start exercisi...
Ginger had the honor of sitting down with one of the EMS greats, Mike Taigman. He was in Austin for ESO's Wave 2020 conference. ESO was generous enough to allow Medic Mindset the opportunity to record Mike's session called, "Managing Stress Like A Boss" and gave them a space during a very busy conference to record an interview.
The Mixtape Series features 3 anonymous paramedics who answer the same question. In this episode, Ginger asks, "What do you remember about your first ride along?" Take a listen to their responses and see how some themes were repeated.

Dr. Jason Pickett and Ginger discuss the topic of Shortness of Breath. They discuss the assessment, differential diagnosis and therapeutic interventions related to the chief complaint. They work their way down the respiratory tree, thinking aloud as they go. Throw in a couple of case studies and you've got some delicious brain-nuggets for paramedic students everywhere.

In this microsode, Ginger Locke asks a panel of Texas EMS Medical Directors a question about medical errors at the Texas EMS Conference in Fort Worth.
This episode felt like some of the first episodes of Medic Mindset. The purpose in sitting down together was to discuss his performance in the EMS World clinical challenge but we ended up talking about all kinds of things like career longevity and advice he would give new medics. His name is Andrew Azelton and he has been in EMS for 18 years and you will hopefully hear what I heard in his voice. He was engaged and happy to talk sho...
Ginger talks to Dr. Ben Abo. He is a paramedic and EMS physician. He’s been on the Ted stage. He’s the medical director for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Venom response teams. He’s a fellow in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine. He’s saved a stranger who collapsed on train tracks. He’s an international man of mystery and in this episode, we will talk about none of that.
Instead, Ginger reached out to him because she wanted to make an ...

For the second time, I’m visiting with Tania Glenn. She’s been on the show before with an episode that released in January of 2017 and since then I’ve gotten tons of questions for Tania from listeners. I wanted to ask some of those questions and to talk to her about a documentary she recently released.
How, in her documentary, she challenges leaders of EMS departments to better invest in the care of paramedics’ mental...

This episode is a response to the many requests I get from listeners looking for help on the national registry’s written exam.
To bring you the most useful advice, I contacted this guest. In my opinion, he is the country’s expert in the area. He understands the logistics of the test and the part that really lights my fire is the way he addresses the psychology of the test… the mindset of success… what he calls “mojo.”
It’s an ho...
Ginger Locke and Dr. Jason Pickett hunkered down in a recording closet and pretended the world didn't exist for an hour with one mission: data-mining Dr. Pickett's brain for his thoughts on syncope.
Thanks to Michael Herbert for the custom art for the episode.
