In this episode, we introduce a special guest that had a major influence in MC's life…CaptainDaddy! Happy picks his brain about getting out of the job "whole". We also chat about retirement systems, budgets and whether drivers of emergency vehicles should be referred to as such.
Happy and Motor are at it again, finally, and this time calling out some stupid things done by stupid people while representing EMS, fire and police. From the ambulance company who lost $1 million to the 27 year old DUI while driving a fire truck and a special comment from Motorcop about a narcotics officer in Happy’s area caught stealing and selling narcotics. Quit being stupid!
Sure, we taped the show two weeks ago. It took MC two weeks to limp his way through editing. But Huzzah! He finally got the job done. In this episode, HM and I talk about freeway lane closures, who’s in charge, and what happens when PD and Fire disagree.
We also take a couple more listener questions…remember, you can call with your question(s) at 313-451-HMMC. Want to know who figured out what 451 means? Listen to the show!
Another installment of the blabbling on that is the World’s only crosspolinated podcast is back from the holiday break (we decide when those are, Sparky) and discuss scene safety versus a scene being secure and use the shooting in Tucson as a backdrop.
We also answer a listener question that was phoned in at 313-451-HMMC, which was our all requests oldies hot line, but is now just a drunk dial number for public safety folks to vent (when off duty of course).
So have a listen and let us know what you think about Medics carrying handcuff keys.
Another installment of my mother’s favorite podcast is up and live featuring myself and the ever talented Motorcop of Motorcopblog.com.
This week he discusses some of the news stories from the LEO perspective including blood draws for DUI and a man shot for pointing a hose nozzle at police. I mention the New Mexico EMT recovering from a head on collision on I-25 and how many ambulance accidents could be avoided entirely.
News of Scarlett Johannsen’s divorce makes the list, as do more listener questions.
Speaking of listener questions, did you know you can now CALL INTO the show? Well, not really, but admit it, you were excited for a second. Leave a voicemail at 313 451-HMMC and we’ll answer your question on the next show.
What will that topic be? Listen to episode 7 for details. We’ve actually planned a topic. GASP!

Not so long ago in a municipality not too far away…
While giggling about the title of this episode (which we did often) I realized that my ride along with Motorcop did give me a new hope. A new hope that we can prove ourselves Professionals and stand up to the bean counters and lawyers who are afraid of a law they do not understand.
Our Rebel cast once again includes the one person I like to listen to at length, me, and traffic enforcer Extraordinaire Motorcop from Morotcopblog.com. We discuss the collision from the ride along and how vastly different the law treats them compared to EMS and how there is no reason for it. We also find out how many times a PCR has been entered into court.
And in part of a new segment, we answer listener questions submitted on twitter.
On another note: Someone asked about why we don’t have show notes. Um, dude, we’re doing an audio show so we don’t have to take notes!
Continuing my retelling of my experiences riding with Motorcop, I promised to tell you about what makes him giggle like a 4 year old.
While we were running radar infront of a school a call came in for a reported traffic light out. When he heard it he…well…have a listen.
The second known recording of myself and Motorcop trying to be clever has been discovered and is now available for your enjoyment.
In this episode we discuss quotas, how people love telling me what to do, how we change our demeanor for different people and why Mrs Happy Medic slaps me around so much. No, really, we got it on tape.
