Code 3 - The Firefighters Podcast

From the iTunes Description

The weekly podcast for and about firefighters, "Code 3" covers topics of interest to those in the fire service, through interviews with those who know it best. From Chiefs to Probies, Engineers to Firefighters, and EMTs to Paramedics. award-winning journalist Scott Orr talks with them all.




The intro was short and to the point and let know what to expect. It was well produced and set the mood for the podcast. 

The host had informed me that he had Parkinson's and as he put it, "which is why my voice is so...weird."

My first reaction was that Scott was drunk. However, knowing of his disease I had compassion. My dilemma is then, how does Scott invoke that compassion without announcing in every episode, "Oh by the way I have Parkinson's." I don't have an answer for it. You might add a blurb in you about page on the site. 

After listening longer and getting used to Scott's "Accent" it somewhat disappears. After all, Scott is the interviewer and his guest should do most of the talking. 

I always say as long as the delivery does not distract from what is being due to HOW it's being said, you don't have a problem. 


When I went to the speaker page, there was no way to subscribe to the show. You could get more Google Juice by putting a single player with show notes on you main website

As your website is I would invest in as well and point it at the original site. This way you don't have to constantly spell your website. You can get domains at
