As promised in SMACCGOLD IS ALL THE RAGE here is RAGE Session Four – ‘The smaccGOLD edition‘ of the RAGE podcast.
This podcast represents the first time all the RAGE podcasters have been together in person. In addition to the RAGE team we had a bunch of friends helping us out (From left to right:):
- Rich Levitan (@airwaycam)
- Scott Weingart (@emcrit)
- Haney Mallemat (@CriticalCareNow)
- Michaela Cartner (@mjcartner)
- Karel Habig (@karelhabig)
- Chris Nickson (@precordialthump)
- John Hinds (@docjohnhinds)
- Cliff Reid (@cliffreid)

Unfortunately, missing from the photo is my great friend and SMACC co-conspirator Oli Flower (@oliflower). Also, the third founder of SMACC, the ‘SMACC Big Cheese’ Roger Harris (@RogerRDHarris) wasn’t included because we’d just have to bleep out everything he’d say anyway… Sorry Rog!
The audio quality is a tad marginal in places, but that’s what you get with an impromptu recording of 10 slightly manic people in a room with one mic. All the same, we hope it is an engaging audio experience and gives a good insight into the SMACC experience and what to look out for as the talks are released online. Thanks to Haney for helping me get this audio into the best shape possible.
This is ’17 minutes’, the amazing video by Tamara Hills and family mentioned in the podcast (nearly 7,000 views and counting):
