Do You Poop Where You Eat?

The Crossover Show - 110

In this aptly titled episode, HM and MC  have a simple question for you: What would you do as a Paramedic, Cop or Fireman if your municipality offered you money to buy a home in your district?  What would HM do?  What would MC do?

Would you like to live where you work?  Work where you live?  MC brings up a difficult situation HM never considered as a fireman and both of your hosts get nostalgic about their Firefighter dads and having them both first due at home.

HM’s district offered just such a program and he doesn’t live anywhere near it.  Find out why.

BOLO is pushed aside this week for a long overdue edition of “Ask MC” where HM finds 3 stories from the disciplines and does his best to earn MC 1/8 of 1 Doubloon.

He actually doesn’t do as horribly as usual if you can believe it.

Kangaroo Court and Related Shenanigans

The Crossover Show - 107

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Court is in session! Kangaroo court, that is.
In this episode, MC and HM discuss a time-honored tradition wherein when you do something shenanigatastic and get called on it, your actions can land you in front of a court of your peers.
This court is not formal. Nor is it really even run fairly…but it’s a blast. Listen in as the guys discuss a re-launching of Kangaroo court at MC’s PD. Take note and consider implementing something similar in your neck of the woods!


MC is reading the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. If you dig you some science fiction, it comes highly recommended!

Then, in true crossover fashion, they hang a sharp left hand turn and dive into the rabbit hole of the Dark Tower Move trailer.

Flight overbooked?! We got you covered!

Please stow your tray tables and return your seats to their full upright positions because Motorcop and the Happy Medic are about to give you the nitty gritty about the United Airlines “controversy.”

Fresh off the internets comes a terrible tale of corporate greed run amuck, when a mild mannered family doctor is forced from his seat, bloodied and unconscious just so some employees can get a free ride.

Memes spread like wildfire and outrage was in full force.

That is until the facts started coming out.

In this episode of the Internets best EMS, police Fire podcast your heroes separate fact from fiction and tell you why the passenger (now referred to as #manbaby) is the one you need to be upset at, not the Airline who owned the plane where he had his tantrum.

Also find out why your hosts believe that United owes Sean Spicer a Pepsi.
