Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally. Hosted by FDNY Hero and renowned advocate for firefighters, Rob Serra.
Every kid grows up dreaming of scoring the winning touchdown, the last second basket, the game winning goal. And every once in a while those dreams come true. But the reality is that most of the time those dreams are never realized. And even when they are, most of us never see the sacrifice that goes into those dreams. The sacrifices the parents make, the siblings. The weight of those dreams is carried by a lot of people.
And that’s something firefighters know a lot about. Sacrifice. Duty. Being a part of something bigger than yourself. That’s what being a part of a team is all about. And this week’s guest, Anthony Greco, is the embodiment of one of those dreams. He’s a homegrown hero. The son of a firefighter and a nurse. He works his ass off and this spring he had a chance to get on the ice for the Rangers. It was a special moment. For him, for his family, and for the community of firefighters in New York that knew his father and 9/11 first responder, Paul Greco. So as the Rangers head into the conference finals we’ve got a great conversation to help get you fired up.
“Never forget” isn’t just a hashtag here. If you’re one of America’s Firefighters, a first responder, or the family or a friend of one, this is your new home.
And no home is complete without a kitchen. This week Frankie imakes Chris Kreider’s favorite meal, gluten free Hawaiian pizza. It’s a long way from a slice of New York pie but honestly it’s pretty darn delicious and we think your family will love it.
