Content Warning: This episode contains graphic content. 

Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally. Hosted by FDNY Hero and renowned advocate for firefighters, Rob Serra. 

Last episode we heard what led host Rob Serra to become a tireless advocate for the firefighter and first responder community. It’s been a fight he’s fought for 20 years now, and it started when he heard the people in charge, the ones that were supposed to lead, fail him and the other 9/11 first responders. Jason Burns (@jasonburns1) has been fighting that same fight. When he was elected President of Fall River Local 1314 he promised to fight for the health and well being of his constituents. He quickly found out that the fight was a lot bigger and a lot more difficult than anyone would expect. In this hard hitting episode Jason and Rob discuss the impact of OPFAs in gear, how to fix the issue and some of the small but important victories that his and other like minded groups have achieved. 

And speaking of hard hitting, Rob shares his take on the Will Smith slap heard round the world. It’s a different take. And he nails it. By not talking about Will Smith.

And to close it out we’ve got a very special treat. It might not be the most complicated meal she’s prepared, but it’s definitely one of the sweetest moments we’ve had the privilege to capture for the show. Frankie and her Grandpa make burgers and dogs. He has a Peroni, she has a Capri Sun. It’s the perfect family meal. We hope you enjoy it.

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.
