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. 

We’re big fans of Richard “Nav” Naviasky. He was the first guest on the show. He’s a helper and a hero. An historian and a comedian. His 20 year career at the FDNY included 9/11, the 2007 Deutsche Bank fire, and the 2017 Halloween terrorist truck attack. He was on the scene at some of the most harrowing fire calls of the last two decades. And he has bravely spoken out about the health effects he suffered as a result of exposures while on the job. He’s honest about the problems he’s faced, and he’s not letting it hold him back. His attitude is an inspiring look at how you handle adversity. And he’s back for a look back at the last year with Rob. The good and the bad.

So this 4th of July we invite you to kick back with a great conversation and an excellent bonus song from Nav himself. He’s just getting started, but once he hits his stride it all comes together. Frankie whips up a delicious Lemon Berry Firecracker Cake that’s a perfect treat for the holiday or any day that ends with a y. 

2022 has been a rough year for everyone, but first responders have been getting hit from all angles. But we’ve got your back.

“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.
