Podcast #27 “smaccDUB with MJ Slabbert & Doug Lynch”

Capture Expect a steady  drip drip of great podcast and online material over the next few months as an army of great presenters, speakers and em professional prepare to upload their incredible talks from this years smaccDUB conference. Keep a watchfull eye out for talks from Simon Carley , Scott Weingart and Victoria Brazil to name a few. In anticipation of this great content I’m joined by MJ Slabbert and Doug Lynch to chat about their highlights and top talks at this years SMACC conference. We chat about the impact social media has had on us and how we see it being used in future #FOAMed, our favourite SMACC talk and meeting a few of our heroes. 

Our community of educators, Paramedics, EM Physicians and SMACC followers (or SMACC’ites as MJ referred to) is constantly pushing the boundaries on social media by discovering new ways to share knowledge. This conference was a marvellous excuse for me to re-discover my podcasting mojo and allowed me an opportunity to interview some of my favourite SoMe characters in the #FOAMed world.  It was this same community that coined the concept of #FOAMed only a few years earlier, free open access medical education. It was a podcast that I did with Andy Neill in 2012 that struck home how influential podcasting has been in the growth of #FOAMed. Join me, as I continue to play around with new apps, platforms, periscopes and mobile  pod casting tools.

During this podcast I used Periscope for the first time. This is not the first podcast I have recorded (see my Youtube Channel) but the first time I’ve used this app. Please watch, and leave a comment.
