    Wanting to learn as much as I can, I'm curious to know if listening to podcasts such as FlightBridge, emcrit, etc. would be informative or over my head. Are there any podcasts directed more towards a Basic level, or should I stick with Khan Academy A&P for now?

    When it's available, I listen to the NAEMSP Prehospital Emergency Care Podcast, I've enjoyed that.
    Also, EM Clerkship is pretty good - it's targeted at medical students doing their EM clerkship, so it has an in-hospital focus.

    If you're looking for reviews of EMS knowledge, Albany Med has recordings of their EMS in-services (last updated Nov. 2016), and those aren't bad.

    I like the podcast as well but i am a little biased since one of our medical directors runs it.

    5 PC. If you are up on your wildernes stuff, it won't be new, but if new to mtn med there is good stuff. Some audio quality issues.

    Wilderness and Environmental Med Live (Wilderness Medical Society)
    8 PC. Sporadic but some good stuff. They started updating it again this fall about bimonthly

    I'm sue your know about it... if not listen to it. Not really EMS though, but given your avatar pic and name, it is relevant to you.

    Emergency Medicine Cases, Road to Resus, The Resus Bay, EMCrit Podcast, FlightBridgeED and Second Shift are all in my podcast library.

    There used to be one called Pharmacology for the Prehospital provider, by Dr. Jeffrey Guy. It was great...

    The Retrieval Report seems broad enough topic-wise, but I suppose it really boils down to what you—the viewer—are looking to gain.

    Why not both? Several of the ones mentioned here will certainly discuss things that are above your current level of understanding. That's OK. Just listen to the ones that you find interesting and skip the ones you don't. Look up things that you hear that you don't know much about.

    Tips from Crit/ FlightCrit seems decent. It’s fairly new, but there’s some good advice for people looking to get into flight medicine.

    The podcasts are all relatively short and to the point thus far, which I enjoy.

    Even as a medical student, EMCrit is often above my head, but it's an excellent podcast. EM Basic is another great podcast that's more focused on the initial ED workup of various chief complaints, but it can be great for EMTs and medics as well in figuring out what the important questions are to ask.

    I’ve been enjoying EMSNation quite a bit lately. Lots of good CCTMC debriefings of the conferences and years missed. I feel it’s much more encompassing than AMTC would seem to be.

    Bumping an old thread bc i didn't want to start a new one:

    If you are looking for EMS related ones check out https://www.ems1.com/ems-education/articles/327332048-The-10-best-podcasts-for-EMTs-paramedics/

    Also https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/ems-insight/id1390591020 seems to be a decent up and coming podcast.

    Podcasts can be tough, because casters need to sometimes blur the line between being educational and entertaining, as well as appealing to an audience that spans the spectrum from uneducated to highly specialized.

    Current Podcasts (not EMS related):
    The Bugle (the older stuff with Jon Oliver is even funnier)
    Management Tools
    Career Tools (although I have been less than impressed with much of the advice on this one)
    Hackable (definitely one of my favorites)
    Hacking Humans
    Limetown

    IT Podcasts:
    Tips from the Server Room
    The Cyberwire
    Sysadmin Tools
    Down the Security Rabbithole
