I’m proud to announce that to go alongside the “Life After Cardiac Arrest” book we now have a podcast!
The podcast is hosted by me, Paul Swindell and is conversations with people whose lives have been affected by a cardiac arrest, whether that be as a patient, partner, life-saver or health professional. The podcast aims to give insight, information and hope to any others going through this life-changing event.
It’s something I’ve talked about doing for about 18 months now and I’ve finally got around to getting everything together and giving it a go. It’s my first attempt at anything like this so please be easy on me! (and my guests!)
A big thank you to all those who said yes to appearing on it and to Matt Nielson for his tireless editing.
If you like it, please do leave a positive review and follow it. Hopefully, the more who hear it the more it will help and also further our cause. We’d also appreciate you spreading the word by sharing it on your social media channels.
Where to listen
Soon, it will also be available via iTunes, Google Podcasts, tuneIniHeartRadio and your favourite podcast player.
After our first meet-up in February 2015, I realised I was not alone. It was the first time since my cardiac arrest the previous year that I had spoken face-to-face with someone who had experienced what I had. This was also true for my wife, who also happened to be my lifesaver. From that meet-up, the idea of SCA UK was born. Since then, we have achieved a considerable amount, primarily providing information, resources and support to others in a similar situation but also raising the profile of survivorship and the need for better post-discharge care. We are starting to get traction in this, and with the formation of the charity, I genuinely believe we have a bright future ahead and will make a significant difference in the lives of many who join our ranks.
