Grand Junction Fire Department Captain James Kavanaugh has recently taken on a new and novel job for a firefighter: podcast host. ”Going Interior,” GJFD’s new wellness podcast, aired its first episode April 1. Kavanaugh, who oversees GJFD’s academy, said the department’s communications staff has had the idea for a podcast for a while, they just didn’t know the format. ”I think it’s been valuable, it’s felt like going out on a limb for sure,” Kavanaugh said. “This is an uncomfortable spot, but I’m hopeful pushing ourselves to this point and opening up and sharing these stories opens things up and creates a better connection with both the people we serve and the people within our workplace.” The show was created during some downtime in between the department’s academies.
