I briefly told a story the other day of choking on a throat lozenge moments before we started the show. Then a listener named Nancy sent this link in an email. It's a technique a guy came up with in a choking emergency when there's no one else around to help you.

I have NO idea that this would work. My gut tells me the other forms of self-heimlich would be better. We offer no medical opinion or endorsement of this. But the first time I watched this video I couldn't stop laughing because the move he makes in this technique just wasn't what I was expecting to see at all. Whether it's for a laugh or to save your life, you can see the video below.
