    “Having the Darkos describe their journey provided a solace that no sort of debt counseling would ever bring about. Anyways, this show is consistent in the fact that it always delivers gems and enlightens listeners. I’ve shared the podcast with my classmates. Please keep up the great work!”

Mayra W. ,

Great show!

Recently discovered this show. I can’t wait to dive into more episodes. Thank you for these real and insightful stories from real docs.

Invigorating and Inspiring

I stumbled upon Dr Darko and Dr Renee as I began exploring options to expand goals beyond just a clinical doc. I listened to an episode about them investing in real-estate and one of the guests they had on the show. Nii and Renee are hilarious, they bring on helpful guests and I appreciate learning things I never knew about. I would highly recommend for any physicians that want to get outside the box.
