What if this podcast was a musical?

This is amazing! Loved the episode on Heck No Techno — “What if this podcast was a musical?” Glad that Dan is illuminating the state of our healthcare system.

Informative and Uplifting

Dan covers the heavy topic of healthcare costs in a way that’s light enough to be uplifting. The stories shared speak truth in a way that makes me laugh, and sometimes cry. If you’re struggling with chronic health conditions, I highly recommend this show! You’ll most likely learn something, but more importantly, you’ll know you’re not alone when you are on the phone with insurance for hours on end :)

"Like" "Like" "Like"

Such interesting content but listening to this generation is painful. Do they know how to speak without sounding like idiots who overuse the word "like"? Listen to the same generation on any BBC podcast. No one, except Americans, uses the word.
