Love The Podcast
The podcast is so awesome. Just recently got hooked on to it. Trying to listen as much as i can.
Perfect dose of info
Am I Dying is just right for this boomer. I like the rapport, the pacing and, most of all, the information. These are like-able doctors, authoritative but self-deprecating. They're good at tackling just one pressing question at a time. If the listener hasn't had these worries, I'm sure someone they know someone who has. Definitely worth subscribing. Highly recommend.
