This light hearted podcast is filled with many laughs and tons of information. The episodes are filled with information that I never knew. It is a must listen to podcast. I look forward to Thursday’s.
This is a great concept but these guys tell terrible jokes. They try to do this snarky banter, accusing one another of having different medical problems or being on medications. If it was funny I’m sure I’d enjoy it, but it sounds forced and makes me cringe.
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.
