    Authentic Medicine Podcast #7: Blockchain Technology for Healthcare That is Owned by Physicians with Leah Houston MD

    Authentic Medicine Podcast #7: Blockchain Technology for Healthcare That is Owned by Physicians with Leah Houston MD

    Dr. Leah Houston MD talks about blockchain technology to help solve the healthcare crisis. It is a distributed ledger of your credentials as a doctor, which gives doctors ownership of your right to work.  This will be a PHYSICIAN ONLY community.  It is a form of a healthcare economy OWNED by these physicians, giving us a say and right to work.  This is a young company and an investment opportunity.  Full disclosure, I am not an investor at this time and YOU MUST READ EVERYTHING before you decide to join

    Authentic Medicine Podcast #3: The Only Funny Man Left in Medicine - ZDoggMD

    Authentic Medicine Podcast #3: The Only Funny Man Left in Medicine - ZDoggMD

    In this episode I talk with Zubin Damania and his history as a doctor (yes, he still sees patients) as well as our common interests: humor, side gigs, laughing, the Big Lebowski, etc. ZDoggMD talks about picking his alias name and it somehow involved me! Zubin mentions the controversy he has had with other docs and I think his point of view hasn’t been heard. Please go to the show notes at http://authenticmedicine.com/authentic-medicine-podcast/ for more pics and videos.

Funny, witty and satirical

Funny and satirical of today’s medicine. Just listened to it on the way home from a long day at ground and made me laugh.

The king prevented my burnout before it started

This schmuck is a total blowhard. (Or is this blowhard a total schmuck?). He just praddles on and on...

Truthfully, and without my knowing it, dr Doug is probably one of the biggest reasons I can avoid anger and burnout in this broken system. As an avid blog reader since early in med school (back when the placebo gazette first launched), I learned how to make fun of the insanity, rather than be consumed by it, before having to fight it first hand. Now I teach my students and residents the same (call it trickle-down placebo wisdom?)

Been looking forward to the podcasts since you announced ‘em, and clearly they won’t disappoint! I’d highly recommend to anyone in the trenches. Thanks Doug!
