impressed physician ,

Clear, insightful and thoughtful

I first listened to Ethan as a guest on Peter Attia’s podcast and was delighted to learn that he now has his own podcast.

I find his interviews to be easy to follow and I LOVE the pauses he takes to summarize important points and add his own emphasis and commentary.

Ethan seems to be a doctor who thinks critically and thoughtfully about the evidence and science and translates that into plain English for us to digest.

Excited to listen

Having followed Ethan for some time now, read his writing, and listened to him on other podcasts, I am sure this will be excellent!
Update. Listened to first episode twice. Well-done. Great guest with an amazing story. I’m excited for the next episode.
