Finally Frugal ,

AMAZING. INCREDIBLE. ICONIC.

Dr. Nii hasn’t missed yet! Each episode has somehow managed to introduce a topic that entertains yet teaches. In such a short span I’ve learned about side hustles, global medicine and pop culture while laughing the entire way. Truly one of my faves.

Phil from AMEC ,

AMEC 2022

My name is Phil and I just met Dr. Renée Darko at AMEC Conference. Her energy was radiant and inviting; similar to how it is on the show. Drs Nii and Renée Darko are doing amazing work by educating us on how to leverage and take command of our careers in unconventional ways. Even though I’m only a pre Med right now, I love love love listening to this podcast because it has enhanced my view of the potential medical career that I can have. Thank you guys for everything you do. Keep up the GREAT work
