inspired!

As a former software engineer trying to bootstrap our own medical education company it is so inspiring to hear the stories of other physicians using their talents to do amazing things outside of the normal prescribed career path in medicine. LOVED the sketchy med interview!!!

Brilliant and Inspiring

This podcast is a must listen for anyone interested in medicine, entrepreneurship, or art. Whether you're a student currently developing your own hustle or an established professional looking for your next project, this podcast is nothing short of inspiring! I loved how the first episode focused on travel and the importance of putting one's self in new (and potentially uncomfortable) situations. It's definitely something that everyone can relate to regardless of their background. I can't wait for the next episode!

Great podcast for aspiring medical students/physicians

This is one my favorite podcasts to listen to on my way to work. It takes a different approach to traditional medicine and incorporates entrepreneurship within medicine. Highly recommend for any aspiring/current physicians!
