Refreshing and invigorating

High level candid discussions with leaders in the medical space, which is vast and incredibly diverse. Dr. Shapiro is an amazing host, and his conversations with his guests could be easily featured on NPR or any major platform. They're that great! Congratulations on 5 years! As a current resident, I'm excited to keep tuning in as you continue to celebrate the diversity of "the space".
