My name is Dave Denniston. I started podcasting in 2014 as my way of paying back physicians for helping my family with our miracle child, Evangeline, who was born at a mere 12.4 ounces/ 23 weeks gestationally.

Through this journey, I've had the honor of interviewing Dr. Jim Dahle (The White Coat Investor), Dr. Kevin Pho (KevinMD), Dr. Pamela Wible, Dr. Dike Drummond, Dr. Nii Darko, and so many more.

This is my personal podcast, dedicated to physicians. It is focused on “financial freedom” and just as importantly, how physicians can engage in healthy & a prosperous mindset! My philosophy is that we can all learn from others and who better to talk to physicians than other physicians and experts in various areas!

I want to see every physician lower their taxes, destroy their debt, and enjoy a joyous, liberated lifestyle so that they can focus on what they love most- their families, their patients, and the activities that give them joy.

I speak and interview folks on a whole host of issues that are important to physicians- burnout, how to protect their families, divorce, taxes, medical school debt, how to be a blogger & author, how to start an independent practice, and much more. I also occasionally speak about the resources that I am discovering.

My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your personal and professional life. If you are a physician- or aspire to be- then this podcast is for you!

I typically post once per week, sometimes more often. Make sure to subscribe and stay tuned. The best is yet to come!

    S2, Episode 22-The 5 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

    Have you ever read a book you were so excited about, that you couldn't stop talking about? Then, when you go about your day, you can't stop thinking about it.
    You read through the book, once, twice, maybe even three times- struck by a new idea, a new thought when you read it again. As a matter of fact, it may happen each time you flip a page or turn to a new chapter.
    That's what happened to me when I read John Maxwell's book 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership and I had to share them with you.

    He is a pediatrician. However, I’m guessing he hasn’t always wanted to be a doctor. He got his undergrad at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and then took classes in theology at the Lutheran School of Theology. He took a couple of years off and then pursued becoming a DO and a doctor.
    Years later- he shared with me that he is finishing steps of a buy out to the regional medical corporation.
    Please help me welcome Dr. Gary Snead.
    In this podcast, you will learn from Gary:
    - Why he went into theology school before medical school (& how it had a positive outcome on his career)
    - How his delay in paying his student debt ballooned his balance from $30k to over $100k (Hint: He went to school in the 80's)
    - How 2 of his medical school classmates grinded through medical school and paid off debt while they were there
    - His inspirational life advice to residents & fellows
    - How Gary wrestled with his money and the decisions he made which changed how his money was managed

Customer Reviews

NYU neuro ,

Great financial podcast for docs

Definitely a great podcast as talks about financial topics similar to the white coat investor. While not as in-depth as the white coat investor I love Dave’s enthusiasm as well as practicality regarding taxes, Budget and debt.

Dr Peter wishnie ,

This podcast is a must listen if you are a physician. Great advice for investing and on helping you with your finances. Dave takes a complex subject and makes it easy to listen to.
