I pity the healthcare leader who doesn't listen to the HEALTHCARE RAP! I need my flava of the week, to stay in the FLOW. Seriously Jared continues to do an amazing job with this insightful, innovative, energy filled, entertaining podcast. He has super guests, keeps things real and causal, and always delivers value. Not only is the content stellar, but he production value is solid as well. Please keep it going.
