    S03_E01 - Real Talk with An Emergency Medicine Doctor

    There are seemingly as many careers in medicine as there are lakes in Minnesota (and we're talking well over 10,000 of those...), but many of the most intense jobs in the field are found in the Emergency Department.  It takes a certain kind of person to want to become a physician, and on another level to want to practice Emergency Medicine in a Level I Trauma Center!  Thankfully, there are doctors like this, and for our first episode of Season 3, we'll be joined by Emergency Medicine Physician and Toxicologist, Dr. John Cole to help us get a glimpse into this highest-of-stakes and stressful environment. 

    What's life like there?  What are the biggest challenges healthcare professionals in the ED face?  And how does one cope with the stresses of such place?   Join us for a conversation addressing these questions, plus a few of Jon's most memorable cases and the debut of an all-new segment for Season 3 - Magic Wand!  Tune in!

    S02_E24 - Let's Talk Kidneys!

    Kidneys.  They made Dr. Hilden's top 3 favorite organ list in a recent poll - but why?  What do they actually do?  What are kidney stones (and better yet, how can one best avoid them)?  And if we really only need one, why do we have two?

    Join us for the final episode of Season 2, as Dr. Hilden and Hennepin Healthcare Neprhologist (that's a fancy word for Kidney Doctor) Dr. Jennifer Wu explore the wide world of kidneys!  Turns out, they're an essential piece of our biological puzzle.  But what happens when things go wrong?   What are some of the common issues with them?  And what can be done to help keep our kidneys healthy?  Tune in and find out!

    S02_E23 - 10 Tips for Reducing Pain at Work!

    There's no doubt about it, Monday mornings can be painful.  And for many of us, the pain doesn't stop there!  Work is a part of life, and there's nothing we can really do to speed up the day or make your boss a little less nagging, but in this episode we'll explore 10 tips for reducing the other pains we can experience at work, with Hennepin Healthcare's Catherine Justice (PT, DPT, CST, C-IAYT, E-RYT).
    Catherine is an Integrative Physical Therapist and the Program Manager for Integrative Health at Hennepin Healthcare and she'll walk us through 10 essentials for making work, and life in general, a little less painful.  From the importance of hydrating and fidgeting (!)- to the benefits of active and passive rejuvenation and improving your ergonomics, this episode has lots of great tips to help get you through the day with less pain.  Join us!

    S02_E22 - All About Eyes!

    Got eyes?  Many of us do.  Got issues with your eyes?  Turns out many of us have that as well!  From dry eyes to floaters, to reduced sharpness in our vision - or worse, glaucoma and cataracts - we're all likely to experience some of the more common issues with our eyes over the course of our lives. 

    But what are these conditions and how can we best care for our eyesight?  On Episode 22 of the podcast, we'll be joined by the Department Chair of Ophthalmology at Hennepin Healthcare, Dr. Kevin Engel (MD, PhD).  He'll help us break down the most common eye conditions, provide useful tips on how to keep your eyes healthy and dispel some of the myths around eyes and eyesight.  He'll also make sure we know the golden rule regarding the "keeps the red out" eyedrops (don't use them!) and explain once and for all, what the difference is between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist!  Join us!

    S02_E21 - COVID-19 - It's Been a Minute...

    Remember COVID-19?  Of course, we all do (it was a global pandemic), but what's the latest on it?  It seems like it's been a bit absent from the conversation lately, especially in the media.  But is it still a major public health concern?  What have we learned and what still remains a mystery?

    On Episode 21, we thought it would be a good idea to dive back into the topic and check on the current status of the disease from a trusted source - Dr. Hilden!  From the initial suspicions to the latest vaccines and treatments, we've learned a lot by rolling with the punches over the past few years.  On this episode, we'll explore where we've been and where we may be headed, as well as the best practices for living with a virus that's likely to be a part of our experience going forward.  Join us!

    S02_E20 - Mental Health Stressors...and Strategies!

    Be it social media, the change of the seasons, the holidays, or just the everyday stresses of life; one thing is for certain - they all can take a toll on our mental health.  The good news is, these days we're talking about it more than ever.  And the more we talk about it, the more normal the conversation becomes and the more we can do to help ourselves and others. 

    On Episode 20 we'll have a conversation with Hennepin Healthcare Psychiatrist Dr. Katie Thorsness, to give us a more detailed picture of the stressors that hinder, and strategies that can improve mental health.  This is a very important conversation that pertains to [literally] everyone.  Learn about tips for keeping our brains healthy and how to notice issues and support, not only yourself but others who may be going through a tough time.  It's an essential topic that needs all the attention we can give it these days.  Join us and let's show these brains some love!
