Thoughtful, insightful and actionable! 🙌

Whether you’re well established as someone innovating at the intersection of medicine and AI, or just getting started as a catalyst for change - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Dr. Topol and Dr. Verghese do an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of successfully navigating an ever changing healthcare landscape - with leaders who are actually in the field themselves. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Great but...

While the content and speakers are thoughtful, insightful and interesting I find the quality of sound of the podcast to be quite low. Sounds electronic almost. Please improve on the sound quality!!
