@DaPerzer ,

Great podcast even for those with no medical background

I like to learn about the industries and technologies that impact my life and investments so I figured I’d check this podcast out. Started with the episode on Virtual Reality and found it really insightful to hear the perspectives of medical professionals. If you invest in stocks/startups or programmer then I highly recommend that episode. I’ll be listening to more episodes and will update my review after I hit the 10 episode mark!
