#88 The OI Show: Turning your Medical Optical into a Fashion Accessory with Fabio Pineda
I always learn great things from working with Dr. Kading. You should check out his podcast!
Just listened and found this podcast to be very interesting and entertaining, loved the topics and guests! Will definitely be back for more episodes.
Just listening to this made my eye better
When I poke my eyes (because they are dry), they hurt bad. Knowing that my wiper may not be as greased as it should be... well that truth brought a tear to my eye, which in turn made it better. Thank you OI show for fixing my dry eyes!
