Provocative yet practical

I love listening along as Rae explores each topic with different healthcare experts- in particular, pushing them on what they recommend a listener actually DO with what they’re talking about. The episode on how to be an anti-racist leader, and the telehealth stuff is particularly good!

Engaging Podcast with an Outstanding Host and Guests

This is a must-listen podcast for anyone who supports the healthcare industry. The continent is engaging and timely, though many of the strategies on leadership or focusing on racial inequities in healthcare are evergreen pieces. The issues are also dissected in a way that anyone who is interested in understanding a complex, messy, and mission critical industry can absorb the thoughtful analysis and suggestions.

Episode 4 is amazing

I learned so much from Craig Pirner in episode 4. He is an amazing leadership expert and it was fascinating to hear about how leaders can be effective during a global crisis.
