Each episode, we dive into all things frustrating, weird, confusing, and even great about the odd world of retail pharmacy. For those dishing out drugs to the general public and wondering "What Am I Doing Here?", it's time you know... you're not alone.
Liquid Gold, Pharmacy Robberies, Texans: You're Not Alone
Thank you all first and foremost for bearing with me as I have a mini freak-out moment at the top of the show. It's just that covid vaccines are finally in my pharmacy and, let's be honest, I'm pretty nervous. Regardless, this week is packed with submissions and topics such as: what is your company's policy for an extra covid dose? We also discuss how patients aren't perfect and how pharm-robberies often receive little news coverage. Finally, for those battling it out in Texas, you're not alone.
Phones Calls Won't Stop, Nightmare Of The Week, Thoughts For A New Grad
We did it! And by "it", I mean we made it through another week. Let's celebrate together, shall we? This week on the show we talk about how the phones REFUSE to stop ringing (is just unplugging them all an option?) Your Patients Of The Week are top notch as usual including a phoned in C2 on the voicemail and our first ever NIGHTMARE OF THE WEEK. We end it all with some thoughts for a new graduate heading into the wonderful world of retail. Enjoy!
J & J Vaccine, What Do You LOVE About Retail Pharmacy?
What's up you wonderful pharmacy people, ready for another packed show? How about a LOVE themed episode? That's right, I didn't forget this year. In honor of Valentine's Day we talk about what you love about pharmacy and the responses may put a smile on your face. Also on the show this week: The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is out soon so that's awesome. We also have TWO of your Drs of the week so you know I'm gonna start yelling lol. Thanks for a fun show, guys... keep fighting.
The Vaccine: Bumps In The Road And... Job Satisfaction?
Not everyone is comfortable with change. Are you? I'm definitely not. And things are changing in the pharmacy right now. FAST. It's an adjustment but we're getting through it together. This week we take a closer look at a few of you who are actively administering the vaccine. It's not pretty... in fact some of your stories almost gave me nightmares. But there just may be a silver lining in the overall outlook of our profession. Enjoy!
Insanity Season, Staff Scheduling, Pandemic Anniversary
We all need a little time off, right? Right. Well, we're BACK with a jam-packed, stupid-fun episode this week. We get into the challenges of making staff schedules, your hilarious patients of the week (and one of mine as well) and end it with a covid anniversary discussion where I basically make fun of myself from a year ago. So crazy that it's been an entire year of this pandemic, right? Anyway, enjoy friends!

Love this podcast
I look forward to Friday knowing a new episode is coming out. The stories are real and put into perspective a day in the life of working in a pharmacy. Keep up the great work!
We are NOT alone!! Validation!
I swear sometimes the most insane things happen and your friends that don’t work in pharmacy think you’re exaggerating or totally insane. This show gives so much validation to the craziness that is pharmacy life. I enjoy the positive patients that Mitch sprinkles in when he can.
