Love the back story for each person he interviews. A real in depth look at some leaders in cancer care.
Top notch podcast
Really enjoying this podcast. I think it's the best one in oncology today. Jack is very objective and open-minded but doesn't stray from discussing controversial issues. Guests are terrific.
I am a huge fan of this podcast, and love learning more about the “rising giants” in oncology. Particularly enjoy the combination of research updates with personal journeys/stories of these amazingly accomplished and amazingly diverse individuals - makes our growing oncology world feel a little closer.
