Fun way to learn about the path of other docs

I’ve really enjoyed and appreciated the window into the journey of others. The most fun podcast I listen to regularly!

DrMikeWM ,

Great guests and insight

I love the chemistry between the hosts. They discuss real issues that affect today’s physician and don’t hold anything back. They also often get guests that I don’t see anywhere else. Keep up the great work!

Obhj ,

Thank you!

Thanks again so much for having me on to share my story. It is so great to hear these stories of physicians and what has occurred on their individual paths through life. What a great idea!
