Lively & thought-provoking

As a blogger at 33charts.com for many years, it's not surprise that Dr V knows a good story - and a good storyteller - when he finds them. This podcast introduces some really difficult topics, but they're handled with balance and grace. He's also managed to corral some amazing guests who share wide-ranging perspectives that are so important in healthcare today.
