Jaim W. ,

Fun to listen to with great content.

This is a great podcast! It is well thought out and well executed. Alex is funny and educational and really has a good pulse on what is going on in pharmacy. This is exactly the information I’ve been looking for as I plan to pivot my career in pharmacy! I’ve been binge-listening to the episodes and have enjoyed all of them so far.

Laura L, PharmD ,

Incredibly insightful!

I am 14 years out of school, and am on job #4 ~ I’m constantly reinventing myself; growth is so important to being happy. Alex captures that idea, and presents the information concisely and with enthusiasm!

Brian Bisher ,

Alex is a host who genuinely cares

I was hooked after one episode, and just like I did with Breaking Bad on Netflix, I binged this whole first season of the Happy PharmD. Alex does a great job delivering insightful viewpoints on the profession of pharmacy and opens up avenues in our profession that need to be discussed if we are to move our profession forward. I'll be sharing with all of my friends in conversation. As we all know, pharmacy talk ALWAYS comes up (or dominates the conversation). Looking forward to the next season!
