With 50 episodes of the "Consumer's Guide To Health" podcast in the archives, I can say that I have done my share of interviewing. That process will resume soon with the refactoring of the podcast and its rebirth in January 2015 as the "Live A Smart Life" podcast.
However, I am rarely the topic of the interview - the interviewee, if you will. The roles have rarely been reversed. Until now.
Jason Ward, a physical therapist from Memphis, TN, has put together a great podcast entitled "Mechanical Care Forum". I had the opportunity to be interviewed for his podcast with a full 90 minute interview appearing over the span of two podcast episodes.
Jason started the "Mechanical Care Forum" podcast - "sharing experience for improved patient care" - in March 2014. As Jason notes on the site, "I hope to, in some small way, contribute to making available great content that inspires, educates, and entertains others with the same interests". There are now 38 episodes with some tremendous clinicians and researchers. The episode list is a who's who of mechanical care:
Episode 1: Mark Werneke
Episode 2: Robert Medcalf
Episode 3: Ron Doneslon
Episode 4: Richard Rosedale
Episodes 5-6: Audrey Long
Episodes 7-8: Dave Oliver
Episodes 9-10: Grant Watson
Episodes 11-12: Mark Miller
Episodes 13-14: Colin Davies
Episodes 15-16: Ron Schenk
Episodes 17-18: Stephen May
Episode 19: Troy McGill
Episodes 20-21: Gabor Sagi
Episodes 22-23: Ron Bybee
Episodes 24-25: Ezequiel Gherscovici
Episodes 26-27: Ted Dreisinger
Episodes 28-29: Brian Mulligan
Episodes 30-31: Helen Clare
Episodes 32-33: Gary Jacob
Episodes 34-35: Dr. Steven Heffner
Episodes 36-37: Allan Besselink
Episode 38: Jon Weinberg
It is quite an honor to be included in such an illustrious list of clinicians and researchers. Many thanks to Jason for what was a very enjoyable and fun experience!
