During this conversation, we discuss her Polish heritage, her love of pole, and her restorative Sunday practices.
Yehia Mishriki! Yehia is a 63yo physician, Christian, and father. I met Dr. Mishriki during my Internal Medicine rotations and I have been quietly dogging him ever since to sit down for a conversation. And it has been worth the wait.
We discussed how his life changed over four hours: becoming a widower 28yrs ago during the birth of his second daughter.

And we even cover Star Trek, Near Death Experiences, and a quantum physics explanation for the existence of God.
Christina G! Christina is a 26yo future surgeon, former Christian, and current leader. She spoke at the Student Clinician’s Ceremony that kicked off my third year of medical school, and ever since then I’ve been itching to sit down with her. In this conversation, we discuss her complicated relationship with a Christian faith, the separation of a cash register, and the importance of integrity.
Sudhir M! Sudhir is a 25yo third-year medical student, Indian who grew up in America, and part farmer.

Lucy Horton! Lucy is a 72yo hippy, an activist, and an entrepreneur. I met Lucy through an attending physician, Dr. Dehoff, and I am glad to bring her perspective to the podcast. During this conversation, we discuss her cross country ramblings as a young hippy, her 15yrs on a commune in Vermont with 18 other people, joining an Episcopal Church because she wanted to attend school on Sundays, and serving as a volunteer escort for women’s health clinics.
Camille Imbo! Camille is a 25yo fourth year medical student, an older sister, and a black woman. I met her during a SELECT session this year and the rawness of her laugh put her on my radar. During this conversation, we discuss the importance of names and how they change identity, the politicization of blackness, the inseparable mix of purpose and potential, and the soulmate bond between herself and her grandmother.
