great concept + execusion
so wonderful to be a fly on the wall for all these doctors. great work team!
Beautifully told stories which humanize medicine
As a non-MD, I LOVE hearing what doctor lives are like. The Nocturnists tells the most beautiful stories that illustrate, hey, they’re humans, too. Awesome listen!
Really liked it. As a person not connected with the medical field at all (except as a patient), its amazing to actually consider a doctor’s “humanity”. I guess we are all just doing our best.
Also the podcast is amazingly edited! Makes it really engaging. 10/10
