Description

"Knock Knock, Hi! with the Glaucomfleckens" dives into the highs, lows, and WTFs of healthcare. Whether you're in the medical field, live with a healthcare worker, or broke your arm once and are still paying off your medical bills, this is a must-listen. Join Will and Kristin Flanary (aka the Glaucomfleckens) for candid chats with leading healthcare voices like Dr. Mike and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. Discover fun facts about eyeballs, hear relatable stories from medical training, and sneak a peek into the U.S. health insurance industry (spoiler alert: it's not great!). We'll share our own perspectives of being a patient or family member experiencing the healthcare system. And, of course, we explore the question on everyone's minds: "Why has Dr. Glaucomflecken never had his eyes dilated?" Combining science with humor and a dash of snark, we unpack the human side of healthcare.

Recently discovered Dr. G on YouTube and I've been laughing along with all those poor doctors. I knew what the "stress rash" before the Derm Doctor! I enjoyed this episode and looking forward to continuing to listen in.

I've been waiting for this podcast for so long and it is everything I had hoped for!!! My husband (not medical) and I (anesthesia) watch your YouTube videos all the time! They always make me smile, laugh and/or nod enthusiastically! Thank you for making a podcast that I can listen to on the way to work, to start the day off with a healthy dose of humor. And as a mother of a child born prematurely, I really appreciated Dr Gunter talking about her struggles with many of the same issues we've been through. Thank you for a wonderful episode and the podcast in general!
