The Podcast by KevinMD

Hosted by Kevin Pho, MD, The Podcast by KevinMD shares the stories of the many who intersect with our health care system but are rarely heard from.

There are many physician podcasts out there, and I was hesitant to throw my hat into the podcasting ring. After all, there are many physician-interviewers better at the craft than I am.

Then I thought back to the mission of KevinMD: To share the stories of the many who intersect with our health care system, but are rarely heard from. Over the years, KevinMD gave a voice to those in health care who may not be famous or have a big name. But their stories are no less powerful or important.

I want to bring these voices into the podcasting realm, so you can hear them tell their own stories, in their own words.

But their stories are no less powerful or important. ​I talk with KevinMD contributors who share their stories, in their own words. ​Each interview is designed to be 10 to 20 minutes in length: concise, digestible, and filled with information, insight, and inspiration.
