This is it – the very first episode of The Extraordinary Friends Show!

I am so happy with how it turned out, and that is 100% due to my great guest, Steve Meade M.D., and co-host, Chris Alme.
In the show, Steve tells us about:

  • Who are the worst kinds of patients
  • What he hates most about his job
  • The grossest thing he’s seen as a doctor
  • Plus all the good things about being a doctor

Steve also lets us in on a dirty little secret – that being what the admitting nurse writes down when you don’t give a reason for why you want to see your doctor

Both Steve and Chris are really witty guys with easy laughs and together we had a really fun conversation.

Lots of interesting topics covered (see the Show Notes below) and lots of good laughs.

Check it out, and then please…let me know what you think in the Comments section below.

Stephen Meade M.D. and Chris Alme on Extraordinary Friends – “It wasn’t a dumpster fire.”

Podcast Introduction

Brian: Hi, this is Brian and you’re listening to the very first episode of The Extraordinary Friends Show, a combination public access TV show and podcast, where I sit down with a couple of my good friends and talk about their careers, hobbies, and life experiences. In this episode, my co-host is my longtime friend, Chris Alme, and together we talk with fellow poker buddy, and friend Dr. Stephen Meade, known, of course, to us as Steve, about what it’s like to be a family physician. Steve tells us about who are the worst kind of patients, what he hates most about his job, and the grossest thing he’s seen as a doctor.

Brian: Plus, of course, all the good things about being a doctor. Steve also lets us in on a dirty little secret, that being what the admitting nurse writes down when you don’t give a reason for why you wanna see your doctor. Both Steve and Chris are really witty guys, with easy laughs and together we had a really fun conversation. And if you stick around to the very end I’ve added some post show outtakes. Pretty funny stuff, so enjoy.
