Episode 19 – The Medical Mystery Tour

in Check In

Reports of my death are extremely exaggerated. Really. If I were dead, it would be a lot harder to do this podcast. Or it would be a zombie podcast with a lot of moaning and such. But I am back for another check-in, and I’ve logged my share of time in waiting rooms for this month. And possibly for next month too. And the one after.

This week we couldn’t get an audio promo for the podcast, so we’ve got the soundtrack from the video trailer for Pip Ballentine and Tee Morris’ new novel Phoenix Rising, which will be released on April 26th, 2011. This is the first novel in their Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series. From the few glimpses I’ve seen, this should be a smashing romp.

Enjoy the show. See you next week!

Listening to this again today and I can’t believe how fast things can move when your body does go wrong. I’m so glad things have turned out ok. Your tweets made me laugh about not having Wi-Fi in the ER!

Medicine is a weird environment. I don’t mind things moving when something is going wrong, but the enforced waiting when things are going wrong, and the false sense of urgency when things aren’t really serious? Not a fan.

Glad you got some amusement out of it. I killed the battery of my phone trying to fight boredom on that day.
