Doctor Robert Huizenga Interview – Part One

Gross Anatomy Podcast
Robert Huizenga, M.D., also known as Dr. H on TV’s The Biggest Loser, is a former team physician for the LA Raiders and was president of the NFL Physician’s Society.

After serving as an NFL physician, he wrote the book — You’re Okay, It’s Just a Bruise: A Doctor’s Sideline Secrets About Pro Football’s Most Outrageous Team. The book would become inspiration for Oliver Stone’s film Any Given Sunday and helped spark a national debate on anabolic steroids and other ergogenic (sport enhancing) aids.

We talk with Dr. Huizenga about sports medicine, Any Given Sunday and more in this episode — the first episode of a special two part podcast!

HYPE

We are so excited to have the author of HYPE, Dr. Nina Shapiro, on our show! HYPE is a book that explores medical myths and exaggerated claims so people can better understand what’s real and what’s not. We talk with Dr. Shapiro about her life as a surgeon and how HYPE came to be. She also answers our HYPE questions and gives us a sneak peek of what she’s writing now.

New Year, New Health & Medical TV

2020 Medical TV.jpg
There’s a new slate of health and medical TV shows premiering this year. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Netflix show, The Goop Lab, is already causing controversy so we discuss why some doctors have a problem with it. Ryan Murphy takes a stab at recreating one of the most feared nurses, Nurse Ratched, in the scripted show Ratched. There’s also some reality shows that might be too hard to watch like My Feet Are Killing Me which follows a podiatrist as she takes on fungal infections. All this and more!

End of Year Podcast!

End of Year PodcastIt’s our end of year podcast so we’re discussing regrets, new resolutions and items we want to add to our bucket list. And then, inevitably, we get sidetracked and discuss the greatness of Joe Pesci and other entertainment performances that made our year.

Thanks for listening and happy holidays! We will return in two weeks with an all new episode.
