This was a surprise episode for me. What I thought might be a typical (but interesting) conversation with a highly qualified and skilled Emergency Physician (Dr. Stephen Parnis) about all things medicine, health and maybe Covid, turned out to be something much bigger, better and more powerful. For me anyway. Compassion, empathy, sharing bad news with patients, being with people as they die (the greatest privilege of being a doctor, according to Stephen), dealing with daily trauma, being calm and present in the middle of chaos, identity, the fine line between discipline and obsession and lots more. Enjoy.
