The Real History of Modern Medicine with Christy Chapin, PhD
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
3M ago
History is a funny thing. Often, we think we know what happened either as we experience it personally or have trusted sources that give us an account. However, it depends on who is relaying the information, and the prior biases and perspectives. The goal of a good historian is to gather information from multiple sources and figure out what happened and why it played out the way it did. In today's episode we focus on why the US ended up with a third party payer system left to the insurance companies to dictate payment and generally how physicians can practice medicine. It Begins with Insurance ..read more

It's been a while since I've done an episode and it's mainly because I've had a COVID rant percolating for some time. So I just had to let it out now that the president (accidentally?) mentioned that the pandemic of COVID-19 is over. In this episode, I cover mandates, vaccines, public health policy and much more. A frank discussion with you about where we are and where we need to go as a country with this irritating virus and resulting policies. This is an expansion on my speech from episode 156 and a broader discussion with Dr. David Graham in episode 143. Learn more about your ad choices. Vi ..read more

Opening the Medical Practice of Your Dreams with Chris Habig
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
5M ago
In survey after survey, the number one satisfier for physicians - by a long way - is their relationship with patients. Anything you can do to improve or deepen that relationship makes the work better and decreases the incidence of burnout. Obviously, barriers put in the way that detract from creating a deeper relationship with patients makes the job of medicine less desirable. One way a lot of doctors have gone is to practice using a direct care model which removes many of the obstacles in place within modern medicine from forming that all important bond with their patients. Getting Help to St ..read more

The Corruption of Evidence Based Medicine with Dr. John Abramson
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
6M ago
Occasionally, you come across an interview or subject that blows you away with incredible claims that are both out in the open - and yet invisible. Today's guest is an author and expert witness for some of the biggest pharmaceutical cases of this century, Dr. John Abramson. He reveals the rot that centers not only in the pharmaceutical industry but also the institutions that are constructed to serve as its guardrails - the medical journals, federal agencies, and guideline committees. In some What Would Physicians Say if They Knew Medical Journals Had No Access to Data for Peer Review? The most ..read more

A Talent Agency for Physicians with Ethan Nkana
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
7M ago
What is one common difference between the hiring process of most professionals with advanced degrees and those in sports and talent industries? The use of talent agents. People dedicated to finding their clients jobs, negotiating the terms, and essentially doing all of the analytical work to determine market value for the "talent."  What if the Talent were Physicians? Raised by a physician mother, my guest today is Ethan Nkana, who didn't enter the world of medicine as a doctor but instead got his JD and MBA to enter the world of hospital administration. Ethan cut his teeth negotiating ph ..read more

Trading a Hammer for a History. Dr. Blake Miller on Functional Medicine
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
8M ago
I confess that I hold a lot of biases when it comes to various surgical specialties. One such bias is that orthopedic surgeons - especially trauma - are not deep thinkers. My guest today completely turns that prejudice on its head as we discuss the role of nutrition and vitality in disease and recovery rates. Setting the Hammer Down Obviously, an orthopedic trauma surgery focuses their care on treating patients with fractures sustained in injuries. However, Dr. Miller now looks beyond the obvious mechanical or lab-based problems that patients present with. He uses some principles of functional ..read more

Roe v. Wade Goes Down. What's Next? with Elizabeth Nolan Brown
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
9M ago
In 1973, the US Supreme Court ruled on the Roe v. Wade case and concluded that Americans have a constitutional right to an abortion up to viability of the fetus. That has been the law of the land... until now (or at least very soon). Roe v. Wade Overturned A few weeks ago, a draft majority decision by the Court was leaked which showed that there was a majority of justices on the Supreme Court who were going to rule in favor of the state of Mississippi in their challenge to the Roe decision from nearly 50 years ago. Effectively, overturning the Roe decision would revert back the power to regula ..read more

Surgeon Fired Over His Opinions - Mines Bitcoin Instead with Dr. Buck Parker
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
10M ago
What would you do if you were fired by your employer over something you had said on social media? Would you be able to survive or would you have to scramble to find work? That scenario is exactly what was faced by today's guest, general surgeon Dr. Buck Parker. And his solution was a surprising one. Seeds of an Entrepreneur It doesn't appear that Dr. Parker never set out to find ways to be financially secure outside of medicine. His path through medical school and his general surgery residency seemed fairly traditional. However, there were signs that he had an entrepreneurial streak ..read more

The Way to Build False Scientific Consensus with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
10M ago
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya returns today to further our discussion on the dysfunction within the scientific community around COVID-19. Specifically, we discuss what exactly happened to Dr. Bhattacharya after he co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration where he and two other prominent academicians laid out a case for a more focused protection plan for the elderly than the widely adopted general lockdowns and mandates at the time. Dr. Bhattacharya was not surprised to face opposition to their plan - but the way it formed and by whom did.  A Government Bureaucratic Cabal? After the publishing ..read more

Using Blockchain to Solve Health Care with Ray Dogum
The Paradocs Podcast
by We Are Libertarians
11M ago
The US health care system is fraught with all sorts of problems. Many of these have to do with consolidation in the market and scores of rent-seekers (those using legislation and regulation to maintain their market share. Those issues can probably be best resolved with fundamental changes within the halls of government. However, some of these problems can be addressed with new technology which offers solutions not even dreamed possible a few years ago. And the driver of much of this innovation rests on block chain technology. Block Chains to the Rescue? The basics of block chains have been dis ..read more
