before we die

Before We Die follows the stories of the brave, audacious, and stubbornly persistent problem-solving gizmologists from the Med-Tech world. Join us each week as top doctors, scientists, bio-designers and entrepreneurs share their stories of unimaginable successes and heartbreaking failures as they strive to bring their life-saving technology and diagnostic innovations to the patients who need them the most. 

With an emphasis on patient perspective, hosts Joey Brenneman, Sandra Miller, John MacMahon, and Craig Ullman lend their humor and expertise to explore the stories behind the people and companies driving a multi-billion dollar market as healthcare strives to catch up with innovation.

Plus catch weekly bonus episodes of Lab Before Slab, the tangential, mini-pod featuring the random, sometimes relevant, and always quirky conversations that happen around our production table when we should be doing other work. Topics for these bite-sized shows include telehealth, health equity, and life expectancy predictors, along with the latest happenings in med-tech.
