Today's scan of keyword "McMindfulness" introduced me to Zubin Damania, MD, alias ZdoggMD and His latest irreverent podcast (a video). This is an outstanding discussion of mindful meditation. He is highly iconoclastic but I found his February 26, 2018 Podcast to be a five-star discussion of meditation/mindfulness. He is similar to Sam Harris, an atheist who is an expert meditator in his use of sarcasm and humor. I definitely plan to use this to introduce mindfulness/meditation to my more cynical and doubtful friends.
Here's how he introduces himself on his website:
ZUBIN DAMANIA, MD I’m an internist and founder of Turntable Health, an innovative healthcare startup that was part of an ambitious urban revitalization movement in Las Vegas. During a decade-long hospitalist career at Stanford, I experienced our dysfunctional health care system firsthand. Burned out and depressed, I created videos under the pseudonym ZDoggMD as an outlet to find my voice. This launched a grassroots movement — a quarter billion views and a passionate tribe dedicated to improving health care for everyone.
