Knock Knock, Hi! with the Glaucomfleckens

Human Content

"Knock Knock, Hi! with the Glaucomfleckens" dives into the highs, lows, and WTFs of healthcare. Whether you're in the medical field, live with a healthcare worker, or broke your arm once and are still paying off your medical bills, this is a must-listen. Join Will and Kristin Flanary (aka the Glaucomfleckens) for candid chats with leading healthcare voices like Dr. Mike and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. Discover fun facts about eyeballs, hear relatable stories from medical training, and sneak a peek into the U.S. health insurance industry (spoiler alert: it's not great!). We'll share our own perspectives of being a patient or family member experiencing the healthcare system. And, of course, we explore the question on everyone's minds: "Why has Dr. Glaucomflecken never had his eyes dilated?" Combining science with humor and a dash of snark, we unpack the human side of healthcare. read less

Our Editor's Take

The hosts of the podcast Knock Knock, Hi! with the Glaucomfleckens believe medicine is a serious business. But on many occasions, it can also be so funny that it's outrageous. Whether it's fainting residents, naked patients, or poop stories, there's something to laugh about. Dr. Will Flanary has encountered many hilarious incidents during his career in ophthalmology. But on this show, he wants to hear other people's stories.

Will and his wife, Kristin, interview ER doctors and gynecologists. Primary care providers and other practitioners get a voice here as well. The guests share their absurd cases while also discussing their journey into medicine. The goal of this podcast is to show that being a doctor can also have a fun side. The hosts want to humanize the profession and the people who choose it.

Both podcast hosts have experience in medicine. However, that experience manifests in different areas. Will has a private practice in Oregon that treats people with eye disorders. The physician also has a TikTok account, sharing medical skits with millions of followers. In addition, Will has experience being on the patient side. He had two instances of testicular cancer and one case of cardiac arrest.

Cohost Kristin doesn't have a medical degree, but she did study cognitive neuroscience. She has learned much about the medical field from being Will's partner. Her experience as a caregiver led to her becoming an advocate for patient's families. Kristin educates doctors about the importance of compassionate care. There was also that one time when she performed chest compressions for ten whole minutes.

The hosts of Knock Knock, Hi! with the Glaucomfleckens have great chemistry and present different perspectives. Will shares war stories with his peers and talks about the professional side of medicine. Kristin asks the questions that the listeners might be wondering. She also talks to the doctors about how the patients and families might feel. The interviews on the podcast are usually entertaining. But they are often also vulnerable and honest. The guests offer their criticism of the healthcare system and discuss their challenges. They offer well-rounded discussions about medicine, with plenty of laughs in between.
