We are a respiratory therapist specializing in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and a nurse practitioner specializing in obesity & metabolic medicine.  There are a lot of people dealing with chronic health conditions who have never had the chance to really learn how to manage their symptoms or to learn what they really need to know.  Our mission is to make sure EVERYONE knows what they need to breathe easier and live their best life, and have a little fun along the way.

Our programming:

COPD Navigator House Call: A live question and answer show focusing on the respiratory condition Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD has been one of the leading causes of death in the US and around the world for decades, but we have made very little progress in reducing its impact. We believe part of that is a lack of good, clear, easy-to-understand communications between clinicians & those living with COPD, and we aim to fix that! House Call also provides social support for those stuck at home, and aims to put smiles on more faces with events like Holo Taco Tuesday and Fitness Friday.

From Fight to Flight w/Kelly & Mike: We're not just clinicians; we're patients, too! We've each spent our entire lives struggling with obesity & all the things that come along with too much weight: Diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue, depression, the whole thing. We know that when you spend your life fighting in survival mode, it's impossible to live your best life. By sharing what we've learned along the way on both sides of the stethoscope, openly & frankly, we want to help EVERYONE dealing with these problems take flight!

The Potatocast: America's #1 healthcare podcast (named after a cat)! Healthcare is incredibly complex, and there's a lot of confusion as to what "best" practices are for everything from how to deliver it to how to research it to how to pay for it. The Potatocast aims to break down these issues into easier-to-digest chunks, and to shine some light on hidden pitfalls throughout the system.

NitTreks: These are the voyages of a geek family having some fun with Star Trek! We look at some of the more entertaining inconsistencies, interesting choices, and flat-out bizarre scenes throughout every generation of Star Trek. Featuring Mike & daughter Emma, along with periodic appearances from the rest of the Becker-Hess household (as well as amazing renditions of each theme song on the world's finest instrument, the kazoo), NitTreks is a logical choice when you need some sci-fi laughs!

We're always looking for more channel ideas...throw in your support and help us figure out where to fly next!
