Welcome to Preconceived, a podcast where we examine the preconceptions that shape how we view the world and challenge the paradigms by which we have been conditioned to live our lives. The show is hosted by ophthalmologist Zale Mednick.
Fabulously insightful podcast. Great for shedding light on the coronavirus situation in a unique and authentic way. Zale asks thoughtful questions that do away with assumptions and get to the heart of the matter.
As both an emergency room physician and a medical journalist for CBC, Dr. Brian Goldman is amongst the most well-positioned to comment on the COVID-19 pandemic. In this episode, Dr. Goldman shares his insights on the effectiveness of testing and other policy measures in combatting the coronavirus pandemic. Where is Ontario on the curve compared to other provinces and countries, and when can people expect society to return to some semblance of normalcy? Dr. Goldman addresses the morale and preparedness level of healthcare professionals on the frontlines and forecasts some of the tough decisions that they will likely face at the peak of this first wave. While fear runs high and many questions remain unanswered, Dr. Goldman outlines what Canadians can expect and why there is room to be optimistic.
This show is well-conceived and highlights the misperceptions we have in so many areas of our lives. Zale and the experts he interviews challenge us to rethink our own views on just about everything. Funny, insightful and thought-provoking!
