Doctors Prefer Camels

In 1947, R.J. Reynolds commissioned a survey among more than 100,000 doctors, asking the key question, “What cigarette do YOU smoke, Doctor?” However, BEFORE the survey was sent out, all of those doctors received free samples of Camel cigarettes. Naturally, when the survey was taken, most of those doctors gave the answer Reynolds was expecting. In their radio and magazine advertising, their slogan was, “According to a nationwide survey, more doctors smoked CAMELS, than any other cigarette.”







The Psychiatrist and the Proctologist



Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time and decided that in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space… Find out what happens!Continue Reading

Summer Vacay!…A Moving Tribute. Keystone XL. ObamaCare: Good, Bad or Both?

YES, we have officially declared summer vacation here at the Nurse Talk studio. But, we are not just eating potato salad, barbecued hamburgers, hot dogs and jello salad with banana’s in it. No, we are hard at work retooling our show, our website, and our figures. When our new shows return in September you will hear some great new features. Nurse Talk takes on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the good, the bad and the ugly…and yes, there is a between, too. There is so much information out there that is mythical at best and crazy in its worst form. With our expert panel and our healthcare partners, each week we will discuss issues related to the ACA. Oh, and for our listeners who may be hoping ‘Obamacare’ will go away…we’ll let you know if that happens too.

Also, health and fitness expert Joanie Greggains will join us for a series of interviews with well-known health and wellness practitioners, authors and cutting edge holistic leaders.

Humor is always in the equation and that won’t change, and our new website will have interactive features so that you can chat with our hosts as we live stream the show.

So while we are away at our picnic, please enjoy a Best Of. Be safe, be happy, be healthy and keep laughing!
