News:
We do have an announcement to make: You might be wondering why you’re listening to a podcast host with a German accent. Our former podcast host Sunny Sandhu has left us to work in the clinic again full-time after hosting our podcast for 46 episodes.
We wish him all the best and his British accent will be dearly missed.
