The Surgical Fiction Podcast!

Great audio fiction & nonfiction to help you
weather the storms so prevalent in our lives just now!

For over twenty-five years I have been a brain surgeon. The surgical task and the writing craft are both goal directed, cerebral undertakings. But surgery is a concrete, “right now” kind of thing, and writing is a creative, “take your time” thing. Surgery requires a rote knowledge of anatomy; writing calls up an esoteric awareness of words and grammar. Surgery is relatively quick and mentally exhausting; writing is time consuming and brain building. Surgery is a team sport (no surgeon operates alone); writing may be one of the most solitary things we humans do. And, for me at least, it is also one of the most rewarding. For many years, I have spent my spare time writing fiction.

And listening to audiobooks.

THE SURGICAL FICTION PODCAST is inspired by my life as a brain surgeon—and the hours spent in between, during which I wanted nothing more than to find a good story (a great story) to occupy my time. These are just good stories well told. The podcast features audiobooks I have recorded, among other audio features. It is an eclectic mix of fiction and nonfiction, book excerpts and short stories, and interesting articles from the public domain.

THE SURGICAL FICTION PODCAST includes both fiction and nonfiction. The common denominator is just a WELL TOLD & INTERESTING tale or narrative, fiction or otherwise. In this dire time of social distancing, I strive to keep it interesting. And, while there are many interesting podcasts out there, what makes this one unique is it’s all put together by just one person, with an eye towards science, medicine, humanity, and the compassionate intersection of all three.

One more thing. Reviews are the coin of the realm for podcasts and books. Please leave a review of this podcast wherever you subscribe to your podcasts, and tell your friends about us! A word or two on social media helps more than you could ever know!
