Diagnosis with Christine Friar

I'm Obsessed With This - October 22, 2019 - 34:48

On this episode of I'm Obsessed With This, the podcast where we invite a new guest to share their current Netflix obsession every week, host Bobby Finger welcomes writer and I'm Obsessed With This producer Christine Friar (@christinefriar) to explain why she can't get enough of the Netflix original series Diagnosis, based on the NYT Magazine column of the same name. How is this show -- which centers on rare diseases/afflictions, their symptoms, and their treatment -- so comforting, and why might anxious people benefit from its presentation of medical crowdsourcing as, perhaps, one of the greatest things to have ever resulted from the internet? And, finally, why can't every doctor be like Dr. Lisa Sanders?!All episodes of Diagnosis are now streaming on Netflix.
