Miriam Murray and Keenan Laraway bring us tales from their residency interview trail, including Keenan’s real-life “is there a doctor in the house” moment during his flight from Washington to Chicago, with a guest appearance by John Boehner. Also with us are Corbin Weaver and Miriam’s brother Aaron, a simulated patient here at the CCOM who describes Dave Etler as “a genius.” Dave will likely invite him to be on the show again.
