Introducing Podcasts – An Interview with Dr. Ben Dawkins

Although my wife loves podcasts, I have never been as much of a fan. It’s hard for me to dedicate my attention to them, except when I’m walking. But they are a valuable medium, particularly for my topic. Interviewing veterinary professionals is a powerful storytelling tool to get my message across. So, introducing podcasts. Enjoy!
