About Us

How IS it made med?  While know-how is everywhere, we’re all about how those who are shaping the future of healthcare got to where they are. While the facts are important, stories and community are our focus.

If I could time travel into the future, my first port of call would be the point where medical technology is at its best because, like most people on this planet, I have this aversion to dying.

- Neal Asher

As a team of human physicians and engineers, we have an aversion to human suffering and dying.

Unfortunately, we’ve also noticed that healthcare innovation can be difficult to grasp, and even more difficult to do. We aim to show stories of struggle and success, alongside thoughtful discussions of what the past was like and what the future of healthcare could be.

Join us on our journey! From listening and subscribing to our podcast, to messaging us or joining our community, we hope to make the future of healthcare easier to understand, to relate to, and to collaboratively innovation in for the benefit of our communities.

About the Hosts

Geoff

Co-Host

Geoff is a medical graduate with an interest in the complexities of scaling medical technologies and the relationships that make up the health tech and healthcare ecosystems we rely on so much.

*Why did you join the team?:*

I listen to alot of podcasts, and I know firsthand how important medical innovation is. I've always wanted to learn how new medical technologies are scaled so that people all over the world, not just locally, can live better lives. It's clear to me that a supportive medtech community built on the stories and learnings of those who came before us could be so, so helpful.
