Joe is a great example of someone who’s found his stride early in his career. As I describe in the introduction, he has a lot going on – community medicine, teaching, subspecialty medicine, internet publishing – and curling.  He’s a lot of fun to be around and it was great to have him as my first interview for this podcast.
