I am Dr. Todd Brandt. I am a urologist. 

These are words I couldn't have imagined myself saying as I was growing up thinking about medicine as a career. 

And I have been asked many, many times why I went into urology as a medical specialty. In this podcast I attempt to explain how I got here. Why did I choose urology as a specialty? Why do I like it? Why, if you are someone with a urinary tract, should you care? Get it? Why Urology.

This podcast is a personal experiment in medical audio content. I make the obvious disclaimer that this is not medical advice. You should be going to your own physician for that.

These episodes are meant to educate, entertain, inspire or inform you in some way with urology as the launching point for each episode. Each episode is varied in format and length as I have experimented with content. 

Listen, follow, share, rate, review, repeat...you know what to do.

If you have kidney stones, or prostate cancer, or another urologic health concern this podcast may help you.

If you have a loved one with any urologic health concern this podcast may help you. 

If you are someone who has asked, "How does my bladder do it's thing?", this podcast may help you.

If you make urine, or even if you don't, this podcast may help you.

Thank you for listening to this podcast. I do appreciated any feedback I get so please reach out to me at the link provided on this website. 

Be well,

Dr. Todd Brandt

Patients are constantly asking me how they can make a change in their lives. 

Here is what I tell people. And it is something almost nobody does. If you want to make a change in your life take your favorite writing instrument, a blank piece of paper, find a quiet place and write.

We live in a social media-driven world. Facebook, twitter, Linked In, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok and many other platforms vie for our attention, and of course the advertising dollar.  Medical practices have been trying to figure out social media, medical review sites, and online marketing for years now.  Sadly, it is...

Medical education, we are told, that is aimed at our patients should be written at a sixth-grade level if we want to have a majority of our patients understand what we are trying to tell them. Many, many people do not read or understand material aimed higher than a sixth-grade level, nor do they want or have time to, so...
