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, 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

In this episode of the podcast I have a conversation with John Brownlee, founder and CEO of

A vidscrip is a video prescription, a short, simple segment of video, recorded by a physician to his or her patients about a specific question or topic. is a video content management tool where physicians can create and collect a series of vidscrip videos into question sets, organized by topic, such as a specific medical problem or surgical procedure.

Because patients forget so much of what is said during an office visit, a physician can direct a patient to the doctor's vidscrip page before and after a clinic visit to reinforce what a patient or family member needs to know. 

The internet is filled with bad advice and bad outcomes for patients. If you are a physician your vidscrip page can be the antidote to sending your patients away to fend for themselves online.

Whether you are a physician or a patient (and we are all, at one time or another a patient) I think you will enjoy my conversation with John Brownlee. We talk about how he got the idea to start his company, what he has learned, what patients will (and won’t) watch online, how physicians are currently using his platform, how his team can help a camera-shy physician create a vidscrip, and what’s in the future for his company.
