Welcome to the Why Urology podcast with Dr. Todd Brandt.

This podcast is my personal attempt to teach you about your genito-urinary tract, what can go wrong, and how your urologist may just become your superhero.

The name of the podcast comes from my ongoing need to answer the question that I get so often from patients, friends, and family, “Why Urology? Why did you choose to become a urologist?”

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.
