Zak Allmand goes Totally Oral and tells us about his credit card merchant service company, Apex Payment Solutions...eventually. Before that we discuss non-controversial topics such as PPE effectiveness during COVID, social injustice and if FDR knew Pearl Harbor was going to happen.
There should be no debate as to who should be the next James Bond, and discover why it should be Chris Stafford on this episode of Totally Oral.
Listen here for the exclusive interview with our friend across the pond.
Jack Kendrick Moran is ready to wreck this house. He doesn’t miss school, but he does miss his Papa and Nona as well as Spirit Halloween; he worries that it might not open in the Fall. A sad situation has presented as a possible business solution for Spirit Halloween that could benefit both parents and kids alike.
I still think a scarecrow with a bazooka and sombrero would be awesome.
He tells the story of why his high school mascot, in a town that was part of the Manhattan Project, is really called "The Bombers". He speaks his mind regarding the government approach to COVID-19 and wonders if modeling the policies of other countries would have been better.
Bill also may or may not have eaten horse meat at some point.
Dr Ryan Hussong discusses how the COVID shutdown has been an opportunity to hit the reset button on his practice and implement new systems that could make his practice better in the future. He is a major proponent of Spear Education, the Green Bay Packers and sexy accents.
Sam Groberg chats about linguistics, heritage and travel. He gives insight into what changes have occurred to the law system due to COVID-19 and how he foresees changes in law moving forward. He also wonders if a beekeeper mask would best suit his COVID-19 PPE needs. He also likes horses.

Hot off the presses, Barry Polansky brings us episode four, "A New Hope." Due to legal issues with Lucasfilms, his book was retitled as, "The Complete Dentist: Positive Leadership and Communication Skills for Success."
It's not as catchy of a title, but probably a lot less hassle legally.
Barry brings great wisdom to the younger generation, and his fourth book can help clinicians young and old to lead a more fulfilling career.
