Introducing Greyscale, a podcast created by Ben Davis, MD, family physician and faculty member at Swedish First Hill Family Medicine Residency in Seattle, Washington. Greyscale "takes a look at the not-so-clear areas of medicine by sharing physicians' own difficult encounters." The stories "showcase what can often be forgotten - the humanity behind the physician." We speak with Dr. Davis about his podcast, his inspiration for producing it, and his career path in family medicine. We also share "best of" clips from Greyscale. Greyscale can be downloaded from iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts and from Ben's website www.thebadhumors.com.
