I've mentioned my doctor a few times and the great stories he has to tell (like this one or this one or this one). Well, if you've got an hour to spare, you can hear him in his own voice. He was the guest on the Tiger Gene podcast.
Hear how a man who was the youngest of 20 (!) children from humble beginnings in Kentucky became a Phi Beta Kappa scholar and one of the top doctors in Washington, D.C., but still faces ignorance from people who can't see past his skin and handles it all with grace and good humor -- and has plenty of good stories to tell.
Speaking of facing ignorance from people who can't see past his skin but handling it with grace and good humor ... while at the wedding festivities, at one point, some woman came up to him and asked if he works for an acquaintance of hers.
"No, I don't."
"What do you do?"
"I work for myself."
"I'm a physician."
"A real one?"
