I met Taylor in Philadelphia, at a networking event organized through SoMeDocs. In our early days, we used to call them “SoMeDocs Engage,” and we’d have physicians from major cities across the US meet on random weeknights to just schmooze. It was a well-needed activity we didn’t do enough of, as doctors, and I was prepared to light that fire.
Taylor was there, among attendees of that night’s meetup, wearing a smile that’s become signature. For me, it was a a-ha moment to see it, because he had named his podcast ‘The Happy Doc’. I now knew why.
Over the years, I’ve valued the work Taylor has created, watching him put foot to pedal where it came to bringing ideas to fruition. We’ve teamed up for this podcasting series, and are excited to see Taylor become an active coach in SoMeDocs’ new podcasting services, helping professionals build the foundation to their own podcasts. It’s the natural ‘next step’ in the growth of our venture.
So voila, that’s a bit of background into how this series was born.

Bradley Block, MD, is an otolaryngologist – head and neck surgeon on Long Island, New York, where he lives with his wife and three young sons. He is a partner at ENT and Allergy Associates and he created the Physician’s Guide to Doctoring Podcast. It is a scintillating and engaging podcast, where he interviews physician and non-physician experts to help teach us what we should have been learning while we were busy memorizing Kreb’s Cycle. It is a practical guide for practicing physicians, physicians-in-training and all allied health professionals. Topics range from personal finance to politics to improving interactions with patients to what every doctor should know about different specialties. You can find him at PhysiciansGuidetoDoctoring.com and on Twitter and rarely on Instagram @physiciansguide. You can’t find him on TikTok, Snapchat, Etsy or on Pinterest and you probably never will. He went to med school at SUNY Buffalo and graduated with research honors and went on to residency at Georgetown. He enjoys surfing (yes, there is surfing on Long Island), skiing (there is no skiing on Long Island), smoking meat, exercising, throwing his sons across the pool and finding any excuse to quote an 80s movie.
