Coach Scott Laigo is the President and Founder of Student Athlete Advocates in Seattle, Washington. I'm proud to present his interview as our third "Special Feature" episode (E21), especially given the value this information provides to parents and athletes!
Coach Laigo created Student Athlete Advocates based on his experiences as a Head HS Football Coach, after realizing the challenges faced by his players and parents! In this interview, we discuss a wide range of topics impacting today's high school athletes.

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
