The Career Rx Podcast for Doctors

You know you're not alone. Many doctors are frustrated by bureaucracy, stagnation, and burnout. If you're stuck on a career treadmill and your hard work isn't getting you the results you deserve, you need The Career Rx! This podcast is about modern business, branding, social media, and digital platforms to help physicians advance their careers. Grow your practice, build a successful physician side gig, achieve academic promotion, become a physician entrepreneur, and even transition to a nonclinical career. From the author of The Social Prescription (social media for doctors) and the creator of The Rx Series (business, public speaking, professional branding, and digital marketing for doctors), this podcast will help you do more of the work you love (and less of what you don't) by teaching you both timeless and modern career strategies that you don't learn in medical school. Finally, enjoy career success on your own terms with The Career Prescription podcast for doctors and other healthcare leaders.

Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
