It’s a Saturday afternoon and Charles Goldfarb, M.D., is in his basement cracking himself up.
Upstairs, his wife, Talia, knows exactly what’s going on: Her husband is editing his podcast again.
Chuck, as Dr. Goldfarb is known to just about everyone, is a nationally-renowned hand surgeon at Shriners Hospitals for Children — St. Louis, and co-hosts the weekly podcast The Upper Hand with Chris Dy, M.D., a fellow surgeon and professor at Washington University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. The pod, as the cool people call them, just entered its second year.
“My wife can’t understand how I can find myself so funny, but I love doing this podcast,” said Dr. Goldfarb via a Microsoft Teams call a few minutes after finishing a day of helping patients in hospital clinic.
