Our Story.

We started our first podcast, Therapy Insiders, in 2013. At that point, it was just two of us, Gene Shirokobrod and Joe Palmer. We had a simple goal at the time, talk about stuff that most people have wrong ideas about. We were spending hours each day educating our patients on truths about health and wellness, so we figured why not try to reach a bigger audience? A funny thing happened. People actually started to listen. Others wanted to be guests on our show. And we found our partner Erson (ok he was actually a guest and we never let him leave).

 

So as we grew in audience we decided to talk about a few other topics. We decided to combine our interests, expertise and desire to deliver content people NEED to know while adding clinical precision to it.

 

As audience and interest continued to grow, we saw the need to fully build out our own digital presence. Enter the power of social media and adding Dr. Ben Fung to the team! Dr. Erson Religioso & Dr. Ben Fung began their online presence and blogging journey within weeks of each other — back in 2011. When the vision of creating a media company for physio by physio, Ben became a natural connection and obvious choice to bring on as a content and operations officer.

 

The rest, is history…
