Episode details

Dr. Nikhil Verma is a pain management specialist and interventional pain management physician located in Columbus and Marion, Ohio. He is also a man you should follow on Twitter.

Earlier this week, Dr. Verma traveled to Bellows Avenue and did exactly one shot at The Patio before entering the thunder dome as the first in-studio guest on the No. 1 gothic horror/dark fantasy podcast on the internet.


Dr. Verma and I have known each other for decades. We could’ve regaled you with hard-scrabbled tales from the mean streets of Marion. Instead chose to focus on things like diagnosing pain, unintended consequences of the opiate epidemic, and which current banned street drug, besides weed, has the most medical potential.

Oh, and because this is a high class affair, Dr. Verma also explains how insurance companies squeeze doctors just like their patients and which country would be the base for America’s nationalized healthcare system after I win the presidency and appoint him Medical Czar to fix this shit.

All that and more in Episode 3, which will be available later this morning on Spotify and Apple Music.

If you or anyone you know would be a good guest on The Crowcast, feel free to respond to this email or direct message me on Twitter at @rooster_ohio.
