Parents and patients share uplifting journeys on new LiSTNR podcast


It’s one thing to study and practice medicine for decades and be able to talk about different conditions when it comes to the health and development of a child.

It’s another thing entirely to live through the experience as a parent.

In a new LiSTNR original podcast, Dr Golly and the Experts, launching today – April 26 – Dr Daniel Golshevsky (Dr Golly) talks with ‘experts’ – parents who have, through necessity, become a specialist in their child’s or their own health journey, from diagnosis to day-to-day treatment and beyond.

The stories are sometimes painful, often heart-warming and always inspiring, and told through the voices and hearts of high-profile Australians as they talk to Dr Golly, a Melbourne-based paediatrician and father of three.

Given his unique position as former Chief Resident Medical Officer at The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Dr Golly has treated many high-profile Australian families as they deal with medical conditions including epilepsy, autism, eczema, sleep deprivation, croup and ADHD.

He has a rare talent as an expert, and as an expert translator.

In the first episode Dr Golly speaks with Australian sports broadcaster and Seven Sport presenter, Hamish McLachlan (pictured above) whose daughter Milla was diagnosed with West Syndrome at eight months old. This story tugs at the heartstrings and defines the power of hope.

In upcoming episodes Dr Golly speaks with Steph Claire-Smith, author and co-host of the @kicpod + KICBUMP and co-Founder of @keepitcleaner about childhood eczema, AFL players Jarryd Roughhead and Jordan Lewis on their fatherhood experiences, former AFLW player Moana Hope and model Isabella Carlstrom on breastfeeding issues, and bestselling author, podcast host and TEDx speaker Melissa Ambrossini on mixed families.
