Today's storyteller is Dr Carol Silberberg! She's a consultation-liaison psychiatrist living in Melbourne, Australia. I met Carol through HB5 - which is the 5th cohort of Homeward Bound - and it was really great to have her on for a one on one conversation. So, today we talk about a LOT of topics, including about her career, what drew her to medicine in the first place, choosing a path in life, how one transports a cello from Canada to Australia, doctors orchestras, Homeward Bound, education in Australia, and gender balances in our respective fields. It's really hard to title these episodes sometimes because the blip of a title never fully captures the whole episode! I titled it as I did because I couldn't list everything we talk about (I never can) - so enjoy the conversation!
