Dr. Ben Abo is a paramedic and EMS physician. He’s been on the Ted stage. He’s the medical director for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Venom response teams. He’s a fellow in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine. He’s saved a stranger who collapsed on train tracks. He’s an international man of mystery and in this episode, they talk about none of that. 

Instead, Ginger reached out to him because she wanted to make an episode about the use of humor in medicine. Ever since she saw a picture of him in scrubs, in the ER, talking on a banana phone, she knew he would be the one to teach us how to use humor in medicine.
