Brilliant Brains


Adam Kay

Season 1, Ep. 1

After spending six gruelling - yet darkly comedic - years as a junior doctor, one incident caused Adam Kay to hang up his scrubs. 

Now an award-winning writer (This Is Going to Hurt) and comedian, he talks to Tim Samuels about unforgettable patients, unwanted fluids, DIY doctoring, and that incident. Adam also reveals unexpected retirement plans.
