In this week's episode we had the pleasure of sitting down with Rob Vining, a physiotherapist based out of Portland, Oregon. Rob is one of the co-hosts of the PT Tech Talk Podcast and is the owner of PTlive. We chat about the current state of telehealth in the US, how new and changing laws will affect teleheatlh, and why clinics that don't adapt to telehealth may go out of business sooner than we think.

This is a raw and emotional episode that I hesitated to release for some time. It's a story about anxiety, insomnia, and a psych unit. I hope if you're out there and you're going through a tough time, please know that you're not alone. We need you. :)  -Will
