Straight Talk MD is brought to you every week by a group of dedicated individuals. Here is a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes magic and a little bit more info about the team.
Host | Producer
With over twenty-five years of experience as a medical doctor, Dr. Sweeny has insight and training that makes him the host with the most. With the help of leading experts in various branches of medicine and healthcare, he is committed to uncovering the truth to raise awareness and improve the status quo. Qualified, tenacious, and tireless, he works to bring you the best of the best quality in both the caliber of his guests and in the presentation of the podcast. Speaking of tireless, no matter where he is, Dr. Sweeny can’t sleep past 5 am, even on vacation. (What’s that?)
All web design and audio recordings are crisp and clear, thanks to Alex. In addition to being the web master of the Straight Talk site, he is our audio engineer extraordinaire, who records in-studio with Dr. Sweeny during the taping of all episodes. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, and also received formal training for his lifelong passion, audio engineering. Apart from audio, Alex enjoys woodworking and works daily from a standing desk that he built himself.
In addition to vetting the guests for the podcast, Sara is the content curator for Straight Talk MD. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English, making her the ideal candidate for her role as creator of all writing, content marketing, and still photography for the podcast. Aside from being a person, she is a passionate minimalist.
Director of Photography
Our mid-week trailers and full-length promotional videos are shot, edited, and produced by Sydney. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in film, and acts as the Director of Photography for the podcast. In her spare time, she likes to run and has been in the planning stages of completing a marathon intermittently for the last six years.
