On the August 8, 2020 encore presentation of “Pop Life” we talk with an actor who plays a doctor on one of the most popular shows on television. You’ve seen Christina Chang in films like “28 Days” and “Random Hearts,” and on television on “24,” “CSI: Miami,” “Boston Legal,” “Suits” and “Nashville” but she is best known as Dr. Audrey Lim on “The Good Doctor.” We talk about a little bit of everything, including what it was like to move to the United States from Taiwan when she was a teenager and the kind of research she does about medical procedures to convincingly play a doctor on TV.

Then, the “Pop Life” panel, two real doctors, Dr. Brian Goldman—he’s an ER physician, host of CBC’s White Coat, Black Art and author of the national bestseller “Power Of Kindness”–and Emergency Physician and Canada’s ER Blogger Dr. Raj Waghmare, speak with an actor who plays a doctor on television, that’s “Transplant’s” Ayisha Issa about real life medicine versus what we see on television.
