There are two goals in every interview we conduct.

1) We want to paint a picture of our guests career, how they got there and why they love it, because this could inform your later decision in life. I love it when someone says to me “Listening to your show helped me realize I wanted to work in sports marketing.”

2) We want to inform. Even if you have no desire to be an expert in biomechanics, we can still make the conversation interesting and appealing to everyone who listens.

As I consider guests for the show, I ask our team does this guest represent a career in demand that the audience may desire to become, and is this subject interesting enough to everyone else who doesn’t want that career?

So a few weeks back I get a pitch from a PR firm for Dr. Rami Hashish. I get a good deal of pitches, most of them are book tours and don’t serve the audience well so I pass. But I always consider them.

This was very different, and it got me excited right away.

I was expecting something like, “Dr. Hashish has written a book on body movement would you be interested in having him on your show?”

What I got instead was

Dr. Rami is the Founder of the National Biomechanics Institute and the Chief Technological Officer of pareIT. He has been retained as an expert witness on more than 1,000 occasions, examining injuries in sports, the workplace, motor vehicle, and aviation accidents. Dr. Rami has consulted for various organizations including pro sports team in the NBA and NFL. He has been asked by national media outlets to comment on everything injury related, including Tiger Woods’ car crash by the USA Today.

Subjects he is prepared to discuss:

• How to make the ultimate fantasy football team this year using science and research based on previous injuries and training.

• Can those shoes really make your butt bigger?”

• How is Tom Brady still crushing it on the football field at age 43?”

• Can the vaccine negatively affect athletic performance.

Now, I have no interest in being a biomechanical expert, but I would love to know the answers to the shoe question and everything else!

Get ready for a great conversation with Dr. Rami Hashish, Founder of the National Biomechanics Institute.
