Meet Sherwin Zanjanian… Alive & Well After A Near-Death Experience Almost Took His Life.

Not many cheat death, but if anyone can, Rachel Silver-Cohen’s dear friend from college certainly takes the prize. In today’s episode Dr. Boca and Rachel are humbled to have Sherwin Zanjanian, alive and well as their guest to share his harrowing story after suffering an aortic dissection which almost took his life at the age of 48. While Dr. Gianluca Terragrosso and his team at St. Luke’s Hospital (now renamed Mount Sinai Morningside) performed life saving surgery, Sherwin’s perpetual optimism and healthy outlook on how to face challenges head on could likely have been an equally (if not greater) driving factor in surviving this near fatal medical emergency.
You’ll be blown away by this unpolished story but rest assured you’ll be even more blown away by Sherwin himself; a true inspiration of living life with purpose, passion, gratitude and authenticity.
This is an episode you won’t want to miss!

“I’m Fine. We’re Languishing & Thank You, Listener!”

The days are long but the years fly by, right? Today’s episode covers a battery of unpolished topics including Dr. Boca feeling,”fine” which we all know kinda means not that fine! Rachel Silver-Cohen audaciously dives in with her trusty co-host to tackle the tough talk of languishing through the days with a sense of stagnation and emptiness while still craving feelings of feeling “more.” In an effort to ditch the underlying malaise we’ve faced over the months, we’ve gotta figure out how to not swim in the sea of “non okay-ness” even if it means engaging in unpolished behaviors such as voyeurism! Hey, whatever it takes, huh? The ladies also take a few minutes to share feedback from previous episodes and say, “Thank you, listener!”

Sure, There Is Mother’s Day… But There Is Also “NOTHER’S” Day!

Ok fine, so we’re a little late on honoring the mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society seeing as though Mother’s Day was last week! That said, in today’s episode while we certainly do express belated well wishes to those who fall into the traditional role of “mother” we’re pivoting a bit by taking the sesh in an unpolished direction! Inspired by an article in the New York Times titled, ‘Women Who Said No To Motherhood’ Rachel Silver-Cohen and Dr. Boca pay homage to all the women who’ve opted out of motherhood and are living their best lives child-free! Tune in for an unpolished discussion celebrating strong, courageous women who decided to zig down a different path rather than zag toward the mainstream route that is motherhood! Today we’re saluting the non-mothers, affectionately (and unpolishedly) called, the “Nothers!”

We’ve Hit The Unpolished Pause Button: Perimenopause

When it comes to Perimenopause, it certainly seems as if we’ve hit the unpolished “pause” button!

In this episode, Dr. Boca & Rachel Silver-Cohen break down the wreckage (and the uterine lining) on all things Perimenopause and “shed” some light on what to expect when you’re not expecting your body to transition into the next phase of womanhood!
