Up late and just need a good old fashioned nerdy, academic laugh or two to the get a good night’s sleep? You’re possibly at the right place…
Dr. Glaucomflecken (Dr. Will Flanary, MD in real life) is a two-time cancer survivor and ophthalmologist. He uses humor to help biomedical academics and medical professionals manage stress, and he does so in a characteristic style which is both light hearted yet pointed. Dr. Glaucomflecken / Flanery has rapidly become, in my view, this genre’s iconoclast. His many short (some longer) videos are on YouTube: Dr. Glaucomflecken. A few particularly relevant examples, and other humor pieces, appear below.
