Dr Robert Califf conducts a series of in-depth and personal interviews with his peers in the world of cardiology to find out what makes them tick, how they feel about the future, and what lessons they have learned during their exceptional careers.

Dr Richard Schatz's father danced with Fred Astaire and went on to become an engineer. His Sicilian mother was determined her sons would be doctors.

Listen to how, under the watchful eye of these two extraordinary people, he went from paying his own way through university and medical school to becoming a pioneer in the world of cardiology.
