Conversations: EPISODE 5

Why Do Men Have Nipples? A Conversation with Dr. Billy Goldberg

April 21, 2020

Today’s episode is with Dr. Billy Goldberg. 

Some of you may recognize Dr. Goldberg from his work as an author. 

His first book, Why Do Men Have Nipples? Hundreds of Questions You’d Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Martini, was published in August 2005 and reached #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list, where it remained for 11 weeks.

His second book, Why Do Men Fall Asleep After Sex? More Questions You’d Only Ask a Doctor After Your Third Whiskey Sour, was published in August 2006 and also reached #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.  

I’ve read both of these books and found them to be extremely informative and very entertaining.

In February 2008, Dr. Goldberg began to host his own show, the Dr. Billy Goldberg Show on Doctor Radio Sirius XM Channel 110

When not writing books or hosting his show, Dr. Goldberg is an emergency medicine physician at NYU/Bellevue Hospital in the heart of New York City.

I met Dr. Goldberg during my training at NYU/Bellevue and consider him a role model for his unique ability to combine humor and levity to patient care and resident education. 

This was a really fun interview.

We talk about Billy’s childhood, how he became interested in media, the event that led to the idea of his first book (Why do Men Have Nipples), the most influential people in his life, the best advice he provided me on the final day of residency training, and so much more. 

So without further ado, sit back, relax, and enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Billy Goldberg.
