Rank #1: 306 – Student Loan Education with Heather Jarvis & Kevin Soehner
Heather Jarvis - AskHeatherJarvis.com
Heather graduated from Duke University School of Law cum laude owing $125,000 in student loans and facing 30-years’ worth of $1,200 monthly payments. No one ever told Heather that she couldn’t afford to go to Duke, even though, um, she couldn’t. Her mother was a modestly paid executive assistant and her father a mostly unemployed Shakespearean actor.
Heather didn’t realize she couldn’t afford an expensive education until after she got one.
At one time, people who earned fancy grades at fancy law schools got offered fancy jobs with fancy paychecks. Having become all fancyfied, Heather had to decide: take the job she had been dreaming about all her life that only paid $25,000 per year (representing people facing criminal prosecution), or make a boatload of money.
Duke Law’s generous loan repayment assistance program made it possible for Heather to eschew the money without defaulting on her student loans (Go Devils!). She will always be grateful that Duke enabled her to continue ignoring her own financial security in pursuit of her irresistible urge to stand up for people in trouble.
Heather has practiced public interest law for more than a dozen years. Beginning in 2005, Heather focused her advocacy work on reducing the financial barriers to practicing public interest law.
Heather has contributed to student debt relief policy for the House Education Committee and others in Congress, and has dedicated her professional efforts to advancing public service loan forgiveness which allows recent graduates to dedicate their careers to the greater good. Heather leads efforts to establish and expand student debt relief programs and to inform borrowers, schools, and employers about how to benefit from available debt relief programs.
Widely recognized by school professionals and media representatives as an expert source of information, Heather has trained thousands of students and professionals and is sought after for her sophisticated legal knowledge and accessible teaching style.

Rank #2: #TBT Adam Meakins on Manual Therapy
The name Adam Meakins always causes a stir in the profession of Physiotherapy (Physical Therapy for us Yanks). We caught up with Adam last year at this time and wanted to bring back his thoughts on manual therapy. At the time that was the topic of discussion on the social media platforms and true to form Adam didn’t hold back.
A year later Adam is actually facing some increased scrutiny from his UK governing body about his word selection on social media.
We hope for a great outcome where everyone wins in this situation.

Thank you so much for having me on again it easily my favorite podcast to be on good job of like interviewing people and just so like team listen to south you, and it's also cool. I don't know if I have a record in anything else. But when I told my I'm gonna tell my wife about this. And I she's gonna find me more tractive. Honestly, that's what I bring table. You bring that. Mabel up here. More attractive, but we gotta add something else to your resume. I mean, we should also let people know you do business coaching specifically within the world of physical therapy. But now, author I'll be honest, Pat myself on the back when I read a book, and you went out, and you wrote a book. Yeah. For somebody that also I have probably about fifty books that I'm halfway through have way through media. And I told my wife I was like, but if you add up the fifty percent of all of them, I'm through twenty five. Good. That's pretty good. Yeah. It's pretty solid. I just quick to kind of move on to something else. So the fact that actually sat down and for eight months put together my thought process on what I've learned in business.

Rank #19: What’s APPening? – Essential Anatomy 3D Anatomy App
It's a 3 D anatomy app that lets you see the WHOLE body at once! You can highlight a bone, or muscle or nerve. You can remove complete layers of the body all at once or you can take things away one by one. One feature that I love is you can highlight a structure... like pick a muscle, my fav is the serratus anterior, and you can highlight IT and that will make the rest of the body a little dimmer, so you can still see it, in context. With over 4000 Structures in high detail, it'll even help you pronounce the hard to say things in the body... like how DO you pronounce glo·mer·u·lus anyway?
10 body systems TOTAL to play around with, it's a must have for the PT student and clinician. These include: Muscular, Skeletal, Connective Tissue, Venous, Arterial (including the Heart), Nervous (including the Brain), Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary and the latest addition Lymphatic. Clever functionality found within the app allows the user to strip away layers of muscle via the ‘scalpel’ tool. Graphics are 3d and seamless and lets you rotate around the structures. you can even set up a quiz (cough cough PT STUDENTS STUDYING FOR BOARDS?) pick drag and drop or multiple choice and 3d anatomy will quiz you on what you're looking at... and you can buy more than just essential anatomy, they let you bundle buy with their other great apps that are a little more specific. like heart pro, foot & ankle and shoulder pro.
It's available on all of your apple devices, computers and android tech. The app is $9.99 but I'd suggest going for a bundle for around $20 and getting 3-4 different apps.
This app is TOTALLY worth the $9.99 price tag and is amazing for PT Student or Clinician alike.
Jimmy rated this a 6/6 giving it a perfect 6-pack score on the PT Pintcast scale.
