One of the most prominent techniques used in this podcast is the use of interview material to better understand Dr. Brandt’s life as a doctor. The interviews present Dr. Brandt under a primarily positive point of view as he checks up on his patients regularly and cares for them deeply.

The addition of the music is a nice touch that brings out more emotion within the discussion of Dr. Brandt’s death and the follow-up with suicide and depression.
