    This is your chance to hear advice on careers, love and COVID from one of America's best-known doctors, Sanjay Gupta! Dr. Gupta is not only an Emmy-award winning CNN medical correspondent, he's also a neurosurgeon and was once listed on People Magazine's sexiest people alive. So, it's safe to say, he's overqualified to join Tig as they offer guidance to a high school student on how to break it to her mother that she wants to be a TV journalist instead of a doctor. They also help a listener decide whether to stay in their marriage or pursue a crush. And he and Tig discuss the pros and cons about being considered a sex symbol.
