Chris, you are the most uncomfortable interviewer ever...other wise great work!
Suggestion: For future videos, can you please ask him some questions un-answerable by the college kids on this board? Like things only a GS MD can answer. I knew enuf to leave off the objective line when I was a college sophomore. Having 1 or 2 resume is also some-what common sense. I believe the videos will add much more value if you can ask him some questions specifically only a MD with his amount of experience would be able to answer.

Just a suggestion. Thanks a lot for doing these videos!
