Roger introduces the podcast. The three key opinion leaders, Jörn Schattenberg, Manal Abdelmalek and Naim Alkhouri, discuss their fast-paced, high intensity travel schedules.

00:04:41 – Groundbreaker: a special memory of Stephen
In place of a traditional SurfingMASH groundbreaker, Roger asks each panelist to share a special memory of Stephen. In turn, panelists discuss how they got to know Stephen and/or the role he has played in their lives. Summaries cannot do the emotion of these recollections justice.

Roger asks the group each to describe an accomplishment that Stephen has left the field. Each panelists provided at least 2 or 3, with no redundancy.

00:23:52 – “Harrisonisms” and wrap-up
In closing, Roger asks panelists each to provide a favorite “Harrisonism.” Answers varied, although every group member recalled Stephen’s question, “Is the juice worth the squeeze.”

00:33:33 – Question of the Week
Roger asks how listeners feel their lives or work were affected by Stephen Harrison, either directly or indirectly.
