In The White Coat Diaries, Soneela Nankani creates a memorable portrait of Norah Kapadia, a brilliant medical student who is slightly baffled by the human aspects of patient care. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb talk about this new audiobook from Madi Sinha that’s perfect for fans of medical TV shows. Nankani is fantastic as the narrator, capturing all of the characters perfectly. She seamlessly moves Norah from intern to resident and portrays a person listeners will laugh and cry with as her roller coaster life fills with complications.
