Tom Thum : Thankyou TEDx for indulging me once again! A few things I learned from this. 1. It’s really hard to beatbox with a camera in your head. 2. Anaesthetic wears off pretty quickly 3. A lot of people have super open minds and are willing to learn despite being confronted by some pretty graphic parts of me. Also respect to Dr Broadhurst too, he graciously donated his one day off to help me out. This guy performs amazing life changing surgeries on the regular and even just working with him in the few opportunities I have had, I have really appreciated his (and many other medical professionals) tireless work ethic and passion for helping people out. Can I get a thumbs up for the doctor? 🙏🙏🙏🙏
