After teasing fans for a month with the possibility, Zach Braff and Donald Faison announced on Instagram Live that they will host a Scrubs re-watch podcast called Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach + Donald.  The podcast from iHeartRadio will follow Braff and Faison as they re-watch the beloved comedy series, which they starred on for eight seasons playing doctors and best friends JD and Turk. The description released by iHeartRadio promises to showcase the bromance between the friends, saying:

“You know what’s long, tedious and boring? Surgery. You know what isn’t? This new podcast! Join Scrubs co-stars and real-life best friends Zach Braff and Donald Faison for a weekly comedy podcast where they relive the hit TV show, one episode at a time. Each week, these BFFs will discuss an episode of ‘Scrubs’, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and reminiscing on some of their favorite memories from filming. They’ll also connect with ‘Scrubs’ super fans and feature beloved show cast members for exclusive interviews.”

Scrubs originally ran from 2001-2008, with a ninth season on ABC in 2008-2009 featuring a new cast. The series followed the antics of the doctors and nurses at Sacred Heart Hospital as seen through the eyes of new doctor JD. The series also starred Sarah Chalke, John C. McGinley, Judy Reyes, and Neil Flynn and was created by Bill Lawrence. If you want to watch the show along with the podcast, Scrubs is now streaming on Hulu.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
