Episode 37 – Dr. Bob Egan





On Today’s episode of the John Wayne Gritcast, we are joined by John Wayne’s personal Doctor and very close family friend, Dr. Bob Egan. 

Bob was very close with the family, he even had Michael Wayne as his best man in his wedding! Ethan and Bob reminisce on life with Duke, including how Dr Egan found out John Wayne’s Akita was giving everyone in the house strep throat, visiting Duke on set in Durango, and John Wayne’s journey with cancer. 

This is a very fun episode with someone who knew Duke very closely, we hope you enjoy!
