Sensible information

This is a worthwhile listen - only recently came across it and now eagerly anticipate the next episode. Particularly found the recent episodes about nutrition very enlightening. Great to hear some rational discussion about this sometimes highly emotive topic.

Changing my prescribing

Thanks guys for all your work, if I try to read this stuff I usually fall asleep so great to listen to you pull the info together. I was put onto your podcast through Healthy Skepticism, I often listen to it as I'm driving to work (as a General Practitioner, Australia), and sometimes even get a chance to apply the info the same day :) Your light humour makes it easy to listen to and eases the acceptance of new information.
