Outstanding

Outstanding series, very informative and for a person that is not in the field but has a father in aged care, I found it easy to listen and easy to understand.
Prof Joe & Prateek keep it simple, moving at a digestible pace and both have a calm disposition.
Thanks guys for putting this series together.
