    This episode, originally from Season 2 episode 37, outlines the CDR's "Credential Misuse Policy," how it impacts dietitians, and what to do if you're feeling frustrated with The Academy. Note, I do refer in this episode to the book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" and so there is a small section with explicit language in it. I give you a head's up when it's coming if you want to skip it!
