Love it all!

Love the entire idea of a dysphagia podcast that highlights all the issues, research and need to know info in this awesome field! So well executed and easy to listen to and absorb! Thanks for all the quality content Theresa! Keep them coming please!

Not very useful

I found that these podcasts are not very informative for someone who is already practicing in the medical setting. Most of the time is spent telling us to use instrumentals (OK, we get it already), yet very little detailed information is provided about the actual subject matter e.g., trach, the effects of intubation on swallowing, etc. They are very general and might be useful for a beginner.

Love It!

Wonderful podcast! Provides a great discussion of EBP and debunks the myths that infiltrate medical speech language pathology. Best of all, the information is FUNCTIONAL in the real world setting!
