EvilGP ,

Always a great topical podcast

Sensible opinion & comment from 2 jobbing GPs

Bob2022 ,

Very useful podcasts

Recommend for anyone with an interest in digital primary care - practical tips and useful discussion - thanks!

Reviewsforyou!! ,

Helpful if I could hear it!

Really helpful podcast that is also interesting and here is the big but........ It is very difficult to get the balance of volume right, if I turn up enough to hear Gandhi then Andy is booming! It sounds like Gandhi is far away from the microphone or muffled? Whereas Andy is crystal clear. Please please sort out the audio so I can listen and learn from you guys.
