Best podcast at the BMJ!

Dr Rudd is such a good host. Could you persuade him to take over the BMJ podcast?

Wylesff ,

Great podcast for cardiology doctors and nurses

Love this. The host is a cardiologist too which puts the topics into a clinical real world perspective. Keep it up. Perhaps weekly episodes - would love that. Good show length for commuting.

Keep up the good work!
