I’ve just driven for 7 hours all 7 of those hours were spent listening to back to back pondermed podcasts.

These are brilliant, I first heard of Pondermed whilst listening to the Resus Rooms Pod where Dr Lloyd gave a brief chat on his background. I find all of the topics extremely interesting, I am a Paramedic practising pre hospital medicine, and even though the pod isn’t necessarily about pre hospital medicine it is making me think about myself as a clinician and how I treat my patients, my colleagues etc .. I particularly found the “hammer out” episode interesting (need to think of a Ambulance hammer out phrase).

If you are in doubt about listening DONT BE! Tap the download button now, you will not be disappointed. This will and already has been advised to my friends and colleagues to listen.

Robbie has the potential to become a great!

Robbie has a great interviewing style; listens well, asks interesting questions, and shares his own story where necessary. Really like the series and interested to see where it goes - great insights for doctors and others.
