Very entertaining and educational

Love this as a great way of getting new information. For me in anaesthetics in the UK this is a very unknown secret resource...

Brilliant EM and EBM medicine podcast

I have been listening to the SGEM since episode 62, and am hooked! It is a brilliant, easy to listen to podcast about EM and EBM, with a noble goal of reducing the knowledge translation window (how long it takes for the evidence to be translated into clinical practice) from 10 years to less than 1!
Plus, if you win the keener contest, you get some fairly awesome prizes!
