    ** Dear Listeners, the world has become a totally different place since we recorded this episode on March 9th.  Many of our listeners celebrated their match results at home rather than in crowded auditoriums.   We are proud to see our friends and colleagues on the frontlines, working tirelessly to take care of patients amidst the Covid-19 crisis.  We will continue to record virtually to bring you more content (and hopefully a few smiles) during these times.  Sending much love to you all, Kris and Arash
