Fantastic podcast!

Fantastic podcast! I like being able to keep up with current literature. And the CME is awesome!

JPJane ,

Right balance between rigor and practicality

This podcast is a wonderful way to catch up on literature, listen to structured, rigorous critique of the article, and figure out how you might put it into practice. For a busy addiction, medicine clinician and academic, I find it very very useful. Thanks for doing this great work.

VPIANU ,

Great academic addiction medicine podcast

I really enjoy their review of the literature. They discuss the science behind the literature, they are interpretation of the study, and how to use it in practice.
