I've been downloading the podcasts since the inception. I am able to listen in my car during my commute. I find this a terrific use of that time and I find myself seeking out many of the articles mentioned in the podcast for detailed reading.
Keep up the good work!
Great podcast but upgrade the audio
As a Neuroradiologist, this podcast has been one of many great tools for me to stay up-to-date on the latest literature in my field. However, there needs to be some serious upgrades to the audio. The opening music is about 50% louder than the host and guest voice audio and it often sounds like the host is talking while being trapped inside of a tin can. This should not be a difficult fix, especially the volume mixing of the podcast. A suggestion might be to use an iPhone as the audio recording device as it’s pretty crystal clear with the latest models.
That being said, thank you for providing this great resource and I will continue listening for a long time to come.
I really like the format, short reviews of multiple papers. Reminds me of asking a collegue in the hall about what happened in journal club today. Also a bit of humour is thrown in which is appreaciated.
