Easy to understand! Entertaining and informative!

I stumbled across this podcast and binge listened to the episodes already produced! I hope more will come out soon as it is addictive and helpful to listen to! Both doctors are down to earth and explain medical issues in a light heartened and easy to understand way. I’ve already learned that I don’t pee too much and that I need to get my skin checked. It’s a must listen for anyone interested in what happens with their body. Added bonus is the humor in it makes it fun to listen to!! Keep the podcasts coming!!
