Gerads ,

topic request please

hi guys LOVE your podcast. helps make me sound smart on rounds with the team.

can i ask when or if you will ever address what to me is the huge elephant in the room for Evidenced Based Medicine - TPA!

As you know there is a huge divide between the EM and Neurology community but most other doctors just assume that this therapy is well researched and very beneficial.

Thanks for all that you do!

Great podcast. I am a PA student and have listend to every episode. I will be teaching a lecture to the new students next summer about evidence based medicine, all of which I learned from the podcast. I nearly broked out in laughter when a neurologist giving a recent lecture referred to blood pressure as the silent killer.

Fun to listen too & informative

Just a great way to keep up on evidence-based family practice medicine. The premium version is worth it!
