Great stuff...hope it continues

I am studying Heath policy at college. Just listened to the first podcast and learned about the most recent CMS rule changes in eight minutes. Detailed, specific questions and well prepared guests...I just hope they produce more content as I would love to be able to learn more while driving/cooking/dead time
