Season 5 = why people hate doctors

Each episode I’ve listened to so far in season 5 had started and ended with “This podcast is intended for healthcare professionals only.” SO ARROGANT! Seasons 1-3 were excellent, educational and interesting. Season 4 was boring because it included only a few case studies. It strayed from being “a podcast about how doctors think.” Season 5 turned me off immediately because of the arrogant statement quoted above. I hope season 6 will return to the way this podcast used to be.

Great

Short, sweet and informative. Looking forward to a second season.
