Great evidence based information!

I am a big “fan” of Dr. Spencer. I almost hate to call it that because I hate celebrity, but if I am going to support someone why not a truth telling clinician. Dr. Karl, enjoy your Big Pharma lunches. I think the minuscule freebies often benefit staff more than providers depending on how the provider approaches it. If people don’t understand that providers can’t be compensated for prescribing medications, the AMA or some other professional organization should get ahead of that. The ABA needs to do similar things for attorneys.

I do hate that the publice understands so little. I think they don’t want to. PubMed is available to anyone, and that could be good or bad. However, Gil Carvallo (loved Dr. Spencer’s episode) has a great deal of information on the basics of understanding metaanalysis.

Keep up the good work!

Doctor is God Deranged

These two doctors are misinformed, spread Broscience and are extremely arrogant with their Doctor is God syndrome.

Good content, yucky audio and mannerisms

I have learned a lot and I love that. I especially like the episodes about the scaremongering regarding muscle loss with GLP-1s. That’s such valuable information! But it’s hard to stick with the podcast because of all the bad audio, and quirky mannerisms like way they talk over each other and say “my brother” this and that instead of just using each other’s names. And I hear so much fidgeting—is someone doodling with a pencil by the microphone? Repeatedly dropping a small, soft nerf ball? What are all those sounds? Please get someone to coach you in how to have a better audio experience—you will reach more listeners if it’s easier on the ears!

Adding 2/27/24–ugh, the episode title “Bustin’ Hyman Myths” just absolutely makes me want to barf and unfollow. I will probably listen anyway because it’s about glp-1s and I also dislike Dr. Hyman, but that title is just so gross and bro-noxious. Ick, ick, ick, a thousand icks. Why on earth did you think that was a funny joke? It’s not. It’s just grosssss and rude and insensitive and clueless.
