Most podcasts are about understanding. This emergency medicine podcast is about knowledge recall. Active learning requires your brain to process actively.
Can you withstand sitting with the discomfort of being asked a question until you can answer it easily and readily?
I promise you won’t be comfortable listening to each episode, but after you withstand the discomfort, your ability to recall, will be far superior than any other passive, listening.
