Magatronn ,

I couldn’t get enough!

I usually leave music or podcasts running in the background for noise while I work. I was so invested in this episode I didn’t even work because I wanted to listen to it with my undivided attention. I loved it! I would love to hear Dr. Lamonde on again, and maybe for a little longer this time ;) Keep up the great work!

Love it!

There are so many misunderstood foot issues out there, it’s great to hear about some differential diagnosis for these common problems. Great concept for this podcast! Keep it up.
