A great way to begin my Tuesday mornings

As a rural pediatrician of over 30 years, I so appreciate the knowledge gained weekly from this informative and approachable podcast. It sets my 12 hour office day on a hopeful footing.

Re: National conference

Usually like this podcast a lot; however this live one was, frankly, unprofessional and embarrassing, except when the guests gave serious information. All those puns and jokes (followed by groans and nervous laughs) were a waste of time. It sounded like doctors trying their hand at stand up comedy.
