Dynamic hosts & great topical listen!

Love listening to both Drs Mark and JL provide their thought-provoking takes on thorny and topical medical news and issues.

They’ve got a great back-and-forth demeanor, and I always end each episode feeling more knowledgeable — and entertained — than I did before. Going through the back catalogue now to see what I missed.

Keep up the great work!

Excellent Podcast

This light hearted podcast is filled with many laughs and tons of information. The episodes are filled with information that I never knew. It is a must listen to podcast. I look forward to Thursday’s.

Rough

This is a great concept but these guys tell terrible jokes. They try to do this snarky banter, accusing one another of having different medical problems or being on medications. If it was funny I’m sure I’d enjoy it, but it sounds forced and makes me cringe.
