One of the best interviewers

It's an art to interview the variety of people "in COVID" some of whom may not have the best intentions or information but need to be heard & some of whom may need some structure to communicate their information well to non specialists or lay people. I'm so glad Dr Bauchner is still doing these interviews. The best for hearing all important viewpoints well & excellent information from primary sources. I still use some of these interview as key sources for COVID discussions.

Interesting podcasts

I am a retired pharmacist and I started tuning in after my daughter’s physician mentioned he listened to them. I wanted to get accurate information on COVID 19. Dr. Bauchner is an excellent interviewer gathering his own questions as well as those of the listeners. He has a good sense of humor which makes the podcasts even better.

Excellent podcast

This is really an excellent podcast, specially for physicians who are interested in various aspects of healthcare. I subscribe to JAMA and so I do have access to the published articles. But this podcast selects the more important recent article/articles and goes much beyond the written article with an interview with the author or authors to discuss its real significance in healthcare. Dr. Bauchner is excellent in his role as a very knowledgeable host asking the most pertinent questions, and the guests are, of course, ideally qualified to discuss that particular subject. The podcasts are technically well produced with great rhythm and sound quality, and pleasant to hear. Really want to thank AMA and Dr. Bauchner for doing a great public service.
