The key podcast in Medical Education

For this fourth year US med student and aspiring medical educator, this podcast is among the all-category top 3 podcasts to which I subscribe. Provides a broad swath of the literature and provides a good methodology and way to discuss these articles. Have referenced this podcast among all my Med Ed colleagues - from students to professor emeritus.
