Great daily update

This podcast is a fast and convenient way to stay up to date on the news in medicine. Was better when it came out in the morning. Can you go back to that?

Excellent, Fast Medical Updates for Clinicians & Advanced Consumers

It’s tough to deliver a 7 to 9 minute daily podcast covering the most significant advances in medicine. This one delivers and is as much a part of my daily podcast as is the NYT podcast The Daily. Congrats to the MDEdge team that puts this together.
