    Podcast 274: Preliminary Thoughts on the 2021 ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancer Conference

    Apologies for the long silence. We have been off doing other things — one of which has been figuring out how to cover conferences. Last month, after much preparation, we covered the American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual conference; our second foray consists of brief coverage of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) gastrointestinal […]

    Podcast 273: The journals and the pandemic — NEJM

    Podcast 273: The journals and the pandemic — NEJM

    Eric Rubin is editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine. I asked him how COVID-19 has affected that journal, which has been around since the War of 1812 and seen its share of pandemics. Listen in — it’s the first in a planned series of interviews with the editors of the principal clinical journals. Running time: 19 minutes […]

    Podcast 272: And now for something completely different… almost

    Dr. Paul Sax writes the closest thing that the NEJM Group has to humor. He’s serious, of course, since his blog “HIV and ID Observations” concerns all things infectious . But he sprinkles in the odd cartoon or links to … dog videos, fer cryin’ out loud. He scours the ID literature (and we must include […]

    Podcast 271: Checking back in with Florida — 4 months later

    Back in late March (people often tell me that, these days, 4 months ago might as well be 4 years ago) we talked with emergency physician Julian Flores, who was working out of Broward County. Covid-19 cases were modest in number but threatening to get worse, and indeed they did. The county’s cases jumped 100-fold, from […]

    Podcast 270: Is healthcare privacy possible if “all data are health data”?

    Don’t expect HIPAA regulations to protect your “digital health footprint” from prying eyes. Every time you swipe your card to buy goodies at the supermarket (are you risking diabetes with all that ice cream?), or binge-watch that kinky series (how’s your mental health these days, really?), or let your step-tracker show you’ve fallen off the pace […]

    Podcast 269: The pandemic in Texas is like a “slow-rolling level 6 hurricane”

    Podcast 269: The pandemic in Texas is like a “slow-rolling level 6 hurricane”

    We interview Dr. Michael Gonzalez, a Houston-based emergency physician, who describes the situation there as “an ongoing, slow-rolling, level 6 hurricane that just isn’t gonna go away and, more importantly, isn’t gonna tell us when landfall is coming and when it’s gonna be over.” How are his patients reacting to this surge? What does he do […]

Great news and interviews!

This is a great way to get the week’s top medical news very succinctly, and Joe Elia’s conversations with researchers are highly educational and entertaining!

I really enjoy Joe's voice

Why does he not do the Audio summaries; since the nature of the material is abstruse physicians might not accept him as legit, I like him, but
I tried to figure out why you removed him from the audio summaries and I realize maybe it was because he isn't a physician. Joe Ilea (Ileo's) voice is very nice.; his voice is so pleasant.

Decent

The interview titles and topics are very catchy. I think the interviewer for a non clinician is exceptionally bright and talented; however, a trained physician may probe the topic by asking more pertinent questions from a clinical perspective borne of experience.
