Amazing

Great content, Hard to listen

We all know the New England Journal of Medicine has reliable and up-to-date content. Is there a reason why it has to be read in a voice that seems to be imitating a robot? It sounds like they have asked Siri to read the articles.It is very distracting!

Great! I love the NEJM weekly summary podcast

I think the narration is excellent! Very clear and easy to listen to -not sure why someone would label it "annoying".
As a licensed clinical Social Worker who practices in an ambulatory oncology setting it is vital that I maintain a current knowledge of Cancer diagnosis and treatment as well as of the general U.S. Medical landscape if I am to be an effective advocate for and psycho-educator of the patients and families I support.
NEJM weekly summary is a wonderful part of my routine learning.
The Journal is fabulous and the summary is clear, succinct, and elucidating.
