Great Review

Always a concise and great review - love starting my week off with this (and other similar) podcasts!

UTI topic

Most recent podcast reviewing UTIs was a little disappointing. Two male doctors discussing topic and state “but do we believe the women”? Major cringe factor, consider editing, or just not add that comment at all.
