Great Pharmacology Podcast

I'm an emergency physician and medical toxicologist (not a pharmacist) in the U.S. and I've really enjoyed this podcast. Some of the guests I recognize, some I don't, but they have all been knowledgable and engaging. The toxicology episodes have been accurate and informative, and the episodes that are more clinical pharmacology-based are particularly useful for background when evaluating a drug for formulary addition.
