More more more!

I'm a family medicine physician, and I wish there was a way to make these podcasts into patient handouts. The "post fact" culture has hit medicine full force. I've seen too many people victimized by the multibillion dollar industry of Supplements, Complimentary and Alternative Mediicine. Dr. Crislip does an excellent job with each topic, clearing the mist of woo to let reality shine through once again.

Best of its kind

Sadly, there are few Podcasts that cover the topic of alternative medicine. This is by far my favorite. Real scientific expertise, academic research, and some dry humor to boot.
