Binge listening to this show

I love this podcast. Great story telling. Dr. Brown is funny, has a passion for learning and educating, combined with solid understanding of the research and the clinical practice in this field. He manages to translate the research in such a clear way that I don't get lost in the acronyms and can easily follow the concepts. Great communicator--thanks for breaking it down. I wish you were my rheumatologist!
