Where has this been all my life?

I love podcasts. A lot. And I also love science and medicine. So I've listened to all of the other science podcasts out there and was always let down. They are all either too dry and boring, or entertaining but lacking in substance. This podcast hit it out of the park. It's incredibly informative and captivating at the same time.
