The best health related podcast!

Of the dozen or so health related podcasts I have looked into this one is the best by far, and it's the only one I felt compelled to review. This guy knows his stuff and he has guests on who know their stuff. Most importantly, he is an excellent interviewer/ host who really elicits a maximum amount of useful and interesting information from his guests in a relatively short amount of time.
