Well done, well presented.

Very interested to hear more breakdown of the Medicare for all bill, all topics seem to be well-researched and properly represented. Can’t wait for more of the anesthesia stories too!

Fascinating!!

This is one of favorite podcasts. I’m fascinated by medicine. Although I have little knowledge of physiology, this podcast is very friendly to people who is not working in medical field. No medical jargons, easy to understand, entertaining, and informative! The host is very knowledgeable and also explain things very well. Must listen and subscribe!!!

Great podcast.

I stumbled on this show from the suggestions feature in the Apple app and am glad I did. I love it. The episode about Dr. Sweeny learning how to do a spinal injection was fascinating storytelling (although sometimes the sound effects are a bit much, like an annoying kid brother trying to startle you). I do not have a medical or healthcare background so a story about how training happens is illuminating. The recent episode about the ethically questionable surgical “firsts” is a real eye opener too.

Great work, Dr. Sweeny. Glad you’re doing it!
