Want to learn about swallowing? Be ready for career changing knowledge 🤯! The amount of information here is ridiculous. And it’s all FREE! If you love what’s offered here, go join the MedSLP Collective as well. You will NOT regret!
Love the info! But not “awesome”
Great variety of topics and appreciate what I have learned to apply directly to my practice. However, the continuous use of the word “awesome” to respond to the guest is over used and distracting. In the first few minutes of the High Flow episode, it was used numerous times. Please keep sharing the knowledge but find a new word as an interviewer!
Great for Grad Students
This podcast is a great resource for new clinicians. It breaks dysphagia myths and allows us all to be the best EBP clinicians we can!
