Kelly-ji ,

Low dose with huge effect size

I have been a longtime fan of the Carlat Report. It is engaging, highly practical, succinct, and--CRUCIALLY--free of industry influence.

The podcast formulates an already delightful format into bite sized morsels that are packed with flavor and highly satisfying.

I enjoy both the longer segments as well the 60 second podcasts.

Fantastic job! Keep up the great work.
