Great show

I’m a 4th year med student and recently have been binging the podcasts since 2016 to get caught up. You guys are great and hope you continue doing what you love. Highly recommended.

Smiley Med Man ,

Excellent podcast

Really informative with very knowledgeable guests. The presentation of medical information is easy to absorb and remember. The conversational style of this podcast is probably the best way to learn and remember new medical information for most people.The hosts keep the conversation lively and interesting. Thankful for their effort in putting out this podcast. Keep up the great work.

I&E thoughts

Thought on marijuana use and clinical trial: if study is conducted in multiple states and laws vary the study sponsor will have language about not using and/or abstaining to ensure consistency.
LOVE the podcast- very tangible for this nurse!
