helps satisfy my curious nature about things

This podcast is informative and humorous. But mostly it helps satisfy my curious nature about things 🧐🔍🦠🧫🔬🧠👣👅🫁🫀🦿 I was surprised to see medical providers can earn AMA CE credits. OT also needs a similar no-cost, convenient, AOTA/NBCOT-approved way to earn even a few CEU’s. And if it were as entertaining as this pod 👌

*update: after a closer look at the Curious Clinicians wed site episode on my laptop, the VCA Health search engine wasn’t able to find any OT accreditation body approved Curious Clinicians podcasts for CEU. That’s okay, I’ll continue to enjoy the pods.

Cringe

I stopped listening to the Curbsiders due to their endless cringy dialogue and the variable quality of their guests. This show is interesting at times, but the annoying “we are funny people” puns limit the topics I am willing to endure. ED and critical care podcasts are not plagued by annoying hosts, why is IM this way?

Great podcast

I am not a medical professional but I greatly enjoy this podcast. The subject matter is often over my head, but I enjoy it nonetheless. The hosts are relatable and entertaining.
