Ortho Show

I find this podcast fascinating. I am not a doctor or in the medical profession. The content is easy to follow and Dr. Sigman and his guests take complex medical content which becomes easy to understand. The content on the pandemic is real and not media biased. I have plenty of great conversations when I participate in my zoom calls with friends and family!!

Keep up the good work!
