Good stuff

Excellent material/topics, translated nicely for those of us non-physician/non-research scientists. I’m a veterinarian, so depending on the topic, many human medical podcasts go over my head. But the hosts of this show speak lay-scientist language and tie the research into the real world. Really enjoyable and informative. -Dayna Baxter, DVM (Houston, TX)
