Amazing work by an amazing surgeon
This is very much worth a listen. Dr. Sarani is an important trauma critical care surgeon from the University of Pennsylvania. He is amazing on the podcast, and it is highly informative. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
You don’t need to get anything fancy, but at least make sure there isn’t any background noise. Hearing phones, doors, and such is rather distracting and unprofessional.
Mostly great content, mediocre production value
The intro says it all, this is brass tacks, no frills presentation of expert insight and (to a lesser extent) relevant literature. And the audio quality is terrible. I'm not saying you need to shamble into a studio and lay down five takes, but it's 2018. There are reasonable recording technologies that don't sound like phone calls from my Nokia circa 1998. At four different volume levels.
