A great show!

This podcast takes all the most important studies every week and presents them in an understandable way. The hosts discuss the limitations and applications of the studies

My favorite podcast

Out of the 20 or so podcasts I subscribe to, this is without doubt my favorite. The topics are always interesting and informative. Rick and Elizabeth are great hosts and they are well-informed and compassionate. I am not a medical professional but I love medical science, and I always learn from each episode. I'm very glad that they restarted the show after Rick's move to El Paso (where I grew up).

Thankfully found this after they moved from johns Hopkins URL.

Bite sized info from across the medical knowledge spectrum... Fast paced and always interesting. Feel smarter after I listen!
