The Best

This is my favorite podcast by far. Dr Lange and Ms Tracey do a great job discussing and explaining the latest medical research. They explain in under 15 minutes what would take me hours to figure out. And they do a great job giving us the most current and objective (which is difficult to find) and informed info about Covid. I highly recommend this podcast.

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).
