Interesting, informative, and engaging!

I’m not at all a medical professional, but I’ve gotten totally hooked on this podcast. Always interesting to hear experts in their field nerd out about something they’re passionate about - and Annie’s interview style makes it accessible for a broad audience (while still weaving in more technical language that’s easy for the lay-person to gloss over). The things I’ve learned from this podcast have made for great party conversation (i.e. episodes on ketamine or cannabis), some episodes have even influenced my own behavior (i.e. wounds heal faster/better if they are kept moist!), and last, but not least, this podcast really serves to humanize all medical professionals in the very best way.

The BEST Nursing Podcast

This is the only nursing podcast I could find that actually helps nurses at the bedside. It’s not about nursing burnout, how to take care of yourself, etc. Those are important podcasts, but they dont offer actionable tasks and knowledge for the bedside. This podcast will give you tools to practice safely.

Please NEVER stop producing these podcasts. They provide useful information that we use everyday. Nursing theory is great, but it doesn’t always translate to what I use for patient care everyday.

Too Slow

The few episodes I’ve attempted to listen to have been very slow to get into the meat of the discussion. It’s a lot of small medical talk/shooting the breeze for the first 5-10 minutes and honestly not what I am looking for in these kinds of podcasts (and if you’re a nurse looking to refine your practice I doubt you have a personality that has the patience to tolerate that much fluff). Hopefully in future episodes they will cut the baloney and dig into the topic more quickly in shorter 20-30 minute episodes.
