Dr Tomek 'Thomas' Piorkowski ,

Both practical and academic - who’d have thought?

Useful for the practical clinical wisdom brought to the table and for expert perspectives on issues I would otherwise not be keeping up with. I’m holding thumbs that they’ll do an episode on statistics and the changing understanding of p-values, I think they would make it a great episode. They do tend to goof off a bit in the beginning of every episode but I enjoy it and one can always skip it to get to the good stuff.

Informative and entertaining
