The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta.

I am really enjoying listening to this podcast. Apart from the 'crappy' gags, James and Mike actually have something to offer in the way of a rationalised and practical approach to tackling the phenomenon of "evidence based practice".
This is a worthwhile listen - only recently came across it and now eagerly anticipate the next episode. Particularly found the recent episodes about nutrition very enlightening. Great to hear some rational discussion about this sometimes highly emotive topic.
The best resource for doctors I have come across! Has changed the way I think about medicine and has brought back the passion to my practice.
