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.

Cutting through the spin

I am a physician, and a follower of the TI for many years. I have relied heavily on the TI to cut through drug company spin in the past, and hope these podcasts can bring the same insights to the public at large that they have traditionally provided to the medical community.

Extremely useful

As a resident in family medicine, I find these podcasts a great way to learn useful concepts applicable to clinical practice. The topics are useful and the reviews of the literature are concise and practical. My one piece of criticism would be to dispense their humour in a similar manner to their drugs - in very low doses. An enjoyable listen!


I am a retail pharmacist and I listen to "The Therapeutics Initiative Podcast" during my walks and have listened to a number of them twice, because they are informative and relevant to my daily practice as a pharmacist. The Podcast has definitely changed the way I practice and I am no longer "spastic" about a number of telling people to finish all their antibiotics (depending on the infection)...or splitting tablets evenly. I have also been able to help a number of people who are concerned about their blood pressure and measure it numerous times daily to put it all in perspective and to ease up on the measuring. Thanks for the informative and humorous show, your work is appreciated and I recommend this Podcast to all pharmacists.
