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.

A must hear for every doctor!
I have been in practice for 18 yrs and have learned more in these podcasts than from any other source. It has drastically changed the way I prescribe medications. I can honestly say that I use their evidence-based guidance at least 5 times a day when choosing medications for patients, or choosing not to treat based on the data they have presented. And to top it off they are humorous, at least as funny as Canadians can be.
Great podcast as a supplement for students
As a pharmacy student in the United States I find these podcasts to be very informative and educational. They offer evidence based medicine which can at times be missed during the educational process. I find that these podcasts supplement very well with much of the 'mechanistic' medicine being taught and offers the viewpoint of what is actually seen in practice. They also help to clarify guidelines through evidence which is helpful when at times in the educational process it can appear that we as students are to take the guidlines as gospel. Overall great podcast that offers an interesting, informative, and sometimes comical view of evidence based drug therapy.
Trigonometry made simple!
No misrepresentations here - the podcast delivers as promised. 1) evidence made practical, and 2) "fun" (a humorous slant recognizing we don't know what we don't know). I recommend this to all of my fellow residents in training, as well as medical students, pharm.d candidates, and the senior internists and pharmacists who work in our graduate medical education programs here in Michigan. I'd gladly pay for the content, but for now cherish that it's freely available (and easily shared for that matter). Thanks James, Mike!
