Great information explained clearly
The director takes the study information and explains how it can be applied to the lives of everyday citizens. It's very useful, and the perfect length to keep from being overly boring. My only quibble is that it's really dry, and kind of monotonous. You have to be interested in the subject to stay with it.
Am I back in an undergraduate science class?
Sorry I fell asleep. No passion or creativity to keep the listener, well, listening.
What a treat to have the NLM Director offer commentary on current medical news! I find his perspective intereresting and informative. I enjoy this erudite podcast.
