RCJournal Podcast is fantastic

This is a terrific very well executed podcast. I am very busy, and ashamed to say I get behind catching up on the Journal. But I always listen to music at work. This is a great way to get caught up with ease. If something "catches my ear", I'd take note of it for later review. It sounds very much like NPR, easy going with musical interludes. Certainly not dry. Sara Forgy does a great job reading the abstracts, and I especially appreciate commentary by the notable Dr. Dean Hess. Kudos to to the AARC and RCJournal staff for a very well executed plan. Mark Rogers, RCP, RRT

Great service!

Congratulations to the journal and the AARC! Great addition to the only science journal specifically for respiratory care practitioners. I listened to it and now I'm looking forward to getting my hard copy of the journal. I also subscribed to future podcasts. It should make me a better respiratory therapist.


Wow, these are terrific! Nicely done, and what a great idea. These sound very professional, and it is especially good to hear the article abstracts followed by a meaningful summary and discussion by the editor. I don't have time to read every article but now I can at least hear all the abstracts on the commute.
