I have trouble keeping up with the latest literature, so this is a good way to get the summary of this weeks NEJM. I would have 2 suggestions - have professional actors read the abstracts (usually they are more engaging, even if the topic is dry), and to also give a little bit of a background + expert commentary on the study being presented.
Good summary but not complete
Good short intros to each article, but could be a little more in-depth
Fewer topics & more "detail" would be nice. The case report was nice right up to the point the narrator essentially said "read the article". Let NEJM subscribers have more.
