A family physician's favorite podcasts

Four days out of the week, my round-trip commute to my academic or clinical offices averages between 60 and 90 minutes (the other day I typically telework). That's between 4 and 6 hours I previously spent listening to the same songs over and over on the radio, until I belatedly discovered podcasts. Aside from a few sports and television-themed podcasts, most entries on my regular listening list relate to topics covered on Common Sense Family Doctor, and occasionally provide inspiration for future posts.
