Information

After 110 podcasts and 57,000 downloads, I think it’s time for a change in format. Loyal listeners have noticed a drop in my productivity. This is mostly due to the fact that it is tough to think of something to talk about for 25-30 minutes, that we have not already discussed, and that I can stand talking about again.
So I am going to decrease the duration of the podcasts, and increase their frequency. The podcasts will less often be about global topics (resuscitation, respiratory failure, etc.) and will be about cases or incidents that I have lived through (possibly recently) that I feel can be instructive to the listeners. I would like to spend some time talking about the decision making, and the psychology of evaluating situations and coming up with solutions, rather than telling you things you can read on Wikipedia. I will also talk about situations and incidents that have come to bother me, and where I think we can do better.
Hope you find it worthwhile to listen to. The podcasts will be as long as it takes for me to get the point across, may be 5 minutes (bathroom break) or 20 minutes (ride into work).
Thanks for listening.

A discussion of Red Teaming and its possible application to clinical medicine. The music is a flute and sax solo I played live with Green Eggs and Sam on the Dave Matthews Tune #41. Thanks for listening and have a Happy Holiday. JY.

Discussion of risk assessment and aggressiveness. Also an audio clip from a live performance by me on tenor and Green Eggs and Sam at Trax with Ken Leone on vocals from 10 years ago. Some sax work I’m most proud of. Thanks for listening. JY
