Episode 479: Cannabinoids – an update (not much) for chronic pain

In episode 479, Mike and James update the latest information around cannabinoids for chronic pain. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of new information but we talk about what there is and then try and put all the evidence into context and then how to think about the information we have.

Episode 477: Vaccine hesitancy in the office: What can I do?

In episode 477, James and Mike invite Jen Potter to the podcast for the first time to talk about the important topic of what to do around vaccine hesitancy. We find out the evidence suggests discussion should focus on the disease-prevention benefits for the individual rather than talking about misinformation around the harm or the benefits to society.
