Episode 147: Definitively vague questions with vaguely definitive answers

In episode 147, Mike and James cover the issue of humor in teaching, put drugectomies in LTC facilities into perspective, discuss the use of antibiotics in COPD, and finally contextualize bisphophonates and estrogen for fracture reduction. At the end they agree that the 30 minutes of podcast excellence should leave the audience laughing and crying but not for the right reasons.
