Episode 189: A New Year brings new questions and some new but mainly old answers

In episode 189, James and Mike start off the New Year by briefly discussing the results of the TEC podcast survey. We then delve into some great listener questions. We talk about BMI, diabetes, antibiotic duration, statins etc and provide some great podcast answers. At the end we both drink champagne and get a little giddy – but we doubt anyone will notice.
