Episode 212: Questions that lead to questions and then more questions

In episode 212, Mike and James get back into the saddle by jumping into a gamish of listener questions. We perfectly discuss triglycerides, pancreatitis, risk calculators, antibiotics and everything else that is of upmost importance to all health care professionals across the world. At the end James and Mike get counseling for delusions of grandeur.
