Episode 82: Lost faith in surrogates yet? ACCORD challenges beliefs again

In episode 82, James and Mike discuss the latest results from the ACCORD trial. While the results really showed no difference between the groups, these results should make a difference in what you do. During much of the podcast, Mike does an unbelievable impersonation of a parrot but, we aren’t sure if anyone will notice that difference.
