Awesome medical podcast

In an effort to learn as much as possible, while still being entertained, I've been listening to a lot of different podcasts. One that I think is particularly well done and captivating is the Vital Signs Podcast from Discover magazine.

Vital Signs showcases a series of medical tales that usually have some air of mystery. For example, a entire family is struck with seizures, even their dog; this is in "Trouble in the Nursery" (mp3 file).

The science jargon is used only when necessary and explanations are almost always provided. Narration is clear and both the male and female narrators have nice voices -- by nice, I mean not annoying, which is really aggravating for a podcast. As a side note, after listening to a lot of podcasts, you start to notice that really nasal people like to make them. What's up with that?

Anywho. Even if you aren't interested in medicine, these are tales that involve families, doctor-patient relationships, health, and good ol' detective work. Plus, they can be pretty dramatic.

The Vital Signs Podcast: it's awesome.
