Great review

I am currently a PA student wrapping up my first year of school, and this podcast has been SO helpful as I prepare for finals! It has been especially nice to listen to since transitioning to online school due to Covid-19. I get sick of sitting by myself staring at a computer screen all day, so being able to listen to this while I cook, go for walks, or do other more active things has been awesome! Thanks so much!

This podcasts would be perfect if he started with the pertinent information right off the bat and also ditch the studying habit tips scattered throughout the podcasts. He does a very good job when he is actually presenting the information but sometimes I have to skip 4 minutes to get to the actual content.
