Really informative! Perfect to listen to on my way home.
Subscribed and look forward to whatever is next
Not sure what drives Dr. Porat, but I see him as a mentor, as this has has helped me in several real clinical situations.
Better than most lectures at conferences
Dr. Porat talks about how he loves open sourced education - and we are thankful to your commitment
The memory episodes were memorable
Love when it isn’t always about patient care.
I appreciate the passion of other nerds like Dr. Porat
It is what I listen to on the way into work. Dr. Porat gets me into the medical mindset to start clinical days with a spark.
What absolute garbage defending the JAMA controversy. Gil uses terrible logic. “I’m a Jew and I know racism and this isn’t it”. His anecdotes about people of color being hired is terrible as well. What were their salaries? Did they get the same salaries and benefits as their white counterparts. Instead of being outraged in a boogeyman “cancel culture” which that’s what it is. Cancel culture is not real. It’s a boogeyman that those who do horrible things want to invoke so avoid consequences. Why not criticize Dr. Livingston. You realize podcasts are edited? No one listened to it prior to it being published and thought it would be a problem? There were numerous instances to fix it prior to publication but they were never done. Bauchner needed to step down. It shows under his leadership these ideas of systemic racism being fake continue to prosper. He is fostering an institution where prominent doctors believe it is okay to say these things. His resignation was absolutely deserved. Gil you should step down or stop your podcasts. You have no authority on the nonsense you say. You’d rather make a 20 minute podcast criticize a boogeyman “cancel culture” instead of acknowledging what Dr. Livingston said was immensely harmful to the medical field and downplays the struggles of all those who were oppressed my systemic racism in the medical world. Absolutely disgusting.
Love listening to this podcast!

Great information, interesting ideas, and lots of jokes. It is nice to see other community docs with podcasts. Just keeping it so much more real than many academic shows. Please keep the episodes coming.
Great doctor. Lousy politician.
I rated you a five. You make a great doctor! But don’t quit your day job...you are a lousy, rambling politician.
Love the humor and smarts! Res iPsa loquitur
Makes Medicine Fun
Great easy fun factual reasonable funny way to polish your knowledge with well read and well researched material. Dr. Porat is a great speaker and if you listen once , you get hooked ! Thank you
Very through and useful information
Especially he comes from the context of actually practicing medicine and shows how often the literature does not support what we do. Very good points to ponder and organized. A nice audio to avoid the news and silly music on the road!
Physician Assistant here- please continue! Love love love
Very informative and entertaining
I am a PA-C in internal medicine rounding on both general and ICU floors. I’m jealous of anyone who has Dr Porat as an attending. I appreciate the guidance. Great resource that I can enjoy even on my off days. Keep the episodes coming.
You should listen too!
I have really enjoyed listening for many reasons, but mostly because he is down to earth and a realist, which I can relate to as a Hospitalist and a human being. It’s nice to learn and laugh. Thanks for doing this podcast!
Great pod cast!
So informative with references and quotes. Thank you so much for making this podcast and sharing your knowledge for free!! Enjoying it very very very very much!!
Fantastic Podcast for Future Hospitalists
Just started listening this morning and I simply cannot put it down! Thank you for your wisdom, kind doctor, and may I add, great biceps...
Great length for quick reviews on the commute to the hospital in the morning. Relevant topics with helpful pearls.
I like these podcasts.
Very interesting musings, enjoyable and entertaining.
I just found this podcast and I am so impressed! I cannot wait to listen to more of these. Thank you for taking the time to record these podcasts!
I love these podcasts! Very concise and well explained. I just wish there were more!
I love this podcast! Makes me wanna be an IM doc
Interesting and straight to the point
Solid , credible , entertaining information

Thank you Dr. Parot for our informative podcasts. This is my favorite podcast to listen to. Dr Parot is funny and entertaining and hardcore informative. Looking forward to the rest of the diabetes lectures!!
I nominate Dr. Gil Porat as King of the Nerds. His jokes are so bad they're good. His quotations of historical figures and literature are great. His podcasts are perfect bites of practical knowledge and his medical literature reviews are admirable. Thanks so much for doing these Dr. P. I'm a family doc turned hospitalist and from my perspective, your podcast rocks! I'll soon have listened to them all...! Please keep them coming!
Educational + Entertainment
Very educational and fun to listen to. I appreciate the podcast and always look forward to new episodes. Thanks.
Just found it today and have already listened to 4 on my way back from work. I practice both hospital and outpatient medicine and this is a great resource. Now would love to find a podcast for outpatient medicine.
Starting as a Nocturnist - Awesome Podcast!
Please keep these Podcasts coming daily if possible. Very informative and helpful. Thank you!
Great for Medical Providers
He is a great educator & he goes into great detail. I'm listening to it to help review for my PCCN exam & I've been learning a lot!
Acute care np student here, I found this searching for podcasts to listen to while running and driving. Great information and important topics! Thank you for providing these lectures they are a big help while studying!
Great, informative, evidence-based, concise videos. Keep the videos coming. Thank you for what you do.
Very useful on a daily basis
Enjoy the podcast
Second year medical student here. Found your podcast after searching for hospital medicine related podcasts. It’d be great to hear some of your experiences in this career and overall enjoyment/pros and cons about it!
Went from M.D. to philosopher with minor case of psychosis
Dr. Trump used to promote great understandings of medicine but once he delved into religion he took a biased self righteous zionist turn for the worst. A specific talk he has makes completely unfounded trump wagon claims about a certain religion. It is disgusting to say the least, the level these zionists go to, to oppress others.
Excellent Quote Usage
My commute time is now well spent
Quirky, smart, entertaining, thoughtful. Also, free. Thank you.
The content, depth, and pacing is perfect but I WOULD LOVE TO SEE SHOW NOTES! There are often details (citations, etc.) I'd like to file away for later but can't take note of while listening. I imagine that you already have a written outline. I'd love to see it!
Mr. Midnight Von Platt
I'm not in medicine but this is still really interesting. many things go over my head like all the technimal stuff but always was interested in medicine
Great medical podcast. Highly recommend.
Great podcast. Super professional. To the point. Highly knowledgeable and intelligent host. Great sense of humor too. Thank you so much.
thumbs up from a med student
Listened to these two lectures on my drive. They were good, informative and concise. I'm thankful to Dr Porat for taking his time and knowledge to make these podcasts. Thank you!! I'm an NP Hospitslist in a busy university tertiary hospital and we see a variety of disease processes so it's nice to refresh and hear more evidence based practice of the medical conditions Dr Porat provides. The quirky medical humor is also a nice distraction.
Thank You Dr. Porat!
As a newer to the field ICU RN I find these podcasts invaluable! Unfortunately, only a few of the Hospitalists where I work will take the time to discuss a patient’s disease process with nursing and explain the “how and why” behind the treatments and interventions we are using. Marino’s ICU Book and Up To Date are good references for me, but it’s great to have your podcast as well. Your podcast is mobile, so I can listen on the go, and you offer references so I can follow up when I have questions or wish to delve deeper into a subject. You are also do a great job at presenting knowledge in a “real world/practical application” format, with anecdotal examples as well as warnings of why certain treatments/interventions are done (or not done) for particular maladies. Please keep the podcasts coming!
MK Carroll, RN
Great podcast. Makes my hour drive to work everyday tolerable.
Not too shabby
I'm just a RN, but I find the information to be relevant to what I do with my patients every day.
This is like a mix of the first Dr Dre Album and The Wizard of Oz
Or something like that.
A little criticism of the last podcast
I've been listening to your show for years and I find it both educational and entertaining. Just a little criticism of your last show. Your argument is that the world's main problem is overpopulation that we are fighting to use up its resources. This argument would have been true for 99.9% of human history, but a historian, and especially an economic historian, will tell you that this has not been so for about the last 200 years. It used to be that all the world's wealth was one big pie, and that if you wanted a bigger slice of it, you had to attack/kill/enslave some other group of people and take their slice. Fortunately, the scientific revolution, which allowed for the agricultural revolution and the industrial revolution, has made the world's wealth an ever increasing pie. There may be more people, but there's a bigger pie. I'm not saying that overpopulation isn't a problem. However, that are developed not only have populations that are much slower growing (or shrinking, in fact), but also have the technologies and economic well being to sustain their population. So, no, the world is not like an ever increasing number of wolves fighting over the same caracass. Anyway, I love your show and will continue to listen. Just had to correct a popular misconception that even smart people believe in.
