    Dave wants to help his co-hosts--M1s Nathan Spitz, Cody West, and newbs Chris Halbur and Eli Schmidt--in their journey to physician-hood, so he puts on his medical educator hat and visits Yahoo! Answers.  He also discovers that when discussing his complaint with the doctor, he wants to be the crudest possible kind of patient.

    Senorina Espanole (not her real name) writes in to tell us what she's doing to keep busy and help her community while being socially distant.  And Dave explains why toilet paper hoarding might not actually be what's happening.

    This Week in Medical News: In another sign that the old rules which society and even medicine function were, to some extent, arbitrary, the FDA has relaxed the blood donation guidelines for gay men.  Doctors treating patients with COVID can't get adequate PPE, or tests, and now they can't even get paid.  And the White House fax machine ran out of paper but because we live in THE FYOOOOTTTUURE, luckily hospitals can email their COVID testing results in!

    We Want to Hear From You: Senorina Espanola sent in a question--what about you? Call us at 347-SHORTCT anytime or email theshortcoats@gmail.com.  It's what good listeners do!
