This week, Dave begs listeners for reviews at Stitcher and iTunes, because he craves validation. And a listener tip (thanks, Twitter’s @Brady_Campbell) led Cole Cheney, Keenan Laraway, Matt Maves and Greg Woods to a discussion of one doctor’s campaign to get her colleagues to embrace total transparency–financial relationships with drug companies, personal values, the works. Could it lead to more trusting doctor-patient relationship, or is it completely unworkable? And why did the mere suggestion of such a thing inspire such a vitriolic backlash from her colleagues? Keenan gives us an update on his experiences on the residency interview trail. Also, a woman fights seizures which happen every time she hears a Ne-Yo song. Scientists again demonstrate direct brain-to-brain communication. A belated happy World Vasectomy Day. And Google’s new employee benefit: DNA tests to help employees with cancer find the right treatments.
