It’s time we take this blog multi-media, and there’s no better medium than radio. Listening to ideas resonates so strongly with the psyche; there’s nothing more powerful than the human voice. NPR’s Fresh Air program gets the audio nod here. The guest is Elisabeth Rosenthal, a New York Times journalist who has hit the femoral nail on the head.

In order to understand orthopaedic implants, surgeons, and the state of orthopaedic healthcare, 38 minutes of Fresh Air will provide enough knowledge to make you dangerous.
