"My Three Shrinks Podcast" (by
My Three Shrinks is a podcast by three psychiatrists, each

The podcast comes out as often as we can do them, which is usually
somewhere between weekly and monthly. We do try to have specific
topics, but are pretty free-wheeling, even rambling, as we discuss
topics related to psychiatry, medicine, health care, practice issues,
ethics, weather, bad hair, ducks, etc. We tend to be on the sarcastic
and humorous side, and we spout bad puns for sport. If you are
looking for something very serious, try the
journal's podcast, instead.
(Note: we cannot answer
specific questions about your personal health problems or treatment.
That's what your doctor's for!
He won't bite... ask
him/her! Also, don't expect us to write you back; the questions
we decide to reply to will get responded to in a
post or on the podcast,
so keep checking back.
By sending us email, you give us the right to broadcast to the world
all information you sent us, so don't get too specific.
If you don't want it out
there, don't send it.)

proposed health care record standards. Dinah talks about psychiatric emergencies and what should be considered an emergency. Finally, we touch
on the issue of medical marijuana.
