The Secret Lair #43: Bacon for Non-Medical Personnel

The Secret Lair

At long last, the latest episode of The Secret Lair is up, in which Overlord Miller calls a board meeting with yours truly as the Chief Medical Officer, Natalie as the Secretary of Aesthetic Engineering, and David as the Commandant of the Air Forces in attendance. We address both the scent of bacon wafting through The Lair, and what that might have to do with the fate of the absent Overlord Johnson.

Also, therein lies a roundtable on our recent geeky pursuits, after which I find myself strapped into the Interrogation Chamber: I am interviewed about the need for, and the issues surrounding, the non-medically trained public reading articles from the medical literature directly, as opposed to merely accepting media reporting on medical study results at face value. From the medical evidence behind bedbugs and superbugs to finding citations to support beer and good health, it’s a fun and informative chat.

Go here and listen, else when the Overlords’ time comes, you will be the first into servitude.

My weekly consultation is live at The Secret Lair, in which I clinically evaluate some medical learning objectives that everyone should know.

Additionally, I have neglected to mention my last couple of Lair columns in this space: a followup on the WHO/mobile phone decision with a close look at the INTERPHONE study, and a report on the Marian Call/Art of Akira event at ThinkGeek headquarters.
