My Thoughts: I get a little lost during these podcasts where there’s a lot of technical and medical talk that I can’t wrap my head around. I’m surprised that Joe can follow along with everything that she’s saying, but I suppose someone who’s as healthy as he is probably has a good grasp on a lot of this stuff.
