  1. Hi Dr. Wolpaw,

    Congrats on 200 epidsodes! Your podcast has been a huge source of information as well as inspiration for me. I started CRNA school in 2018 and quickly found your podcast and caught up on all the old episodes. I have stayed current and have listened to every episode. I have recommended the show to other students, and I have overheard conversations by other CRNA’s and attending anesthesiologists alike talking about something cool they heard on ACCRAC that I didn’t even bring up.

    I love the inspiration to challenge dogma IE hyperoxia, it’s difficult to go against convention as a learner, but you give listeners the tools to have those discussions.

    It’s also been an inspiration mentally through tough times in school. The mantra “what you’re doing is important and valued” has been really meaningful for me. The idea that you started a podcast when you knew nothing about it or how to go about it and still forged ahead gives me courage to do other scary things in my life outside of anesthesia.

    Many of the episodes have been clinically useful, but I can specifically remember listening to all of the episodes about CABG and bypass before my cardiac rotation, and I felt really well prepared for this experience after reading and listening to the podcast. The attendings that I worked with were also very happy with my knowledge.

    Keep up the good work, I’m sure it must be very labor intensive but you have really made a huge difference for anesthesia learners!

    1. Thanks so much for the wonderful comment Mike. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the podcast over the years!
