Hi, @sumedha_arya! Thanks for the kind words! When I did the videos, I called them "podcasts," & they're still available that way. I also do an audio-only podcast, "Blood Bank Guy Essentials," you might like. It's on all podcast outlets & at https://t.co/VrlLpzvTWD #BBGuyPodcast https://t.co/88Vz4jliu2

I LOVE it when clinicians "stumble" onto the #BBGuyPodcast! Thanks, @NicoleRelke for the kind words. Other clinically-focused eps you might like: https://t.co/gNXyndUeks (transfusion in liver dz), & https://t.co/u9AkxBX3ju (does your pt REALLY need platelets?) #blooducation https://t.co/DQoVHkIcQS

MAGNIFICENT thread, @TransfusionGeek! I'm going to interview @MurphyProf for the #BBGuyPodcast in 2021 on some of these very issues.

My favorite line in this thread: "Check once well rather than twice badly!" Could not have said it better (and I've tried!). #blooducation https://t.co/c5xLn1cyym

I'm so honored, @XeniaParisi. 😀The target audience I started https://t.co/lDiGz7CyI7 for is in fact #pathresidents, so I'm very, very happy that you are finding the materials helpful! I'm looking to update some videos in 2021, so stay tuned... 👀 #PathTwitter https://t.co/1Wt98qBLkg
Xenia Parisi, MD @XeniaParisi
Dr. Chaffin’s lectures have me “Weak in the Ds.” 😄
Every #pathresident should make sure to check into his podcasts and lectures, they are all so practical!
