CJSM Podcast 3

jsm-podcast-bg-1It’s hard to believe it is already July 1:  summer is in full swing in the northern hemisphere; the World Cup is half way done; Wimbledon, too; and, I’ve actually seen ‘back to school’ advertisements in newspapers.  Time flies!

One of the great joys of reaching this day, the mid-point of the year, is that we get to publish the fourth CJSM issue of 2014, and it’s a good one.  Be sure to check out what’s on offer here.

In some ways, however, we publish continuously.  In recognition of the great content that has already passed the rigors of peer review and are in the queue for full, print publication, we have a “Published Ahead of Print (PAP)” feature on the main website page.  These are citeable studies, ready to read…..and ready for listening!

Yes, listen:  today’s podcast profiles just one of those PAP studies.  I got to interview William Meehan, the lead author of the new publication:  “Risk of athletes with Chiari malformations suffering catastrophic injuries during sports participation is low.”

Bill has contributed a tremendous amount of original research to the pages of CJSM. Today, sit back and hear what he has to say about the relative safety of Chiari malformations.  And remember:  you can listen to the podcasts here on the blog, at the CJSM main website, and you can subscribe to the podcast stream on iTunes. However you lay your ears on the podcast, so to speak, you’ll be happy!
