Podcasts & My Appendix

Yesterday I spent six hours in the GW emergency room with what doctors thought was appendicitis.  I tell you that not for sympathy (though a little pat on the back is nice – I was in pain after all!) but to say that I was then motivated to listen to a variety of podcasts from the Medical University of South Carolina  library (over 700 on variety of topics and over 500 by specific doctors) to vlogs and blogs on Webmd.com and Medicinenet.com.  Yes, I was multi-tasking by doing both my homework and personal research but I think this is valuable for all of us with limited time.  Podcasts allow us to get the information we missed on the Sunday talk shows or catch up on current events.  For fun I listened to Twit’s Roz who is rowing her way across the Pacific Ocean while I caught up with work on my blackberry.  Talk about technology and multi-tasking!
