Episode 28 - FCT


FCT is superior to many other treatments.  If you want to know which treatments, you'll have to go 5 rounds with Diabolical Dr. D in the ring, suffer through Rob's snooty New England anecdotes, and share your favorite foods to eat while reading journal articles with Jackie.  Only then will you have the joy of hearing a discussion about Carr and Durand and the epic Tale of FCR.  And you won't even need to use an FCR response (or should that be FC response?) to witness the heartwarming return of the lag schedule.  This podcast is like EZ tasks 100, folks!
