Crislip presents ID literature relevant to all medical specialties in a humorous and entertaining manner. The information is both interesting and extremely clinically relevant for those at each stage of training. Education and entertainment at the same time - who can beat that. I even made an iTunes account just to review this podcast.. It's that good.
As a few podcaster (One of the hosts of This Week in Parasitism (TWIP)) also available on iTunes I have for some time had this podcast recommended to me. I first heard of 'The Puscast' while working in India, then again in Thailand, then Cambodia, and well I finally decided I needed to give it a listen. Being a competitive fellow I was not prepared to enjoy this podcast as much as I do!First I thought I did not have the time. Our podcast is often two hour slong and people listen in parts but to my delight this little 20 minute segments are something I get bite off and swallow on my way to the different hospitals where I round as an Infectious Disease Physician. My advice...If you are trying to keep up with the literature...You definitely have the time to listen to the puscast everytime it comes out. Even if you spend many hours reading the literature Dr Crislip's take on it all is memorable and spot on. Now if you have another 1-2 hours a week and love parasites and all the other bugs .... well them This Week in Parasitism and the rest of the This Week in Virology, Microbiology, etc are for you. Now just who is this Persiflagers fellow? :-)
I have listened to a plethora of podcasts and this, along with emcrit are my favorite two podcasts. Maybe it's because they are independent thinkers, maybe it's because they speak their mind, or maybe it's because they use occasional bits of colorful language. It's probably because of all these and why the educational experience of their podcast is so effortlessly consumed. I'm tired of the complainers and their snootiness, nose in the air attitude. If they think they can put out a better podcast that people would actually listen too they should try, instead of griping because someone uses the occasional interesting language that they find offensive. If you can't handle it you should go spend your life at church and become a pastor...and grow up. Good god, let's see you do better.
Superb content I recommend it to every medical student resident and fellow( not to mention us old-timers). His quips and asides are delightful and almost make you forget the current political landscape. Just love this podcast.
Helps me keep up with ID for only an hour per month freeing me up for other reading, plus the political commentary is amusing. Ever notice that the anti-vax parents are always the first in line to demand antibiotics for their kid's sore throat?
I love this for his wit and snark, on top of interesting tidbits I can follow along without knowing much detailed medical information (although I'm sure I'm missing more details).
Not only does this podcast do a great job covering important infectious disease literature, but it is also much more entertaining than I ever would have expected. I love this podcast. Mark Crislip is awesome.
This is an excellent podcast! It is so entertaining and I love listening to it and learning what's new in ID
I've been listening to this for about 5 years and have become thorougly inculcated in Mark Crislip's tropes. For a combination of useful ID literature, puns and dad jokes he can't be beat. I look forward to listening to many more.
Glad to see you brought back your original music. A nice raw sound. Too many podcasters seem to think everybody wants to hear their favorite rock song turned up to eleven. Keep up the great work. Mike from Oregon
I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I’ve been fascinated by epidemiology since my parasitology course - and listening to Mark is a great overview of new research - presented in a warm and personable way. The bulk of the show is a review of studies methodologies and outcomes, the pros & cons thereof, and how they relate to other research or reality. And I, for one, like the occasional little jokes and respect his experience with how politics/ human behavior and epidemics interact.
Dr. Crislip does a great job of summarizing the literature and also providing enough commentary and jokes to help you contextualize what you're hearing and keep you awake. My only complaint is that his selection of articles is a little imbalanced - the podcast would be much improved by a greater focus on Harris County, Texas.
Good compilation of medical data transmitted in a friendly way.
As a clinical pharmacist that loves infectious disease and travels an hour each way for work, this is a great review and a good way to stay update. Very entertaining!
Awesome way to learn about these diseases.
Such a fun, informative podcast. Great supplement to staying up-to-date on the recent ID literature. I appreciate the personality-infused style, it makes listening easy. Thanks for the entertainment!
Helps keep me up to date on topics closely related to but not directly related to my own field.
Engaging, amusing, and informative. What more could I ask for?

This is a great podcast to listen while commuting to work, informative and entertaining. The best in ID out there. It would be awesome to also earn CME credits from it, hope that will be possible in the future?..
A fanstastic way to keep up with the liturature and get solid commentary on what's worth while and what's not. I gain knowlege I use every day-every time I listen. I recommend this to all my medical/pharmacy students
Persiflagers Puscast is, as my Grandma Phyllis would say, the bee’s knees. I am both greatly entertained and engaged in the content of this podcast. If you work in healthcare, studying to work in healthcare, or are just thirsty for knowledge of the world of Infectious Disease, I can’t recommend this podcast enough. Dr. Crislip’s other Podcast are also wonderful. I listen to “Gobbet” while I’m doing chores. Dually productive.
This is essentially a very entertaining journal club. Love it and please keep it up!
As an ED NP I love this podcast. It really helps keep us up to date. Not to mention, I love his humor, and really makes this a fun learning experience!
The current episode is neither downloadable nor playable on iTunes and the website has no obvious contact address or webmail page to leave feedback about this.

While I am not in ID, I appreciate being able to keep up with this field in such an easy manner. It's format lends itself to listening in short bursts. I love sarcasm - I think it runs in family!
I practice as a clinical pharmacist and thoroughly enjoy the witty/banter style the podcaster present his information. Its enjoyable while feeling like you're not sitting through a dreadful journal club or lecture but informative enough that if it catches your interest you can research furthure as he provide a reference. I'll be listening to this more often during my drive to work now hah.
If you have any interest in infectious disease, this podcast is for you. Dr. Crislip sums up all the recent relevant ID literature every two weeks and shares it with brilliant humor. I have yet to get through a Puscast without laughing!
I have been following this podcast for years! I like it so much I usually recommend it to colleagues and fellows. Mark Cryslip is the funniest ID doctor I know (and knowledgable ) too! Thank you
As a practicing ID physician, it is a great way to learn and laugh. Would recommend to anyone
Very valuable information delivered with style. Mr. Crislip's sarcastic wit helps me make it through long days in the micro lab with my sanity relatively intact.
This is the best medical podcast for us Infectious Disease doctors - a good review of the literature and very entertaining. Please keep up the great work, Dr. Crislip!
I love this podcast and have been listening for years. I'm not a physician and I don't work in the healthcare field, but I'm fascinated by learning about infectious diseases and appreciate Dr. Crislip taking the time to compile this information. I wish he liked dogs ;)
I am a pharmacy resident and I find this podcast so informative and helpful. Additionally, the sarcasm and biting remarks truly make this a podcast I have to hear. Thank you Mark for your work!
You don't get CME credit, but you DO get a great review of the current ID literature in a fun and enjoyable format. Try it.
Delightful, informative, and also very easy to sleep to.
It also saves me a huge amount of time I would have spent reading. Guess I'm just lazy and love a good laugh
A great no non-sense review of the infectious disease literature. It's incredibly colored by his personal opinion, but he seems both intelligent and wise, so it works well. I appreciate his tongue-and-cheek comments in lieu of the radio-dj persona so many others take on.
I am an ID fellow and this podcast helps me keep up to date and impressing my attendings!!!
This show is a lovely thing to listen to, even for a bio undergrad who doesn't understand 75% of it. Crislip is hilarious and his insight on alt-med quackery, which shows itself from time to time in the puscast, is a welcome relief at a time when ait-med has infiltrated nearly every edifice of legitimate medicine and education.
Who would have thought ID pearls could be fun & useful. This is an excellent pod cast. I always get something out of it. It's also entertaining, which brings me back to my original comment; Who would have thought ID could be fun and useful? I totally recommend listening to this dude.
Thanks for the brief synopsis of disease and consequences of use of antibiotics. There is rampant MRSA here due to hot saunas,
It's very useful to have such a condensed and high quality review of the literature in ID, incredible to be able to be up to date and choose the articles that i want to examin closer, highly recommended... even if you dont like ID, fresh style perfect for long commutes when you need to use your time wisely.
Great, brief, and very helpful review of current ID literature. Very useful for the practicing clinician that wants to retain knowledge from medical school and stay up to date on current developments within the ID world.
I'm an ID doc, and not only do I learn from this podcast but it's entertaining and conveniently lasts about as long as my commute to work. If I move further away I'll have to ask Mark to talk for longer. I only wish every medical practitioner, trainee and student could be mandated to listen to this every 2 weeks. It would make my job so much easier....
If you prescribe antibiotics and you aren't listening, you're a failure.
This is me writing a glowing review of your podcast :) I enjoy the Portland references, of course; and I was listening to some older episodes and you mentioned failblog. You just got more awesome.
Have been listening to this for years. Have forgotten most of the things Mark has talked about but do recall his catchphrases. And yet I still listen cause he has a strange quirky humor, esp for an ID doctor.
Recently came across this podcast and I'm so glad I did. I listen to the podcasts while I'm driving to work. They're very informative and fun at the same time. Two things, I wish he reviews more pediatric articles and I wish the volume of his voice is a bit higher!
Used to listen to this podcast to go to sleep. Now he tells you there are monsters under your bed. Guess the jig is up. Nice while it lasted. Maybe if I take out his neighbors dogs he'll dial down the scare factor.
