Do you ever wish you could have an open and honest conversation with a researcher about a study they published and learn the back story behind the work? If so, Shop Talk is likely of interest to you. We identify some of the most novel research in musculoskeletal medicine and interview the authors of the work. Shop talk gives perspective on “why” the work was done and what the researchers think about the work they created. Shop talk interviews are updated routinely and we plan to include interviews in Spanish and Portuguese in upcoming episodes.
