"Living Out Loud"  Podcast! 

 Our first shows of the new season are now on line!

Co-hosts Barbara Venezia, Rene Horsch and Dr Jorge Rodriguez discuss the difference between catching a cold and the flu bug in our latest show.

How do we know the difference and what medications are pertinent to both? Dr. Jorge dispels misnomers about both. With cold and flu season upon us, this is a must listen to show... and as usual... our hosts entertain and inform us as only this trio can.

Hosts Barbara Venezia, Rene Horsch and Dr. Jorge Rodriguez have an interesting discussion about vaccines for children and adults. Should we vaccinate or not? 
The group also talks about deodorants- is the aluminum in them dangerous as some believe? 
Another interesting and provocative show!
