Most of the Jellybean Podcasts are organised into Playlists at the SoundCloud page below. The Jellybean Podcasts are rather diverse so there are Playlists based on profession (Nurse, Paramedic, Doctor etc), based on medical sub-specialty (Intensive Care, Emergency, Remote etc), based on event (SMACCdub, CICM ASM, dasSMACC etc) and based on other important matters (Jellybean Women, #FOAMed Players, etc). If you have an area of special interest its worth popping over to SoundCloud.
