Medical and Premedical students should definitely podcast
An unstated goal of ours is to show medical learners that podcasting is a beneficial experience for both listeners and hosts, and we’re always banging on about the need for better science communicators. So Erin Pazaski, Levi Endelman, Kylie Miller, and Irene Morcuende were recently excited to get an email from Terel Jackson, an OSU premed who said she had gotten the message and started her podcast! Her show, Health Science (For The Rest of Us), takes “a super practical look at the body, its shenanigans, and the world of fascinating ways we try to keep it healthy.” Of course, we had to have her on the show to tell us all about her adventures in radiation, body odor, neti pots, and more. She also has some tips for people who want to make podcasting a part of their journey to medical school and beyond.
