Our DFP alums are doing some great podcast work! We are delighted to pass on this latest podcast news from Nick Gooler (MFA '13).
"The podcast I've been working on for the past few months, 'Free Associations', is close to hitting 10,000 downloads! Recent topics include HIV prevention efforts in Uganda, fecal microbiota transplants, heart stent effectiveness, and lots of weird, funny, and fascinating science. It's pretty accessible and helps you understand how health research is done and how to evaluate the study claims you see in the news. Check it out!"
