Podcast Recs

Hello everyone! I am in the midst of medical school applications and have wanted to share content with what I’m learning in my nutrition courses, but I am prioritizing my future this time. 🙂 That being said, listening to podcasts has became part of my daily routine. Since there’s not much for weekly TV shows to look forward to in 2020, I find myself looking forward to weekly podcast releases.

In this post, you’re going to find my favorite podcasts, where to find them, and when they’re released. Enjoy!

News Pods:

+ NPR News Now: 5-minute international news updates, updated hourly. I love this for a quick get-in-the-loop refresh.

NPR News: 11-27-2020 2AM ET NPR News Now

NPR News: 11-27-2020 2AM ET

+ The Daily: produced by the New York Times, Michael Babaro. A hot-topic news discussion eloquently hosted. Another great refresh for what’s happening in the world. Podcast episodes are released daily, on weekdays, and sometimes bonus episodes on the weekend.

A Day at the Food Pantry The Daily

On a day early this fall, Nikita Stewart, who covers social services for The New York Times, and the Daily producers Annie Brown and Stella Tan spent a day at Council of Peoples Organization, a food pantry in Brooklyn, speaking to its workers and clients.As with many other pantries in the city, it has seen its demand rocket during the pandemic as many New Yorkers face food shortages. And with the year drawing to a close, many of New York City’s pantries — often run with private money — face a funding crisis.Today, the story of one day in the operations of a New York food pantry. Guest: Nikita Stewart, who covers social services for The New York Times; Annie Brown, a senior audio producer for The Times; and Stella Tan, an associate audio producer for The Times.  We want to hear from you. Fill out our survey about The Daily and other shows at: nytimes.com/thedailysurveyFor more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily Background reading: Here are five key statistics that show how hunger is worsening in New York City.An estimated 1.5 million New Yorkers can’t afford food, and tens of thousands have shown up at the city’s food pantries since the pandemic began. But there is relief and hope when they are at home cooking.

  2. A Failed Attempt to Overturn the Election
  3. New York City’s 3 Percent Problem
  4. The Sunday Read: 'Man to Man'
  5. When the Pandemic Came to Rural Wisconsin

Medicine Pods:

+ Nutrition Rounds: hosted by Danielle Belardo, a newly-minted cardiologist and vegan, you learn the facts about the integration of nutrition into medicine from an evidence-based approach. Basically my two favorite things. Dr. Belardo has several guests on to discuss their domains. Episodes are released variously.

Episode 4- Eminence versus Evidence Based Nutrition Nutrition Rounds Podcast

A discussion on evidence based nutrition with Kevin Klatt, PhD, RD Before todays episode starts, we want to acknowledge the 122,000 Americans who have lost their lives to COVID19.  We acknowledge the great challenge that those in healthcare and others on the front lines are facing, as well as the many individuals who have lost a loved one to COVID19.  Our hearts also go out to the many lives affected by the sequelae of the pandemic, including the many individuals who have lost their jobs, and have been under financial and psychological stress. We DENOUNCE incidents of racism and violence that continue to ravage the black community. We want to acknowledge the heart breaking murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others who have lost their lives to longstanding systemic racism.  We stand behind the black community who have our endless support.  Black lives matter. Please support black owned businesses and charities if you are financially able to at this time. Scroll down our show notes for an extensive list of black vegan influencers and black owned vegan businesses.   Eminence versus Evidence Based Nutrition. This interview is an important one. Nutrition science can be so confusing. With so many dietary groups advocating for various different dietary patterns, how do we know what to believe? Nutrition science is a complex living organism, and we are working on projects to help get the accurate scientific information out there.

Episodes are usually released on Fridays.

Episode 39 - Fad Diets Are Dumb Diets - Reconciling Medicine

The Doctors Paro will equally make you laugh and ruffle your feathers with this episode about diets. Listen..... we've been working on figuring out the truths about nutrition for weight loss, body composition and overall health. We've fallen into SO MANY "fitness and wellness" traps. After lots of reading and trial and error - we've come to understand a lot.We are in no way dietitians or nutritionists. But the truths we speak of here are backed in nutrition science - no gimmicks. And spoiler alert - the way to achieve the goals most people have when searching for a diet is not sexy or flashy. It's boring and takes way more time then we want it to.Episode Takeaways:Brief Review of Episode 13 Food is Fuel.The Pyramid of Importance.If A Diet Requires You To Buy A Bunch Of Shit, Don't Trust It.If A Diet Promises Fast Results, Don't Trust It.What Are The Reasonable Expectations?Common Diets And Why They Work But Aren't Magic.

Ep 60 Giving birth to "The Pill" - This Podcast Will Kill You

Well, TPWKY listeners, it has been a heck of a year, and it’s not even over yet! But one thing has come to an end: our third season. Given the profound implications these next couple of months will have on the future of health and security in the United States, for our season finale we chose to cover a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts and minds: birth control. Have you ever thought to yourself, “I know this IUD/patch/pill prevents pregnancy, but how exactly does it do that?” or “How on earth did someone come up with this pill and then get it legalized?” If so, you’re in luck. In this episode, we walk through the basics of how the most common hormonal contraceptives work and then journey through the history of the various birth control movements in the United States. Finally, we wrap up with some of the latest developments in birth control technology (male hormonal contraceptives, anyone?) as well as the major legal decisions impacting access to birth control. We want to thank all of you fantastic listeners who have been with us through this wild year. You have made it all worth it! And fear not - we’ll be back with season 4 before you know it. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the first episode drop of the next season! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Life Pods

+ Rise: Rachel Hollis is an inspiring lady. This one is full of empowering messages, inspirational speakers, and ways to help your feel good. I highly recommend her books, too! *released weekly*

+ As a Woman: Dr. Natalie Crawford is a reproductive endocrinologist (or fertility physician), which she discusses in depth, but she also discusses her perspectives of going through medicine as a woman. Her podcast is inspiring to myself as an aspiring physician, but also an empowered woman.

True Crime Pods:

+ Crime Junkie: Ashley + Britt take a deep-dive into a new crime each week - whether it's solved or not. Their ability to deliver the story makes you wish it was never over. They duo is huge on advocating for personal safety and bringing justice to these crimes they describe.

MURDERED: Madeleine McCann - Crime Junkie

Madeleine McCann was just three years old in 2007 when she disappeared from her family’s room during a resort vacation in Portugal. The whole world watched with bated breath for the last 13 years while authorities searched, chased leads and named potential suspects. Most assumed we’d never know the truth about what happened to Madeleine. But you know what they say about assumptions… Sources for this episode cannot be listed due to character limitations.

Because of this podcast, there have been new leads and it is not longer considered "cold." Season 2 is coming soon, but in the meantime, you can binge all of season 1.

+ Park Predators: Delia D'Ambra is at it again with this one. 11 episode-mini series explaining a different crime taken place in a National Park. The sound effects, story-telling, and descriptions help me picture each park scene she describes. Edge-of-your-seat type of stuff here.

Wondery Series Pods

These are usually 6-part episodes that give you an inside look to several hot-topic scenarios including serial killers, deviant behavior, and true crime. Some of my favorites are listed below.

A neurosurgeon practicing when he shouldn't be. My jaw was on the floor the entire show.
The Dating Game Killer was around in the 1970s when the country was terrified of the threat of emerging serial killers. It blows my mind the amount of loopholes this man made it through to keep reoffending.
All about the infamous life of Jeffery Epstein. While disgusting, if you're interested in more information about this man, I recommend this podcast.
Yep, just like the popular Netflix show. I liked this one better than the show, however.
All about the Golden State Killer.
Kim Goldman, the sister of Ron Goldman, also killed by OJ Simpson. I loved this perspective.

Thank you for reading! Enjoy these fantastic shows in your free time as I do.
