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!
+ NPR News Now: 5-minute international news updates, updated hourly. I love this for a quick get-in-the-loop refresh.
NPR News: 04-18-2021 9AM ET – NPR News Now
+ 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.
The Sunday Read: ‘Voices Carry’ – The Daily
+ 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

9 Things You'll Want to Know Before Becoming a Doctor – The DOCTORGOALS Podcast
+ Reconciling Medicine: The Drs. Paro (John and Rene), discuss their experience navigating medicine together, and their current lives together. Everything in this pod ranges from insightful storytelling to laughing your butt off. Highly recommend if you want to feel inspired and learn about a powerful physician couple. Episodes are usually released on Fridays.
Episode 39 – Fad Diets Are Dumb Diets – Reconciling Medicine
+ This Podcast Will Kill You: Erin, PhD, and Erin, PhD, go through each episode discussing infectious disease 101 with an entire series on COVID-19. Each episode also features recipes for Quarantinis and non-alcoholic Placeboritas. Cheers! *Released periodically :)*
COVID-19 Chapter 16: Disparities, Take 2 – This Podcast Will Kill You
+ Life Kit: NPR’s series that is a short clip of “how-tos” ranging from how to talk about uncomfortable things to getting a puppy. I love the organization of this pod and I always learn something new!
Digging Yourself Out Of Medical Debt – Life Kit
+ 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.
+ Counterclock: Delia D’Ambra is a reporter who has done an excellent job bringing light to the unsolved case of Denise Johnson from over 20 years ago. 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.
Thank you for reading! Enjoy these fantastic shows in your free time as I do.
