    Yes friends, that's the actual name of the U.S. government's race to creation a coronavirus vaccine. It's either radical or a huge embarrassment, depending on which Sawbones co-host you are. This week, we'll talk about the progress so far and what work still remains.

    Sawbones: Amnesia

    Systemic Racism in Medical Honors

    AOA is a medical honors society that's supposed to separate top-tier medical students from the rest of the pack. It helps determine which doctors get the top jobs in the most competitive fields. The problem? There's implicit racism in the way it chooses members, and fixing it may be a massive challenge.

Funny and informative!

I frequently listen to podcasts while working and this is by far one of my favorites. It’s very entertaining to find out all the weird and terrible things people have done to other people to, presumably, make their life’s better, and the way Sydnee explains it and Justin reacts to it is so very engaging. Love their dinamic!
