Really enjoying this podcast so far! Especially liked hearing two people at the top of their game discuss imposter syndrome, share tips on efficiency etc. A podcast covering the biomedical informatics space is definitely needed.
Comments from a postdoc
It was great to hear two experts discuss emerging areas in biomedical informatics. I also really like their tips for time management. I can’t wait for future episodes, keep up the great work!!!
