    The Fault in our Crust

    The Fault in our Crust

    If you live in an earthquake-prone area, there's probably one question on your mind a lot of the time: when is the next big one going to hit?

    In this episode, we talk earthquake prediction with Dr. Barbara Romanowicz, a geophysicist at UC Berkeley and the former director of the Berkeley Seismology Lab. And while earthquake prediction is definitely important, our conversation revealed to us that there's so much more we can learn from earthquakes. Earthquakes (and their sister natural phenomena volcanoes) can teach us about the history of the geography that surrounds us and the make-up of the Earth beneath our feet. And just like any good science, earthquakes can reveal even deeper questions than we knew to ask before.

    Strap in and join us for a wild ride through the center of the Earth, with stopovers in California, Japan, and on the newest Hawaiian volcano.

    This episode was written and produced by Anna Lipkin, Cindy Liu, and Kanchi Mehta. Music in this episode is by Blue Dot Sessions, Kai Engel, Ketsa, and Six Umbrellas from the FreeMusicArchive. Episode art from Public Domain Vectors.

    Of Brains and Machines

    Of Brains and Machines

    Artificial intelligence guides nearly every aspect of our lives: what TV shows we’re recommended, whose opinions we see on social media, what we buy, how we invest our money...the list is endless. But what does “artificial intelligence” mean? What do these algorithms know? If we could look inside a robot’s mind, would we see a reflection of ourselves? Dr. Dan Yamins, Dr. Kim Stachenfeld, and Dr. Grace Lindsay helped us explore what it means to be intelligent, and what separates humans from machines.

    This episode was written and produced by Celia Ford, Devika Nair, and Li Wang with editing help from the rest of the CTOR team. Music used in this episode by Blue Dot Sessions and sound effects from FreeMusicArchive. Cover image courtesy of Ben Mansky.

    Global Health in the Time of COVID - ft. Dr. Madhavi Dandu and Dr. Elizabeth Fair

    Global Health in the Time of COVID - ft. Dr. Madhavi Dandu and Dr. Elizabeth Fair

    Global Health in the Time of COVID is a miniseries from the Institute for Global Health Sciences at UCSF produced by Carry the One Radio. Each week, we speak to health experts at UCSF to learn more about them, their work, and how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed their practice and research.

    In this week's episode, we talk to Dr. Madhavi Dandu, a clinician and professor of medicine at UCSF who directs the Master’s Program in Global Health, and Dr. Elizabeth Fair, an infectious disease epidemiologist who directs UCSF’s PhD Program in Global Health. We discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the course of Global Health education, why the US’s pandemic response has fallen short, and what we can learn from looking abroad.

    This interview took place on May 28th, 2020 and reflects the state of the news and scientific literature at that time.

    This episode was produced by Ben Mansky and Nancy Cai. Music used in this episode: Slow Lane Lover, Dance of Felt, San Diego Sunday, and Hundred Mile by Blue Dot Sessions. News clips used in the introduction are courtesy of Cleveland Clinic via the CDC.

    In this week's episode, we talk to Alexandra Keir, Jane Fieldhouse, Dr. Lucia Abascal, and Maeve Forster, who are students and staff in the UCSF Global Health Sciences program. Since March, they have been working as part of the team behind Research Watch, a project to rapidly summarize new COVID-19 research and communicate it to healthcare workers, scientists, and policy makers. In our interview, we discuss the project, the challenges associated with staying up to date in an ever-changing field, the differences between responses to COVID-19 across the globe, and the major takeaways of the research that's been done so far.
