Phenomenal

Terrific podcast for neuropsychologists and trainees! Wide variety of topics that are related to our field and important to consider. Thanks for bringing some productivity to my commute :)

Aerospace Neuroscience

Interesting interview. I listen as a former military, airline and hobby flier. And, married to a Neuro Psyc.

I would only make one correction to the description of the FAA medical classifications. A First Class medical is required for operators of (scheduled) 121 carriers. This is basically the airlines, but not limited to people carriers. The big freight companies (Fedex and UPS) pilots require the same 1st class FAA medical certificate.

Nice work!

Navigate your inner nerd

This podcast is by far one of the most interesting, relevant, and helpful tools for me as a current grad student! I recommend it to anyone interested in healthcare whether you’re a student or practicing clinician :)
John and Ryan are hilarious and present dense topics in a way that makes for easy listening in addition to the immaculate sound quality (cheers, John).

I just got the book and can’t wait to dive into that, too! Thanks for the awesome content!
