As medical students, we are between the world of the general public and that of specialized doctors. From this perspective, we aim to digest the science and data behind public health and medical stories featured in the media in an easy to understand format. We provide information from factual sources to dispel health-related rumors and myths with discussion of evidence-based sources and primary literature. Through this podcast, we hope to connect the general public with complex medical and public health issues that have implications for their daily life.
