THE Podcast for Pre-PAs!

New binge listener here! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I plan to apply to PA school a year from now, and I find extemely helpful information in every episode! I especially love hearing interviews from PAs who work in various specialties as well as people on admissions teams. Thank you, Savanna!

Great Podcast/ Not so great sound quality

The information here is SUPER helpful. With that the audio is almost unbearable. I find myself skipping things I would like to hear about but can’t stand to listen through like background noise and feedback from the microphone. It sometimes sounds worse than things I record on my iPhone... Hope this improves because it’s important content!
