Teaching Gerontology Classes at UE

UE's Mascot is Ace, the River Gambler
I've had the good fortune of teaching part-time at the University of Evansville, which is a liberal arts university located in the tristate area of Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois.

I was giddy when the chair of sociology hired me to teach their series of gerontology classes.

(I also teach at USI; I previously taught at WSU.)

Podcasts about COVID-19

Image by Menage a Moi.
We are still learning about the coronavirus (aka COVID-19 or SARS-COV-2).

I usually read as a way to digest information. 

However, I have been exploring podcasts as a way to learn about the current pandemic. 

By using various search terms on Spotify, I found more than 50 podcasts that include COVID-19 content.

There are many more episodes about the virus / the pandemic within existing podcasts.

To date, I have listened to at least one episode (often more) of 50 podcasts dedicated to SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19.

If you only have 30 minutes a week to listen to a podcast about the pandemic, I HIGHLY recommend listening to Dr. Daniel Griffin, MD / PhD of Columbia University present his clinical report via TWIV (This Week in Virology).  

Scroll until you find the most recent one by Dr. Griffin. 

Here is a list of some of  his publications via Google Scholar 

Here is the team behind Parasites without Borders, including Dr. Griffin. 

I present to you my Top 10 Podcast about SARS CoV-2 (the virus) and COVID-19 (the disease).

Last Update: 4 August 2021 

I found these podcasts (listed alphabetically) on Spotify, but many are also available in other places.
