The University of Iowa’s Carver College of Medicine is somewhat unique in that it has a Writing and Humanities Program that’s directed by a writer with no background in medicine. The Program’s goal is to work with students and integrate the humanities into the fabric of the college.

Our first episode talks with students at the Carver College of Medicine to try and answer the question, why is this important. Or maybe more importantly, what do they get out of it.

In part two, we discuss the meal replacement drink Soylent, and wonder out loud if it’s not the beginning of the apocalypse.

Who’s on:

Jason T. Lewis
Dylan Todd
John Pienta
Marc Toral
Rachel Schenkel
