I’ve got a whole bunch of new, exciting episodes lined up for 2015! Next episode drops on Saturday, January 31.

maiken scott and teagan keatingThe first ever live recording of Action Phase happened during the Second Annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival! I was joined by Maiken Scott to talk about how someone who had no interest in health or science became the host of WHYY’s health, science, and innovation show The Pulse. We also chat about dealing with the emotional side of her job and what she’s learned as a behavioral health reporter. And there’s Q&A from the audience.

After catching you up on post-graduation life, I jump right into the question “What can I do to help in Ferguson?” Mostly I’m concerned about the trauma that Ferguson residents are experiencing and wonder how St. Louis and Missouri are going to address it.
