PODCASTS

Want to find out more about your AHS colleagues?  Listen to our "A Few Minutes With ..." podcast that focuses on AHS faculty, staff, students, and alumni. You can find that on iTunes, Spotify, iHeartRadio and other podcast services as well as our own YouTube channel.

All of the podcasts have complete transcriptions, so if you'd rather read/skim the interviews, you have that option.  (These transcriptions provide an added benefit of making any content that is covered in the interviews indexed by Google and more likely to return search results when people search for topics that are AHS research/content areas.)
