My First Cadaver Season 2 Sneak Peek

April 14, 2017

Hey there! How ya doing? Yeah, we know it's been a while, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t thinking about you. And thinking about what you might be thinking about. 

We were doing other things, too, like being alive, prepping med students for exams and coursework success, and other life-oriented activities. Even amidst the pursuit of a most elusive Pokemon, we were still thinking, “Hmmm. What sort of things are concerning our listeners these days?” So we had a bunch of meetings, did a lot of research, interviewed some really smart people, all from which arose a glorious, if tardy, Season Two.

It’s coming folks, and not a second [wink] too soon.

My First Full Moon
