On Sunday, March 17, Maggie Exton and I sat down with Charles Camacho to talk mathematics, graduate school, and life lessons on the weekly radio show Inspiration Dissemination. The link below will take you to the blog post I wrote about Charles’ work. The interview will appear on the ID podcast in the very near future.

Applied medical anthropology – an interview with Holly Horan

On December 9th, Adrian Gallo and I interviewed Holly Horan on the show Inspiration Dissemination. Holly is doing amazing work at the intersection of human health and anthropology in her studies of maternal health and stress in Puerto Rico. She has spent about a year and a half on the island (divided among a few trips), interviewing 80+ people in what is now the largest-ever study to measure perceived and biological maternal stress during and after pregnancy in Puerto Rico. Her time in Puerto Rico coincided with the Zika outbreak and, on a later trip, with the arrival of Hurricane Maria. I wrote a post giving more details about her work over at Inspiration Dissemination, and you can listen to our interview with her on iTunes here.
