  • Social Distance: "Phone calls about science, health, and how to keep things in perspective."
  • Black Voices in Healthcare: " After the murder of George Floyd in May 2020, we launched a new audio storytelling series called “Black Voices in Healthcare”, hosted by Ashley McMullen, MD and executive produced by Kimberly Manning, MD. The idea behind the project is this: Stories are powerful. They can be used to erase, simplify, dehumanize, and subjugate. But they can also be used to empower, demystify, create empathy, and remind us of the beautiful, messy humanity that binds us to each other. If people in healthcare are going to engage each other in honest, vulnerable conversation about race and racism, fostering these gut-level connections is essential. Over 200 Black healthcare workers from across the country signed up to participate in this project, which aired for ten weeks from June through September 2020, and highlighted stories of racism in the workplace, as well of stories of Black joy, Black love, and Black excellence. The final episode featured a conversation between Ashley and Kimberly, reflecting on the production of the series, and highlighting their favorite stories and moments. Black Lives Matter. Black Health Matters. Black Stories Matter."
  • Flip the Script: "Flip the Script is your go-to podcast about health disparities, Hosted by Max Tiako, MD Candidate at the Yale School of Medicine, and Alumnus of Howard University.
