1 | How Loud Should a Podcast Be?
This podcast may sound a bit louder (maybe a lot louder) than some other podcasts. The reason is that it's required for some podcast outlets. And for those of us who are hearing impaired, it works better because a low-volume podcast sometimes can't be turned up enough for us to hear it.
2 | AAA Supports Transcripts for This Podcast
The American Association of Anatomists (AAA or "triple-A") is now sponsoring the searchable transcripts available with episodes of this podcast. I'm a member of AAA, why don't you join me?

The TAPP (The A&P Professor) app has many features:
It's a great way to share this podcast with colleagues. Just ask them to go to their device's app store, which everyone knows how to do—even if they don't know how to access a podcast. Plus, they get the great functionality of the app!
Your homework assignment: share this podcast with ONE other A&P colleague before the next episode arrives.
4 | The Silent Teacher—A Conversation with Aaron Fried
Aaron Fried, A&P faculty at Mohawk Valley Community College and national speaker on human body donation and anatomists in Nazi Germany, joins Kevin for a lively discussion of the value of "the silent teacher"—the human body donor—in teaching human structure. This chat touches on the value of respect and appreciation of human donors, proper implementation of human remains such as skeletons in A&P courses, and how that respect should extend to reproductions of human specimens.
This is the first of two conversations with Aaron Fried. The next episode (Episode 30) will delve more deeply into the anatomy illustrations produced by anatomists in Nazi Germany and the many ethical questions surrounding their continued use in anatomy labs around the world.
