New look November: Your monthly update from the Talk Public Health team
Author: Talk Public Health
Depending on your outlook in life, you might consider the breadth of topics in public health either as a positive or a negative. The positive part of this is that there are always interesting things to think about, and you meet a diverse range of fascinating collaborators in your everyday work. The negative is that it implies that there are such wide-ranging issues that need to be addressed in our world, and if you are an inquisitive public health professional, you spend your time in perpetual FOMO (fear of missing out) mode, envious of somebody else’s research topic.
In some ways, Talk Public Health is possibly our attempt to remedy the latter. Such have been our plans for the upcoming season, titled “This Is Public Health”, to give a nod to the ASPHER campaign. We want to explore areas outside of our everyday work. But on the other hand, there are particular topics that we are especially passionate about. To give you a hint about our very first episode, this is why we’ve taken on the task of “greening the world” via our rebranding campaign.
Yes, we have rebranded! And we are super excited about it. If you haven’t been exposed to enough eye-catching green yet, you can catch us and our adorable public health canaries*, Nary and Cary, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. AND you can listen to our trailer already, on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, Spotify, Google Podcasts and Youtube!
So, you have things all figured out, now? We hope that this means that you’re standing by, waiting for episode 1 to drop. But just because you’re on top of the listening logistics, it doesn’t mean that we can’t still surprise you! Hint #2 of the day: our special guest for episode 1 is a super VIP! Also, we are running our very own research project that we have named PHLOPS, and it features YOU! That’s right, PHLOPS has now gone through the ethics approval process, and you are invited to be one of our participants. Survey one will be released with the first podcast episode of the season. Stay tuned!
*Yes, canaries CAN be red, if you feed them enough chilli! (Reference: Anny’s grade 5 class encyclopaedia set. We have better references for our actual podcast, promise.)
