Listen to Episode 8 of WBUR’s The Checkup: On the Brain
The Checkup has returned for a second season! Enjoy this health podcast, a collaboration between Slate and WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station. You can find past episodes in The Checkup’s individual feed.
From WBUR and Slate, the solidly reported and also somewhat opinionated take on health news for you and your family. This installment explores the human brain with conversations about brain implant research, dyslexia, and language development aided by music.
Your hosts are Carey Goldberg and Rachel Zimmerman, former newspaper reporters and co-producers of WBUR’s CommonHealth blog. Each episode of The Checkup features a different topic—previous topics included college mental health, sex problems, the Insanity workout, and vaccine issues.
The Checkup Podcast is produced at WBUR by George Hicks.
