For the last nine years, Stanford Medicine has produced a popular podcast series called 1:2:1. It features host Paul Costello sitting down for in-depth talks with scientists, clinicians, policymakers, journalists and celebrities. (In 2015, he even talked with a former president.) When I recently asked producer Margarita Gallardo to name her all-time favorite conversations, she didn’t think she could do it. “There are too many good ones,” she sighed.
Beginning this month, we’re making our podcasts available on SoundCloud; you can find a curated selection of 1:2:1 interviews on the Stanford Medicine SoundCloud page. And though Gallardo struggled to list “the best,” she did suggest that new listeners begin with the interviews above.
