The “Signal” podcast is now a year old. And in this first year, we’ve been able to cover so much truly fascinating science.


Looking back at some of the subjects of podcasts past, it’s clear to us how much things have changed — and how much the understanding of science and medicine can evolve in single year.

In this episode, we jump into our time machine to look back at human fecal matter transplants; drugs aimed at Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Alzheimer’s; deaths in clinical trials; the cost of cures vs. drug prices; and the politics of medicine.

Thanks for making our first year such a roaring success, dear listeners (200,000 of you out there decided to download or play “Signal” since our launch). Much more to come — even before this year is over.
