We all have our favorite commute podcasts. But, did you know that there are at least two homegrown UCSF education podcasts, The Spark: Medical Education for the Curious Minds and Academic Life in Emergency Medicine (ALiEM)?

ALiEM describes itself as "your digital connection to the cooperative world of EM. We strive to reshape medical education and academia in their evolution beyond the traditional classroom."
